Chilly Changes Late Next Week

Good Thursday, folks. We continue with our string of toasty late summer days, but a chilly change is on the way as we head into next week. The timing on this is perfect as we flip the calendar from September to October. Let’s do this, fall!

Highs today are in the low and middle 80s for many, with just a slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm going up…

The forecast for Friday through the weekend remains pretty much the same. It’s toasty, with a pop up shower or storm going up.

Hurricane Maria continues to plow through the Caribbean…

This is another historic hurricane that may wind up threatening the Carolinas by early next week. Here’s the latest track forecast from the National Hurricane Center…

Jose continues to meander off the northeastern coast, weakening over colder waters…

A much colder look takes shape for the second half of next week as a fall cold front arrives in our region. This front may have a nice round of showers and thunderstorms ahead of it, but the chilly air coming in behind it will steal the weather show.

As I’ve been talking about for the past several weeks, the potential is there for an early season frost across our part of the world. This type of a cold shot could certainly do the trick…

Make it a great day and take care.

    This late summer pattern is getting old and boring. My reason for our current weather is Tropical depression Jose, which is now currently nearly stationary just off the coast of Cape Cod. This creates stagnant high pressure over the Ohio river valley. Not unusual, as we our entering our dry season. Hurricane Maria, now looks to follow Jose, and if she becomes stationary, our summer will continue. Depending, on what the Bermuda High does, if the high stays in place, or builds back west. If it builds west, before Hurricane Maria, the coastal areas could take the landfall. Ever wonder what happens to the left over energy from spent tropical storms, well here’s a theory of mine, the energy moves around the Bermuda high and when it gets close to the energy coming off the African coast the two pieces of energy combine and become a new tropical storm and eventually a hurricane. Remember, ” Energy can neither be created or destroyed. “

    This summer pattern isn’t the only thing that is getting old and boring.

    Chris bring on fall remember not long ago we has snow for Halloween could it be this year well I am sure we will at least have frost by then? Where is Rollo Bubba g and the winter crew?

    • BubbaG says:

      I think Rollo might have packed up his goats and went away. Not sure he posted any last year. Nothing to post though last year, since I do believe the lowest snow on record for most CB areas. Ironic considering the two years prior in a row- three mega snows.

    I See you 540 thickness. Come on, just a little farther south. Yeah yeah, too early in the season… But one can hope right?

    Ralph, keep it up it’s funny LOL LOL LOL !!!!

  7. Schroeder says:

    If Hurricane Maria happens to make landfall on the outer banks of North Carolina as a category one,this could bring heavy rains towards Kentucky. This, would be a rare event with the wind and moisture coming off the Atlantic. Again, another hurricane, where the path cannot be determined, because the ” super computers are too slow. “

  8. Mike S says:

    On this date late night in 1989, Hurricane Hugo makes landfall at Sullivan’s Island, SC, a few days after slamming Puerto Rico. Still not thinking Maria will follow the same path, but stranger things have happened.

    A heat advisory for Minneapolis-St. Paul on the first day of autumn. Now I find that quite funny.
