November Begins With Heavy Rain and Gusty Winds

Good Thursday and welcome to November. Rounds of heavy rain and gusty winds continue to target much of the bluegrass state today. The rainfall numbers are way up there in many areas, with flooding already an issue. As the rains continue today, additional flooding problems arise. High winds area also getting into the mix.

Let’s start this out with a look at the Flood Watch that’s out…

Winds today are also going to be a major player. Those gusts may reach 40-50mph at times. With a  wet ground, some trees may be taken down and a few power issues may develop.

Here are your tracking tools for the day…

Much chillier winds will blow on Friday as a few more showers work across the region. Temps may struggle to get out of the 40s with the NAM being the coldest of the bunch…

Saturday is looking like a nice day with temps in the 30s to start and low 50s to end.

Clouds will quickly thicken on Sunday as temps bounce back ahead of another system working into our region. This will bring a band of showers from west to east late in the day.

The setup following that is for another potent storm system to develop and work into our region. This should bring rounds of heavy rain, a few storms and more gusty winds to the region from late Monday through Tuesday…

Much colder air comes in behind that for the rest of the week, with our winter look still showing up…

I will have another update or two later today, so check back. Make it a great start to November and take care.

    Looks like mainly all bark and no bite so far for Richmond on south. Most of the system flow was/is more north and due east. Good miss 🙂

    We may have had lot of rain here in western,ky, just glad we didn’t have the storms like down south are experiencing. It will be interesting to see if this wet pattern will keep going into the winter months.If so it could be a long winter.

    The rain, sometimes heavy here in central Kentucky started about three hours ago. Very little wind so far and I expect the front will move in sometime tonight hopefully with more normal temperatures. This mornings low temperature was a balmy sixty eight degrees. Way to warm for the first of November. Yesterday was partly cloudy to cloudy and the high was almost eighty degrees. I guess we could call that our Indian Summer ? I think I have a pretty good idea as to how the rest of our Autumn and Winter will turn out after studying many meteorological maps and ocean’s sea surface temperatures.

      It is pretty windy out there, maybe go outside. No, this is not Indian Summer. And no one knows how the next 4 months will play out weather wise,

    • Troy says:

      I’ve seen a high temperature of near 80° in both December and January (yes, right here in Kentucky)…was that Indian Summer as well?

      • prelude says:

        Please Schroeder do tell how the rest of Autumn and Winter will play out since you have it all figured out.

        • Schroeder says:

          Prelude: Do you really want to discuss long range weather forecasting with me ? If so I would enjoy it. Everyone on this blog has their own forecast as to what the rest of Autumn and the following Winter will bring. Discussing this topic among other commentator would be interesting to me also.

      • Schroeder says:

        I don’t know Troy. Look it up. I was always taught that Indian Summer was a period of above normal temperatures after the first freeze didn’t give the length or how long it lasted.

        • Linus says:

          An Indian summer is a period of unseasonably warm, DRY weather that sometimes occurs in autumn in the Northern Hemisphere.

          • Schroeder says:

            Well, It was dry at my place here yesterday and the temperature was close to eighty degrees. Indian Summer. And I learned that Indian Summer can occur through November and December.

            • Jeff K says:

              Schroeder there is typically a day of warmer temperatures before a cold front comes through. It happens any time of the year. One day does not mean an Indian Summer and in no other weather website was yesterday labeled an Indian summer. Just because you keep saying it over and over again doesn’t make you right, but you have your own definition for it just so you think you’re right.

            • Linus says:

              Needs to be several warm, dry days. Not one day as warm air is pooling in front of a large frontal system.

  4. Mike S says:

    Winds here in Valley Station are beginning to increase, gusts approaching 40 mph at times. Before this, the winds were relatively tame over the last 24 hours.

  5. Schroeder says:

    Looks like the front is beginning to move through central Kentucky from the southwest as the winds have increase and the rain is decreasing in area coverage. Average temperatures behind the front due to it’s Pacific Characteristics. Just read that an EF1 tornado touch down last evening in Rineyville, Kentucky. Some damage to roofs and trees, but no one was injured.

  6. Terry says:

    October finished average for rain way down in SE KY with just a little over 3 inches at my house. Still, I am not far from 60 inches year-to-date and may have that by next week if the storm systems quit going as far west as they have been lately.

    Reading elsewhere CanSips showing a back loaded winter..Maybe a few shots in Dec..Interesting Feb. with a stout -NAO..Of course it’s long long long range modeling but still interesting to follow
