ILLINOIS (RFD) — For the first full week of December, it sure won’t have the feel of Christmas in Illinois.
A sunny and mild week is ahead and Chris Miller with the National Weather Service in Lincoln explains La Nina continues to strengthen, in so doing, this type of weather pattern we are experiencing is very much in line with a La Nina trend. Another driving force in these dry and mild conditions is the drought, which he points out can often ‘feed-off’ itself.
According to Miller, if you’re hoping for a white Christmas, that too is looking unlikely as warm and dry conditions are looking to persist into the first of the year. He notes though, hope is not all lost as there is always the possibility of an isolated snowfall.
