Monday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. Heavy rain is finally winding down, but a few showers look to remain in the far east through Tuesday. To boot, mother nature is also giving us some very chilly… make that CHILI temps. 🙂 I’ve got even colder air on the way for the weekend and we are facing a legit frost threat.

As crazy as this sounds, much of Kentucky is near normal or above normal on rainfall for Meteorological Fall which started on September 1st. This coming after the September became the driest month on record for many areas with barely a few drops of rain.

The rainfall numbers from the Kentucky Mesonet sites match up very well with the forecast we had out…

Additional showers continue tonight into Tuesday across far southeastern and far eastern parts of the state. Here’s regional radar to track the action…

Temps today couldn’t get out of the 50s for many areas of central and eastern Kentucky. As skies clear tonight, lows will tank and we could see some upper 30s in the colder valleys of central and western parts of the state…

A few clouds will be noted as we head into the middle of the week as temps return to the low and mid 70s. There’s even the chance for a shower or two.

Friday looks like a very awesome day for wild weather loves. A major storm will be rolling across the northern plains and it will drag a cold front into our region. Gusty winds and a few showers and storms will be associated with this boundary…

Temps will be deep into the 70s ahead of this front Friday afternoon, then tumble very quickly as the front moves in. Some upper 30s will show up by Saturday morning. That sets the stage for a frost threat Monday night.

This same storm system is likely to bring a punishing snowstorm from the Rockies to the northern plains…

Road trip? 🙂

The pattern next week is likely to feature a huge upper low closing off across the eastern half of the country…

That looks a lot like a winter time setup to be honest. Just like you would expect in winter, it develops a couple of storm systems riding up from the south. The first arrives Tuesday on the European Model…

The second one shows up a few days later…

I’ll take that same look in the winter months and be happy with it.

Enjoy the evening and take care.

    I’ll take that setup in the winter months but the problem with that setup is its happening now. Just watch when December January February and early March roll on in that pattern will be nowhere to be found.
