2011 Weather in ReviewJanuary 3rd, 2012 at 9:52 am by Michelle Muscatello under General Talk, Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
It was a year that started out snowy and ended with some record warmth in Autumn… here’s how 2011′s weather measured up to more than 100 years of record keeping:
It’s hard to imagine given the snow “drought” we’ve been experiencing, but last year’s seasonal snowfall total came in just under 50″. And January 2011 was one of the snowiest on record (4th snowiest January and 6th snowiest month all-time) with 30.7″ of snow.
This work week will continue with the temperature see-saw we’ve been experiencing for the last few weeks. We’ll see a 2 day cold snap followed by a return to “average” temperatures on Thursday and Friday then above-average temperatures for the weekend.
If you’re ready for some weather action–the pattern looks a little more interesting next week…. possibly even by the end of the weekend. This morning I added some rain/snow into the forecast for late Sunday. Several of our computer guidance models are showing a developing area of low pressure in the southeast US. While the 00z GFS continues to keep Sunday afternoon dry in southern New England, the 00z ECWMF, 00z Canadian and 00z NOGAPS models are all bringing rain and possibly some wintry mix into our area on Sunday/Sunday night. It will be something we’ll continue to track in the days ahead.
