Sunday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, folks. It’s a rainy day across Kentucky and we have a lot more rain to go through into the start of the new week. I wanted to drop by for a quick update on how the rest of the week unfolds as cold shots take aim at the region.

Rain ends Monday night and early Tuesday as chilly air continues. Frosty mornings a likely Wednesday and Thursday mornings as temps can make a run at the freezing mark.

The setup for next weekend has an interesting look to it with a system ejecting out of the southwest and a major blast of cold air diving in from the northwest…

That’s another healthy shot of rain with the GFS following it up with the first chance for some flakes…

Obviously, the chance for flakes are always low for this time of year, but it’s happened many times before, including multiple times this decade. We shall see about that.

The cold associated with that system is impressive, with the numbers sliding into the 20s for lows…

The last week of the month appears to be just itching for a major amplification, allowing for some big time cold to enter the country…

In the meantime, I have you all set to track the rainy rest of your Sunday…

Have a good one and take care.

Wet Weather Returns

Good Sunday, folks. It’s another wet weather maker rolling back into the bluegrass state and it has a tropical connection. This rain is from what’s left of Hurricane Sergio from the Pacific Ocean. As this passes through, another rain maker follows it up to star the week ahead that will also feature frosty cold mornings.

Let’s begin with the setup of today and roll forward. Numerous showers continue to push across the state from southwest to northeast. Locally heavy downpours are possible and I can’t rule out a little rumble of thunder…

The setup for Monday will feature a slow-moving front draped across the region with a wave of low pressure along it. The end result will be chilly rains north of the boundary with a few storms south of it…

That same setup later in November or December would be a big snow and ice maker across this region. Even though it’s only the middle of October, it’s still producing early season snows way far south in the plains states…

Once leftover showers move way on Tuesday, the first hard frost of the season is waiting in the wings for Wednesday and/or Thursday mornings. Below freezing temps are possible for lows…

Another big system will then roll our way by next weekend, bringing an increase in rain and the potential for Ohio Valley flakes behind it…

Even colder air follows that one up, with a likely visit from Mr. Freeze…

This is some cold stuff showing up  on the Ensembles…

The pattern is ripe for a MAJOR amplification and storm system for the final week of October.

I may throw you another update later today. On Monday, I have some new winter models to throw your way. B to the RR 😉

Have a great Sunday and take care.
