Changes For The Week Ahead

Good Sunday, everyone. It’s been a calm and seasonally chilly weekend across Kentucky, but things are looking to change with the new week. The action is going to pick up as we track a few week systems to start the week and a bigger system to end it. This looks to lead us into a wintry pattern for Thanksgiving week.

Our Sunday is pretty decent, so get out and enjoy.

The clouds you see increasing today are ahead of a couple of systems diving in from the northwest Monday and Tuesday. Those systems won’t have a lot of moisture to work with but could touch off a rain or snow shower, especially Monday night and early Tuesday.

The American models seem to be struggling to see these systems. Notice the difference between the NAM…

And the Euro…

This air really isn’t that cold and, given the nature of these systems, we would see quite the temp spread across the state.

Temps by the middle of the week may actually feel pretty good as we wait on the late week system. Once again, we are finding the models trying to figure out what happens with that system and the one behind it for next weekend.  The one next weekend has the most potential for some winter weather. The Euro keeps showing our possibility…

Here’s the current Canadian…

The GFS Ensembles average 7 day 500mb mean anomalies show a colder than normal and likely stormy pattern from Thanksgiving week into the first couple days of December…

I’ll have another update late this afternoon or evening, so check back. Make it a good one and take care.

    Just looks like a typical November with ups and down temperatures. Now just waiting on those chilly dark cloudy days that are damp and dreary and very depressing.

    Congrats to Lexington Mesonet, one of the warmest spots in Kentucky again. At 7:00 this morning, the low temperature has been 28 (29 now at 7:20). BG airport low has been 27 (28 now).
    Louisville heat island officially at 29 degrees as of 7:00 this morning.
    Our Bowman Field just down the road at 26. It looks like those ‘russians’ are at it again.

    Well we had one decent snow and I’m satisfied with that. I don’t like the trending towards warmer and drier through this coming week would rather it stayed cold for more than two days with some training snowstorms in the four inch range, but we would have to be in a weak El nino for that to happen. Whatever happens we will just have to except it. It is not panning out like it was fifty years ago.

      Twenty five degrees in my backyard right at this very moment. On the Mesonet the low was twenty four degrees recorded earlier this morning. Radiational cooling working well this Autumn.

    Okay mets let’s get something straight. “Cold” is 49 to 35. “Freezing” is 35 to 25. “Frigid” is anything below 25. Notice that the word “chilly” is not listed. 20 degrees isn’t CHILLY!!!!! 30 to 40 degrees isn’t CHILLY. CHILLY is 50 to 60. I hate the cold and listening to the on-air mets this morning saying it’s chilly outside this morning gets my feathers ruffled. It’s 20 freaking degrees outside!!!! ARGHHHHHH. Thanks for listening.

    According to my phone, Richmond was at 23 this morning.

    Only good thing about it being cold is no bugs to bother you. I was raised in the country and as a kid I learned real fast about yellow jackets and red wasps and every other bug and snakes. You can’t walk through a field without getting Deer tick all over you. And you better watch what to avoid going though the woods. I hardly ever wore a shirt or shoes when I was young. I could run down a gravel driveway with no problem. But I did get poison ivy between my toes one time and just about rubbed the skin off of them scratching them. Drove me crazy. Have a good lords day.
