Wednesday Evening Update

Good evening, everyone. We continue to see rounds of rain slowly winding down across the eastern half of the state, with a brief drying trend coming in behind this. From there, it’s full steam ahead toward an even stronger system moving in for the weekend.

Several counties are still under flood warnings. Here’s a look at the warnings and the current radar…

Dry air moves in tonight into Thursday, but the next round of rain arrives in the south and southeast Thursday night into Friday morning. That will bring a renewed threat for high water in those areas.  That rain then spreads to the north as our potent plains storm system comes together. Rounds of thunderstorms then kick in Friday night into Saturday as warm air surges in. That warm and unstable air will then crank up strong to severe thunderstorms later Saturday into Saturday night.

All of this action is likely to drop a lot of rain on the region. The numbers from the Euro continue to be scary…

That would be more than enough to produce widespread, significant flooding issues.

This is also going to be a super windy storm that can cause wind damage, even without thunderstorms. Trees will be especially susceptible since the ground is so wet.

We need to change this pattern around and we need to do it in a hurry. Luckily, there is a strong indication for that to happen next week and into March. It’s a much colder look taking hold next week into the following weekend. The Euro has arctic air invading…

Wind chills

The model even tries to throw down some snow to start March…

This cold look ahs been advertised by the Ensembles for quite a while now and they continue to look cold…
