Snowstorm hits London, heat wave in our futurePosted Monday, February 2, 2009, at 5:05 PM
Remember the snowstorms that struck New Orleans and Las Vegas in December? The crazy weather continues, this time hitting another place that rarely sees heavy snow: London, England.
Here's what the Associated Press is reporting:
LONDON (AP) -- It was hardly a blizzard, but it still shut down the city that beat the Blitz.
I haven't looked at the weather charts, but it's possible that the remnants of our own ice storm may have crossed the Atlantic and triggered the London snow.
Heat wave coming soon
Last week, the computer models were hinting at a good chance of snow today or tomorrow. Thankfully, that isn't happening. A weak Alberta Clipper system could bring some very light snow showers or flurries tonight, but the radar is not very impressive, so I would be surprised if we received more than a dusting.
The clipper will bring colder air for two more days, with temperatures remaining below freezing until Wednesday. So all of the sleet/ice/snow/whatever still on the ground isn't going anywhere fast.
However, forecasts for later in the week are calling for a heat wave -- at least by February standards. We should see temperatures in the low-to-mid 50's from Friday through at least Monday. There is a chance of rain -- liquid rain -- during the weekend. That should flush away our white stuff once and for all.
