Friday Evening Update

Good evening and welcome to the weekend. It’s a cold start to the first weekend of November as temps couldn’t get out of the 40s for most areas. Scattered showers continue to be on the move, but our focus is quickly shifting to a big storm system early next week.

In the short-term, let’s track a few chilly showers…

A weak cold front moves through here on Sunday, bringing a few showers from west to east as the day wears on…

I have no changes on the big storm system moving in here late Monday into Tuesday. This will be a powerhouse of a storm that brings high winds and severe storms into the region.

The models are all over this storm…

Winds with this may be absolutely crazy. Gusts of 60mph or greater are possible Monday night and early Tuesday. The European Model has hurricane force wind gusts showing up…

That’s just absurd and would be enough to cause major wind damage without the help of true severe storms.

Colder air surges in behind that with another system set to pounce by Thursday and Friday. Many models have been giving us a chance at the first snowflakes on the backside of this system…

That’s a lot of VERY cold air coming in behind this system. Check out the low temps next weekend…

Have a great rest of your day and take care.

A Wild Look For Next Week

Good Friday, folks. We have chilly wind blowing up a few showers on this Friday, but the weekend will see a nice little break moving in. That break doesn’t last long as another huge storm system rolls our way early next week. That system should bring more heavy rain, high winds and potential severe storms our way. All of that may be followed by a more winter looking system.

Let us begin with this 2nd day of November. Lots of clouds will be noted with temps having a tough time getting out of the upper 40s for much of the region. A few showers may also flare up, but this shouldn’t be an all day thing…

Saturday starts in the 30s and ends in the 50s with a mix of sun and clouds. Those clouds continue to thicken on Sunday with showers moving from west to east across the state, especially later in the day.

This brings us to what could very well become a severe weather outbreak for areas from the Mississippi Valley to the Appalachian Mountains Monday into Tuesday. A negatively tilted trough will be swinging our of the plains toward the Great Lakes during this time. That should form one heck of a low pressure that may rapidly intensify along the way. Severe thunderstorms and high winds may become an issue during this time.

For our region, Monday night into Tuesday appears to be the prime time for the worst of the weather. Here’s the initial area I’m highlighting…

Watch how strong this low gets as it bombs out as it moves into the northern Ohio Valley and Great Lakes…

Even without true severe storms, the winds may be enough to cause damage. While it’s still early in the game, this one passes the look test.

Much colder air follows that system with a different looking system possibly showing up by the end of the week…

Back in October, I wrote how I thought this November would bring us severe weather and snow and I see no reason why this pattern can’t deliver that. As always, we shall see.

I will have updates later today. Have a good one and take care.
