Clipper Showers Start A Super Active Setup

Good Tuesday, everyone. We have a clipper system rolling into the region today, producing chilly showers from northwest to southeast. This is kicking off a super active of a setup with much bigger systems later this week and into Thanksgiving week. Can we get some winter weather out of these? Yes. Will we? We shall see.

Today’s showers increase quickly from northwest to southeast as the day wears on. This will bring the main band of rain across central and eastern parts of the state. If this were December, we would be talking about accumulating snows, but the air isn’t quite cold enough this go round. Still, I can rule out a stray flake or two, especially in the mountains.

Here are your radars to track today’s action…

Wednesday will find temps climbing with the low 60s in the west to the low 50s in the northeast. Will northeastern Kentucky be able to squeeze out a stray shower still.

The late week and weekend system continues to trend toward the direction I talked about in earlier posts. The models are starting to find common ground between the two earlier extreme solutions of the GFS and Euro.

The first system throws some showers at us later Thursday with heavier rains on Friday. The track of the low then produces rain and the possibility of winter weather on the northern and western side of the track. Exactly where that is remains to be seen.

Here’s the latest run of the GFS…

The Euro…

The ICON is also trying for a little winter, but it looks too wimpy with the overall system…

The GFS Ensembles are similar to earlier runs…

Looking ahead to the potential of a pre-Thanksgiving storm system, we find the European Model farther east with a potent looking low pressure Tuesday into Wednesday…

The Canadian Model isn’t as wound up in the Ohio Valley, instead going for a farther east bombogenesis…

Another potent system may try to follow that up at some point into the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

We have lots to track, my friends! Your usual updates come later today. Until then, have a great day and take care.

    Cold rain will be coming to your town in the near future.

    I agree. It’s a climatological thing. The unusual cold earlier last week allowed for some measurable snow. But, these weather systems coming at us just are not ready to deliver the ‘goods’. Maybe the end of the month or first part of December then.

    I enjoy the comments and the forecasts from Chris, but it seems like these ads are taking over and are a big distraction.
