Weather Rewind, December 4-10, 2011
The big story of the past week was the midweek storm that brought between two and three inches of rain to the region and brought anywhere from a coating of snow to several inches of snow over the Poconos. After a moderately dry stretch of weather from late September through mid November, Snowtober notwithstanding, we've reentered a wet pattern across the Mid Atlantic as the mean storm track has generally been overhead or to our west. Resulting precipitation has been above average for much of Pennsylvania, with the bulk of the highest precipitation totals to average across the Ohio Valley where they have doubled normal rainfall over the past thirty days. Dry weather has controlled the West and Northern Plains in that time.
