CPC issues December Outlook; Does Ryan agree?

With the storm I was following, I didn't have time to post the latest DECEMBER OUTLOOK from The Climate Prediction Center. Above, I show you the temp projection. It says we stand a better chance at seeing ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS. The second image, which is below, states that chances are leaning towards ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION.

Does Fannock agree?

Well, I do agree with above normal precipitation. I believe the first few weeks we'll be dealing with mixed bags of precip. Typical scenario would be cold weather for a few days, warm up to rain, then back to cold weather. However, I do not agree with above normal temperatures being the average. I do see some warm ups. Some of them will feel like Spring! BUT, it won't be enough to pull the AVERAGE TEMP above normal. Time will tell..

All 3 models agree! Very warm to frigid temps

Now that this chaotic storm is out of the picture, I was looking for something exciting on the models. No, I didn't find a storm to write about. But I did find some extreme temperature swings! I checked the EURO first and I saw a big fat 60 degrees for December 10th. Then, just 1 day later we struggle to get past 25 degrees for a high! 

So I figured it would be smart to check other models because it could have just been an error. Nope, no error. The GFS and CMC both agree on 55-60 degrees plus highs in the 20's the following day. Of course, with highs in the 20's, you know TEENS follow at night. So there ya have it, the three models I check for medium to long range weather show bipolar temperatures. 

Oh, one more thing. It's not going to be a SUNNY 60 degree day. Of course it only warms up to rain in our area. Hmm. Remember me saying that in my Winter forecast? 

Thanks for reading,
