December 26 Still Cold But Warming And Record Buffalo Snow | will it snow in florida

December 26 2022

Monday Morning Report

That now infamous Bomb Cyclone brought us the coldest Christmas Eve in 130 years, tying the record low afternoon in Baltimore at 20ºF not seen since 1892.  Since then, we have slowly turned the corner to trend upward. 

A clipper system is bringing snow to the MidWest, but it looks like after hitting western Maryland, it will fall apart.

  • Morning: Still Cold Today
  • Mid Week Warming 
  • New Year Weekend: Rain Storm Both Days


Most of the eastern half of the US is still under the influence of this arctic cold. It even brought show showers to central Florida, but the main event has been in Buffalo. As of Christmas afternoon they had 43 inches of new snow.  A fresh band of heavy snow has reached them this morning, which may help bring them to a final total close to 6 Ft.

This storm has already resulted in 13 people dying in Buffalo. Here is a sample of what it has looked like there:

What is amazing, is that daily routine goes on, such as this store remaining open with business traffic.

Weather Across The Nation

The clipper I mentioned a few days ago looks impressive on the map, but this is a MidWest thing. It will mostly bring just clouds east of the mountains.

Extended Look: Jet Stream

This longer loop extends to January 8. We can see the start with cold (blue) in the eastern US, then warming with our next storm, which may last through the first week of January. 

The next suggestion of colder air and a storm will show up by January 8 into the middle of the month.

My thoughts: 

A large variation of record cold to warmth, shows a highly amplified and energized jet stream. There is more to be shown and winter is just getting started. Like last year, I believe it will get very active here in January and February. Faith in the Flakes. 

7 Day Forecast

Warming up with the storm next weekend.
