How Much Snow Will We Get This Winter?
We're officially nestled in to the crazy weather of Fall in Missouri. Winter doesn't get here until Monday, December 21, but with some of the temps we've had lately you wonder if it's arrived early. But then you get another autumn day in the Show-Me state that offers the high in the low 80's. Go figure. With the crazy weather we've had this year, will we have an abundance of the white stuff this Winter?
We've settled into daytime temperatures, for the most part, in the 40's and 50's the past few days but Summer still wants us to know she hasn't gone on vacation just yet.
Thursday's high is forecasted to be in the low 80's in Sedalia but the next day we're back in the low 50's. In fact looking at the forecast from the National Weather Service, next Monday evening and Tuesday, there's a chance of rain snow showers.
So what does the The Farmer's Almanac have to say about all this weather stuff? At this time, the 2020-21 weather predictions are looking like this:
