Happy New Year!

Good Tuesday and Happy New Year. Let me start out by thanking each of you for every single thing you guys do for our weather family that is KWC. The site is more than 10 years old now and we have never gone a day without an update. Here’s hoping 2019 gives you the most magical year of weather, yet.

As we look back at 2018, rain was by far and away the dominant weather headline. Many cities recorded their wettest year on record, establishing a new bar that may live for a long, long time. If we look back at rainfall numbers for the year, some areas topped out at better than 80″…

Just look at how much real estate hit 70″ or more! Just… WOW!

As far as temps for the year, our high temps were actually below normal across much of the region…

 

With lots of clouds and water vapor filling the air from the soggy ground, overnight lows were MUCH above normal….

Those lows skewed our yearly average temp to a little above normal…

How do we roll into the first few days of the new year? The next system rolls at us in waves, with the main low on Friday. One band of rain increases on Wednesday into Wednesday night with the bowling ball low following that up with heavy rain the chance for a little mix or snow from Thursday night through Friday night…

I have a lot of football to watch today, but I’m still going to try and throw you an update at some point. Have a fantastic start to 2019 and take care.
