Saturday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. High winds continue to push across the region as arctic air surges in from the northwest, setting the stage for a very cold few days ahead. Looking down the road, the late week storm system continues to track farther southeast.

Many areas have had wind gusts of 40mph with a few spots topping out at greater than 50mph. These gusts will continue until our cold front drops in this evening, then the winds finally begin to some down some. That’s also when our temps crash and that may lead to a couple of snowflakes flying around. The Hi Res NAM is showing this…

Here are your radars to follow the action…

The temp plunge is pretty prolific with many areas in the upper teens by Sunday morning. Wind chills over the next few days continue to show up on the frigid side…

An upper level system dives southward into the region late Monday and early Tuesday. This may have enough moisture to spit out some flakes, especially across the west.

The trend on the late week storm continues to focus farther south with each model run. The Euro has rain and some snow showing up…

So does the Canadian…

The GFS is also seeing this now…

Finally, there’s a little something to track for winter weather lovers! 🙂

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

    Thanks Chris. Would be nice to see some snow. Our daughter got about ‘7 inches last night outside of Detroit. I told her to send it our way and she said she wished she could. (How can this be my child!). Anyway, the cold at least reminds us it’s winter a d maybe will keep plan
    Ya from coming out too early. Have a great.
    Evening evedryone.

    Boy that is losey. We will will have to track the possibility of rain to flurries next weekend. I have a feeling some of the winter only posters like Jimbo may tune out early this year if something doesn’t change by mid February. I lucked up in Harlan with only a fraction more snow than last year but over half of the population on here in KY and bordering counties of other states has less-to-date than last season for total snow. Terrible winter 🙁

        We have have resorted on tracking the possibilities of backside flurries??? I would just say sorry guys there’s just nothing to track of any consequence when it comes to snow.

    • Jimbo says:

      This Winter has been so dreadful, we are searching for flurries to track. I suppose it will a big event if anybody sees any.

        I honestly don’t think this brief cold spell would be enough to do much damage to my palms but they are covered as I dont want my new winter (err Spring?) growth killed back. Maybe, three nights in the upper 10s to 20 will kill back some on my gr@$$…if not, I want make it to March this year without mowing…it is getting high in spots already 😛

    See green, change the screen! It’s not snowing people

    Today our neighbors yard was full of robins. It’s been so warm even they are confused. We don’t usually see them here until March.

      They’ve been around my house since we moved here in Oct., a lot of them! Today my whole back deck was literally covered in cardinals. I’ve always got a lot, but it looked like a dang convention! My grandpa used to always say that meant snow was on it’s way-and he was usually right, but I can’t say that anymore!

      • Terry says:

        It is so bad, I think one can easily see the tension on the blog as three years without almost 0 snow is waxing us all thin, LOL. Everyone is complaining…those who want or expect at least a little snow are complaining. Then those who are tired of us complaining are complaining. I honestly come here more lately for the comment entertainment and less for the weather, lol. 😛

        • Jimbo says:

          Yeah, you already know what the weather is when you get here. There is just nothing to look forward to in this pattern if you are a fan of snow.

    Only thing to track is when the next warmup will be..Canada looks like a dumpster fire.
