Saturday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. It’s a rather bumpy Saturday with rounds of showers and storms rolling across the state. It’s not the typical opening day for December, but nothing about our weather pattern is anything close to typical anymore.

Strong storms continue to push across the state and I will get you the tracking tools in a bit. First, let’s talk about the upcoming change back to winter.

After a very windy and nice Sunday, temps begin to fall on Monday as a cold front moves in. That front may touch off a shower or two in the afternoon, with a few flakes flying Monday night. Periods of light snow and snow showers will then settle in for Tuesday and Wednesday…

Some light accumulations are possible as cold air takes control of the pattern, once again.

Keep an eye on late Thursday or Thursday night for a possible light snow maker. That’s been showing up more and more of late, but I’m not quite sold on it yet.

The potential storm system for the weekend continues to show up well on the models. This is a signal I’ve been talking about for about a week, now. While the models have a fairly significant storm, they differ on exactly what to do with it.

The European Model continues to show a healthy snow hit…

The new version of the GFS has a similar look…

The GFS shows a different solution with each run, but that’s to be expected from this far out. The latest run is the farthest north of all the models…

The Ensembles are more in line with the operational European. These maps are for the next two weeks with our storm potential right in the middle of that time…

I will get more into this later tonight.  As usual, I have you all set to track the weather for the rest of the day…
