It’s getting about that time, mid-December is the typical transition time for folks in southern Missouri to go from 50ish for highs and 35ish for lows to 35ish for highs and God knows what we’ll see for lows.
Some years, like the last one in ’21-22′, was relatively warm… But that was the exception. I don’t get the feeling we’ll be quite as lucky this year. As a matter of fact, there’s a major winter storm brewing in the northern states as I write this. Up there they are talking feet instead of inches… Makes me glad I moved from Chicago to Forsyth (near the Arkansas boarder) many years ago.
Right now along about 4:40 PM, it’s about 55 degrees Fahrenheit under overcast-rainy skies. Nothing to write home about, but much better than we’ll see in the coming weeks. (For those with an interest, my weather station is located at https://tempestwx.com/station/67063).
I keep everyone posted from time to time, as to how bad it is. If my sore bones are any indication, it should be an interesting season.
