A Lot Of Wind This Weekend

Good evening, folks. It’s another big wind maker rolling into the region this weekend and it could cause a few mores issues Saturday. Behind all this comes a few days of arctic air that will carry is into the first half of next week.

As our cold front moves in Saturday, a line of showers and some thunder will be possible. Winds may gust to 50mph or a little greater. The models are seeing more and more of this potential…

Hi Res NAM

Euro

That can cause some damage for a second straight Saturday.

The temp plunge behind this system continues to look pretty awesome if you are into that kind of thing. Cold temps and gusty winds will make for some brutal wind chills from Sunday through Tuesday…

That kind of cold without snow is just wrong!!

The cold will ease a bit by the second half of the week as another storm system rolls through the region. That should unleash more cold behind it…

Enjoy the evening and take care.

    I guess The Lows that bring the storms are just bullies. Push The cold out of its way to make way for the rain. After it goes by the cold will come right back in after the big bully moves on out. The cold is a big chicken if you ask me…It won’t stand its ground and let snow play in this area

      Chilly, but it isn’t impressive by January standards whatsoever. I am still forecasted in the low 30s for highs and mid 10s for lows, but only 3 days and then above average yet again after next Thursday.

    Barring any major changes, it appears Kentucky and Tennessee will dodge the upcoming freezing rain events. Looks like it will mostly stay north of the Ohio River, but parts of Missouri, Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma could have a few areas of more crippling ice. Little wonder why even many winter fans don’t like freezing rain.

    The anniversaries of both the 1994 and 2009 ice storms will occur within the next few weeks.

    Oh, average temperatures are starting to climb as were getting into late January (much like average temperatures starting to fall in late July).

      That 1994 January storm was something else in Harlan. It started out as freezing rain but didn’t get too severe with the pure ice here like it did just to my south in Knoxville as it changed over to heavy sleet, then snow quicker than to my south and other areas in KY. Still, it was super damaging/dangerous, however, as the weight of the freezing rain was underneath a foot of wet snow with numerous trees/power lines destroyed! I was only 11, but remember it well. The snowflakes for about 3 hours straight were as big as half dollars before the storm ended with most of the snow falling in less than 6 hrs!

        I experienced the 2009 ice event in Evansville IN. As bad as it was there, I only briefly lost power. Things were far worse in Madisonville KY, as even long after the ice melted the tree damage was so prevalent as I would p`a`s`s through Madisonville to visit family in Tennessee.

        My (future) wife experienced 1994 as a kid in Bowling Green, no power for days. Nashville, Memphis, northern Mississippi, etc, were also very hard hit.

      That’s fancy talk for snow ain’t looking too good this winter.

    No snow for no ice = Fair deal.

    The theme of Winter for the last 3 plus years in the Ohio Valley. Warm/wet then cold/dry.

      I am about over it. Yes it COULD still snow even up into April but this is another lame @$$ winter. I have new and ridiculous winter growth on my palms and simply not interest in cold without snow. They would probably be fine this weekend and early next week with just 10s for lows uncovered, but I don’t want to damage my early season growth, without covering them would result in a risk I am not willing to take until they get larger and more well established.

      • Jimbo says:

        I would just soon keep the 50 degree highs instead of snowless cold. I am just ready for this miserable Winter to go away. This year is actually a “WINO” Winter in name only.

    To the snow lovers out there, It doesn’t look good for the remainder of this month and and the beginning of Feburary… Yes it’s gonna be cold for a few days then it warms up for you got it rain! Cold comes in behind it it stays cold a few days and rinse and repeat this through mid feburary.. I do see a really huge storm coming up here soon and guess what it i’ll be rain, what else is new… On to spring!!! I’m already tired of this!
