First things first, the long range outlooks are trending to a colder second half of February. So I haven't given up on a measurable snow yet. We will see and I will talk more about that in future posts. I have been concerned over the last few weeks about the coming spring severe season.
After having computer issues, I am finally updating this blog. The number one question on everyone’s mind is if we are going to get any snow to speak of this year. We just can’t seem to get things to come together.
As the gloomy, gray winter days become more and more common this time of year, winter blues can set in. These periods of depression are called seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and is a condition that occurs as the light dwindles in the autumn,
It’s that time of the year when families who decorate for Christmas might be thinking about selecting that perfect live tree for their homes. If you are choosing the real thing this year, here are some tips to keep your Christmas tree as healthy as possible this holiday season.
We are now in December and the weather is about to take a big turn. The Christmas season is upon us and many folks are asking about the snow possibilities. I can tell you that there are several possibilities of seeing snow over the next few weeks.
There are a great many changes taking place across the northern hemisphere in regards to the weather. In fact, there is so much going on that it is hard to keep up with and therefore, confidence in the outlooks is a best guess situation. So let’s start in the short term.
It has been bone dry in Kentucky and especially western Kentucky for the past 8 weeks.

All these conditions can partially be explained by the re-emergence of the La Niña in the Pacific Ocean.
Daylight saving time ended at 2:00 A.M. on Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016, as clocks were set back an hour. I have been going through this ritual for years and never stopped to find out much about it. So I’ve done my research.
It is a boring week of weather while we wait for the next changes to arrive. The leaves are changing, pumpkins are being carved and Halloween is upon us. But what do we know about this unusual holiday?
We are very warm for October, but things are about to change. We will have a significant return to more typical fall weather with highs in the 60’s and low 70’s. But there are rumblings of other things going on that will eventually affect our late fall and even the winter outlook.
I am looking at the weather too much lately. But now there are new signs that something is up. This time it isn't in the tropics. The teleconnections are going deeper than I have seen them in years. Almost to the extreme.
Many of you have been keeping up with Hurricane Matthew since many are either headed to the Gulf coast or soon will be for fall break. I have been watching this closely and I am thinking it would be better to avoid Florida altogether.
It may seem like you have seen more butterflies than usual lately. With fall weather finally arriving, some butterflies migrate in order to escape the coming cold. In all the world, no butterflies migrate like the Monarchs of North America.
So where is the fall weather? Afterall, it is getting to be late September and we are still dealing with warm highs in the upper 80’s and uncomfortable humidity. We have been getting brief shots of cool air but they just don’t last long.
