Tracking Showers and Watching Next Week

Good Friday, everyone. The blog continues to experience some difficulties with posts showing up on the main page. They are going through via a direct twitter link, but that’s about it. I hope to have this issue resolved, but you can kindly pass the link along to others who may not do twitter. 🙂

We have a chilly shower maker pushing through today. It’s not a lot of rain by any means and this will be out of here by evening.

Here are your tracking toys…

The weather for the weekend continues to look pretty good as we wait for the next system early next week. Here are some things to watch for:

  • Rain develops Sunday night and continues through Monday. Locally heavy rains are a good bet.
  • Temps ahead of our arctic front can spike close to 60 degrees on Monday, then come crashing down from west to east Monday night into Tuesday. Many areas likely fall below freezing by Tuesday afternoon.
  • As the arctic front moves through, we will need to watch for a wave of low pressure to develop along it. If this happens, a band of accumulating snow will be possible.
  • Once this moves away early Wednesday, watch for a sneaky system from the northwest. This could deliver some light snows in the arctic air.
  • That arctic air may keep highs in the 20s for both Wednesday and Thursday. Lows can reach deep into the teens with wind chills even colder.

The GFS continues to grow more adamant about the wave of low pressure idea…

The GFS Ensembles have really been touting this potential for several runs and the latest keeps the trend going…

The Canadian Model is starting to show this possibility, too…

The Canadian then sees that possible second system on Wednesday…

The European Model is usually wound up with a big storm in this type of a setup, but it’s pretty progressive without the wave on the front…

No matter which model is right, if any, that’s some big time cold coming behind that. This cold ain’t fooling around on the GFS Ensembles into the lead up to Christmas…

Throw in an active southern storm stream and things may get interesting.

I will have updates later today, so check back. Have a good one and take care.

    If the waves develops it looks like E. KY has the best potential for snowfall.
