Tracking Our Wild Halloween Setup

Good Wednesday to one and all. Our Halloween Howler kicks off today with the first waves of rain and thunderstorms. From there, things get interesting for Halloween as temps plummet, potentially setting the stage for a snowflake or two by evening.

Let’s start with what’s going on today and roll forward. A few rounds of showers and thunderstorms will roll across the state, but it’s not raining the entire day. You will get some breaks in the action.

The severe weather outlook from the Storm Prediction Center only has a very low end risk across the south and southeast…

I will get to your tracking tools in a bit.

Gusty showers and thunderstorms will be with us tonight and into early on Halloween, but our monster of a storm system and cold front will soon take center stage. A more than 30 degree temp drop is likely during the daylight hours on Thursday as the front moves through. Central and eastern Kentucky will be in the 60s to near 70 in the morning with the west in the 30s. Temps then drop into the 30s from west to east during the day and then into the 20s Thursday night…

When we add the wind to the mix, you get some stupid cold wind chill numbers…

Ouch!

Can we get a few snowflakes to mix in at some point on Halloween? That’s, at least, a possibility for some. Here’s the Hi Res NAM…

The Canadian continues to have a little better coverage of flake potential…

Again, this would only be a few flakes if we get them.

This weekend finds another cold front dropping in, bringing reinforcing cold air. This is a very cold pattern developing for the new month and we will have to be on guard for clippers that can dig into the region, starting later next week. The models continue to sniff this potential out…

This is a setup that can bring accumulating snows at some point before Thanksgiving.

I will have additional updates later today, so check back. I leave you with your rain and storm tracking tools…

Make it a great day and take care.

    The weather is going to be crazy! I’m wondering if there are any updates on Coffeelady. I just knew I would see a comment from her!
