Friday Evening Thoughts

Good evening, everyone. We are rolling into the weekend with a colder brand of air surging in here and that’s bringing a drying trend. That doesn’t last long as another big storm system gets ready to move in here for the close of 2018. That brings a lot of ugly weather back in here.

This system is looking potent with heavy rain, strong storms and high winds… Again. This is another monster…

Rainfall of 1″-3″ will be possible, leading to the potential for flooding. A few of the storms may even be on the strong or locally severe side.

With or without storms, high winds look to become an issue again. The European Model has winds nearing 60mph…

Happy New Year! Ugh.

Much colder air comes in behind that with our next storm system developing and working our way by Thursday and Friday. The models are still correcting this thing farther west.

GFS

New version of the GFS

This active pattern looks to continue as the pattern skews colder through the first 2 weeks of January. The European Ensembles see the snow chances…

The control run is very active…

As always, we shall see.

Enjoy your evening and take care.

Friday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, folks. My time is short, so this won’t be the longest update in the world, Heavy rain is pulling out of southeastern Kentucky as colder air blows in from the west. That colder air settles in to start the weekend, but another big rain event is on the way to end it and the year.

Track the rain out of the state…

That next system produces heavy rain, wind and maybe another rumble of thunder Sunday night through New Year’s Eve. Rainfall totals of 1″-3″ will be possible, leading to a renewed flood threat…

Cold air surges in behind that to kick off 2019, but another southern storm system will develop and could impact our weather later Wednesday or Thursday.

The GFS is seeing it better…

So does the new version…

The Canadian overwhelms it with cold and keeps it southeast…

The ICON says “let’s play ball”…

I will hook you up with another update this evening. Have a good one and take care.
