Wednesday Evening Update

Good Evening, everyone. Much needed rains continue to press to the east of the state, leaving behind a general 1″-4″ of rains. Now comes the seasonally cold temperatures and the increasing risk for some winter weather.

Temps for the next few days will be about where we should be to open up the month of December. At some point, a rain or snow shower may come calling with the best chance in the northeast. The GFS shows where it thinks a few flakes are possible through Friday…

The next system will come at us in two waves. The first arrives Saturday night into Sunday with some light precipitation. This could start out in the form of some rain, sleet or snow. The GFS gives much of the state a chance at seeing the mix…

The main part of the storm will then come at us late Monday into Tuesday. That should bring another round of heavy rains…

A true arctic front will likely follow that up by late Wednesday into Thursday. This will likely be accompanied by a big storm system, with a secondary low trying to develop somewhere along that boundary as it swings through here.

The Canadian goes wild with that setup…

For fun, here’s the snowfall forecast from that particular run…

The chances for snow will be figured out as we get closer, but the amount of arctic air diving into the country is impressive…

Overall, the very cold signal continues to show up on the Ensembles for December. Watch out the air across the country has a direct pipeline to Alaska…

Have a great evening and take care.
