Thursday Evening Update

Good evening, everyone. Our heavy rain and high wind maker is finally slowing down across the Commonwealth. As the storm system rolls away, much colder winds will blow into town for the start of the weekend and could bring a few more showers. This active pattern isn’t going anywhere, though. Another potent storm moves in early next week with some winter air behind it.

Temps are dropping from west to east as the steady rains pull off to the east and north. Backlash showers will be noted through tonight. Here are your November 1st tracking tools…

Leftover showers will be noted on Friday, especially across central and eastern Kentucky. This is where temps may struggle to get out of the upper 40s on a gusty northwesterly wind.

Saturday’s weather looks really good with temps in the 30s to start and 50s in the afternoon. Winds will be a little breezy with a mix of sun and clouds.

A few showers work in from west to east on Sunday, but the main show arrives just after that. Another big storm moves in late Monday into Tuesday. Heavy rain, strong storms and high winds are likely…

That could be a major wind maker. The European Model has some absolutely insane gusts showing up…

A much colder setup follows for much of the country with more and more winter weather showing up. For the first time, we have both the European Ensembles and GFS Ensembles showing snow chances getting into our region at some point in the next two weeks…



As we look farther down the weather road, I’ve been talking about true winter signals showing up later this month. If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you know my admiration for Dr. Judah Cohen and the work he does in terms of winter forecasting. He sent out a tweet this morning about seeing some of the same winter signals…

Make it a good one and take care.

    I tell you, the Euro did excellent for the rainfall with this storm. I honestly thought SE KY would have at least hit half an inch but I have a whopping 0.04 total through 7:50PM…lol.☺ I will give credit where credit is due as the EURO was awesome this time….better be awesome later this winter too☺.hehe

    Yes, I’m familiar with Dr. Cohen’s views. I post the AER (Atmospheric and Environmental Research) website on my blog. He talks a lot about the Arctic Oscillation and North Atlantic Oscillation.
