Saturday Evening Post

Good evening, folks. As expected, it’s been another soaker of a day across many areas, with several spots picking up 1″-2″ on the day, so far. Lexington has a chance at breaking another daily rainfall record before the stroke of midnight. Shocker! 😉

As we focus on the future,  the end of the week storm continues to look very interesting as it shows up stronger and stronger on the forecast models.

The GFS has a major storm that deepens into a monster low, bringing rain, wind and snow to our region from Thursday through early Saturday…

The new version of the GFS is also showing a monster storm, with a slightly farther east track and has our second system showing up behind it later in the weekend…

The European Model is a bit weaker with the storm, but still has a widespread powerhouse of a storm…

The same model then brings a lighter system across the region late Sunday into early Christmas Eve Day…

At the end of the run, you can see another storm system starting to develop on Christmas morning…

The Canadian Model doesn’t have nearly as big of a storm for Thursday and Friday, but does show the second system over the weekend…

It also shows the Christmas Eve system…

Interesting times ahead and it should make for a lot of fun tracking it all as we roll closer and closer to Christmas.

I leave you with your evening rain tracking toys…

Make it a good one and take care.

    If we received all the snow that the models forecast 5 days out we would probably had 3 feet last year and about 10″ so far this year I don’t start getting excited till its about 24 to 36 hours away.

    Just models… just models… not a forecast… There are probably other models that show NO snow… I won’t get excited until they are 48 hours or so. Having said that we are out of town (out of the country) over the Christmas fortnight so, not really relevant to me.
