Thursday Evening Update

Good Thursday evening, folks. We have a hard freeze on the way for the weekend, but the weather for the following week is looking more interesting. We have a few systems set to impact the region, with the potential for a much bigger storm by the end of the week.

An upper level system is moving in here late Sunday and Monday…

gfs-5

That can deliver some clouds and a shower or two during this time.

A bigger system dives in here late Tuesday into Wednesday…

gfs-4

That should give us a better threat for some showers to go along with seasonally chilly temps.

The system following that up for the end of the week into next weekend continues to look much bigger. The models all show a potent storm system sweeping across the country, with the potential for winter weather behind it…

Yes, several models suggest snowflakes with a setup like that…

Don’t take that as anything but what it’s meant to show… the models depicting the possibility of the first snowflakes.

The cold air is impressive…

Tis the season! I will update all that later tonight. Make it a good evening and take care.

Freezing Temps Move In

Good Thursday, everyone. Many areas are waking up to frost and, in a few cases, freezing temperatures. This is a sign of things to come as we have a hard freeze on the way for the coming weekend. That’s when our temperatures should be able to drop fairly deep into the 20s.

Highs today will be near 60 in the west with mid to upper 50s elsewhere. Skies stay sunny.

Veterans Day looks very windy, but nice with 30s to start and upper 50s for highs. Those winds are ahead of a push of colder air for the weekend. Lows by Saturday morning drop into the upper 20s into central and northern Kentucky…

Saturday’s highs will be in the upper 40s in the east to the mid 50s in the far west. A widespread freeze takes place Saturday night into Sunday morning…

This is where we find a disturbance in the weather force. The Canadian and European Models both develop a small cutoff low across the region later Sunday into Monday. This could produce some clouds and scattered showers, and keep temps on the pretty chilly side of things.

The Canadian…

There’s a chance that system starts showing up a little stronger on the models in the next few days.

A much bigger storm will roll across the country by the end of next week and I will talk more about that system later today.

I leave you with the 2 week snowfall forecast from individual members of the GFS Ensembles…

You can see how a nice split showing up with half showing a chance of snow during that time and the other half saying not so fast.

Enjoy your day and take care.
