Here's the forecast for December based on the lunar phases. The information comes to us from Steve Gottschalk AKA The Caterpillar Man, who has been doing this research for 32 years.

    Here's what Steve came up with:

  • Dec. 2nd - warmer temperatures, rain or snow and wind.
  • Dec. 4-5th - colder temperatures, rain or snow and wind.
  • Dec. 11-12th - colder, rain or snow and wind.
  • Dec. 18th - colder, rain or snow and wind.
  • Dec. 21st - variable temperatures, rain or and wind.
  • Dec. 25th - colder, rain or snow and wind.
  • Dec. 31st - colder, rain or snow and wind.

There may also be something around the 7th but it wasn't showing up like the other dates. Just like the almanac makers of the olden days, I ask for a 24 hour leeway on either side of the above dates. Also based on the moon, we usually have a white Xmas 77% of the time when Xmas falls on the week of the full moon. The full moon is on Xmas Day this year.
