There’s a weather alert out for our area (North Central MA) for tonight, and covers upcoming stormy weather for Sunday/Monday. You can read the details yourself, but I did want to point out the following sentence in the National Weather Service Bulletin:
“THE RAIN MAY CHANGE TO FREEZING RAIN SOMETIME CHRISTMAS NIGHT AS THE COLD AIR OOZES SOUTHWARD.”
Oozes? Does cold air ooze? I had no idea. I have never seen this phraseology before today.
