So doing my regular swipe through the forecast models today and I came across a beauty of a long range forecast.
Basically, our first few weeks of 2010 are going to be wet. And not just a little wet. If the forecast holds (and yes, that’s a big if right now) then between January 1 and January 14, we could see upwards of 400mm of rain.
That’s what the model is saying right now. Again. This could change, but it’s worth noting that there are “big” things being forecast all around North America right now. From a major New Years Eve blizzard in New England and New Brunswick, to a major cold snap afterwards across the continent… to.. yes.. our little neck of the woods. Where we have one mother of a week coming at us.
At this point it looks like there could be a good shot of wind as well with the system on the 8th-10th period. But again, it’s very far out, so too soon to say for sure.
So there’s you’re New Years heads up. Get ready for at least a little rain… and possibly… as much as we had in November. No small feat.
