Dire Prediction for Missouri & Illinois First Week of December?
I will admit that weather is hard to predict, so there's a good chance that I'm completely wrong and a dire prediction for Missouri and Illinois for the first week of December is accurate. Let's pray it's not.
I have asked my weather wife (aka the meteorologist) about what the Farmer's Almanac is predicting for the first week of December and she can't find any weather computer models that agree with it. Keep that in mind as I share what the prediction is from the almanac people.
I got curious about what their extended forecast was for the Midwest and specifically Missouri and Illinois. Here's the exact quote for what they predict for December 1st through December 3rd:
Fast-moving disturbance brings gusty winds, near-blizzard conditions; more than a foot of snow for some.
I bolded the part I find unbelievable. Let's emphasize once again that I can't find any computer models that even show this as a possibility. What concerns me is the "fast-moving disturbance" part as we've seen some surprise systems over the years blow up in the mountain west suddenly and make their way across the Midwest.
One caveat. My wife mentioned that the Great Lakes region COULD see something like this, but not northeast Missouri and west-central Illinois.
It's not impossible, but I really don't believe that this dire prediction will come true. Just to prove I'm not imagining this, here's the exact graphic on Farmer's Almanac:
Be wrong. Please please be wrong.
I share this as a warning to just keep an eye out as December gets closer for some surprise weather system out west that takes aim at us. Hopefully I can report back that this was just a mirage.
