Here is what the latest ECMWF model weekly long-range forecast output shows into the second week of January.
I forgot to label the first map... I guess I am getting a little tired. Anyway, as most of you know, purple is colder than normal, red is mild, green is wet/snowy and tan is drier than normal. Unshaded areas indicate near-normal temperatures and precipitation.
I will blog about the weather the rest of this week and into next later in the day Friday.
