Thursday Evening Update

Good evening, everyone. Our heavy rain and high wind maker is finally slowing down across the Commonwealth. As the storm system rolls away, much colder winds will blow into town for the start of the weekend and could bring a few more showers. This active pattern isn’t going anywhere, though. Another potent storm moves in early next week with some winter air behind it.

Temps are dropping from west to east as the steady rains pull off to the east and north. Backlash showers will be noted through tonight. Here are your November 1st tracking tools…

Leftover showers will be noted on Friday, especially across central and eastern Kentucky. This is where temps may struggle to get out of the upper 40s on a gusty northwesterly wind.

Saturday’s weather looks really good with temps in the 30s to start and 50s in the afternoon. Winds will be a little breezy with a mix of sun and clouds.

A few showers work in from west to east on Sunday, but the main show arrives just after that. Another big storm moves in late Monday into Tuesday. Heavy rain, strong storms and high winds are likely…

That could be a major wind maker. The European Model has some absolutely insane gusts showing up…

A much colder setup follows for much of the country with more and more winter weather showing up. For the first time, we have both the European Ensembles and GFS Ensembles showing snow chances getting into our region at some point in the next two weeks…

As we look farther down the weather road, I’ve been talking about true winter signals showing up later this month. If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you know my admiration for Dr. Judah Cohen and the work he does in terms of winter forecasting. He sent out a tweet this morning about seeing some of the same winter signals…

Make it a good one and take care.

November Begins With Heavy Rain and Gusty Winds

Good Thursday and welcome to November. Rounds of heavy rain and gusty winds continue to target much of the bluegrass state today. The rainfall numbers are way up there in many areas, with flooding already an issue. As the rains continue today, additional flooding problems arise. High winds area also getting into the mix.

Let’s start this out with a look at the Flood Watch that’s out…

Winds today are also going to be a major player. Those gusts may reach 40-50mph at times. With a  wet ground, some trees may be taken down and a few power issues may develop.

Here are your tracking tools for the day…

Much chillier winds will blow on Friday as a few more showers work across the region. Temps may struggle to get out of the 40s with the NAM being the coldest of the bunch…

Saturday is looking like a nice day with temps in the 30s to start and low 50s to end.

Clouds will quickly thicken on Sunday as temps bounce back ahead of another system working into our region. This will bring a band of showers from west to east late in the day.

The setup following that is for another potent storm system to develop and work into our region. This should bring rounds of heavy rain, a few storms and more gusty winds to the region from late Monday through Tuesday…

Much colder air comes in behind that for the rest of the week, with our winter look still showing up…

I will have another update or two later today, so check back. Make it a great start to November and take care.
