I hope everyone had themselves a wonderful and long Thanksgiving weekend. I had a great weekend with family and friends. …oh so stuffed from turkey, potatoes, pie, and of course a beverage here and there.
On my drive back to Wausau today from the Milwaukee area, I was just so amazed by all the green grass sticking around. The warm November has really thrown me through a loop. Most golf courses I drove by still had the flags in the holes and were open for business!! When the official numbers come in tonight…November will be a top 5 warmest on record. I just saw at tweet from Jeff Last the WCM at the N.W.S. Office in Green Bay..stating that El Paso, TX picked up 2.1″ of snow today, which is more snow than Rhinelander has received all month.
The Northwoods did pick up a little snow today…anywhere from a dusting to an inch. The Northwoods will have another shot for snow on Wednesday with a similar system, and there could be lake effect snows far north on Thursday and Friday. We will also closely watch what could be a very strong low to the south. Right now the forcasted track has the storm completely missing us.
Some good news for skiers!!!………. Granite Peak has been able to make a little bit of snow over the last couple of days and temperatures later this week will be ideal for snow making.
Time to get back to work!!!
