First things first. The models have converged in showing the Friday storm on a NE track over Lake Huron. So that means place like Sault Ste. Marie will have blizzard conditions while we have a little bit of snow, changing over to rain Friday evening/night, changing back to snow on the cold front passing through late Saturday. The cold front will bring colder than normal temps that will moderate towards normal after a 4 or 5 day period. EC is out to lunch with their current temp forecasts for early next week ( Sunday: Low minus 3. High minus 1. Monday: Low minus 7. High minus 1.)
After that period, winter will seem to have decided to be done. Below is the map for average anomoly for a week starting next Friday (source). Note the big brown patch over us. We may be hitting positive double digits in that time period. And I am not seeing much hope beyond that either for much winter weather... So enjoy today.
Update: I also will note the EC forecast high for tomorrow is +1, not the +8 it was saying on Tuesday.
