NEW YORK (WABC) — In his latest podcast update, WABC-TV Eyewitness News chief meteorologist Lee Goldberg goes long range into December.
Does the exceptional cold and flurries in late November around New York City (and heavy snows upstate) suggest an early start to a bone-chilling and snowy winter?
Lee digs into the record books to see if there are any correlations. And then, he examines the atmospheric trends in the first half of December, and whether they favor continued cold or the return of warmer weather.
IT’S GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE WHILE FOR THIS WEATHER PATTERN TO GEL.
In the second half of the month, he looks at the polar vortex, and explains why a strong one doesn’t bode well for cold down here, but he sees a signal of PV weakening, and that could potentially offer opportunities for wintry weather later in the month. He explains how that could work.
Finally, he looks at the coronal mass ejection from the sun, and how the subsequent solar storm could produce brilliant Northern Lights for those lucky to be in their path. He shares his predictions.
