A Few More Storms Today

Good Thursday, everyone. Your friendly weatherdude continues to sound like the proverbial broken record, but let’s put all the blame on Mother Nature. She’s the one bringing the rounds of showers and storms our way, with more on the way for the foreseeable future.

In other news… Blah. 🙂

Today’s action will be more concentrated across the southern half of the state than the north. Just like every day for the past few months, any storm that goes up may put down every heavy rain.

Storms may become a little more widespread on Friday as we see another upper level system working in here for the weekend. Notice how this closes off right on top of us…

That leads to some on again off again showers and storms through next week…

This is a continuation of our wetter than normal year, with this likely taking us through the rest of the month and into September. Check out how much of the country will be experiencing above normal precipitation during this time…

There’s a lot of back and forth in the temperatures, with toasty shots battling it out with cool shots. One such cool shot is showing up on the Ensembles next weekend…

I leave you with your daily dose of storm tracking tools…

Make it a great day and take care.

Wet Weather Continues

Good Wednesday, weather weenies. A potent system continues to press across the region, keeping the  wet weather into the middle and end of the week. From here, we watch for another system to impact us through the weekend and into early next week.

The showers and storms out can still be on the strong side with the potential for a local severe wind gust. Watch for locally heavy rains today that can put down enough rain to cause a few high water issues…

Additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms will likely hang around into Thursday and Friday. Each round may contain very heavy rainfall, with additional, local high water issues possible.

As we roll into the weekend another system is likely to have a big impact on our weather. As I’ve mentioned for several days now, another upper level system may slowly move across the Ohio Valley, bringing more in the way of very wet weather. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms look to be on the increase once again…

Heavy rainfall will once again be the main threat, as we continue to be on guard for local high water issues. This is a very abnormal pattern for early August, but it fits the overall pattern for the entire year.

Have a great day and take care.

Strong Storms Possible Today

Good Tuesday, everyone. We have a system rumbling into town from the northwest, bringing the potential for a few strong thunderstorms. These boomers may also unleash some locally heavy rains. Yippee!

Some of the stronger storms may bring high winds and a touch of hail. Here’s the latest Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

As mentioned, these storms may also put down a lot of rain in some areas. We will need to watch area creeks and streams for some, at least, local high water issues.

Additional showers and storms hang around into Wednesday as our system presses slowly through. This will help knock the temps down for the end of the week, with the likelihood for another system to bring more showers and storms into the weekend. A lot of rain may fall over the next week.

We will get into all that over the next few days. For now, I have you all set to do some Tuesday storm tracking…

Active Setup Starts The Week

Good Monday to one and all. We have a potent system dropping into the region from the northwest this week. That bad boy will touch off some pretty healthy showers and thunderstorms across our neck of the woods.

Highs today are still pretty seasonal with high humidity levels bringing a bit of an uncomfortable factor to the mix. Scattered showers and storms will develop, especially this afternoon into the evening…

The storms rolling in here on Tuesday may be strong or locally severe. Here’s the latest Severe Weather Outlook from the SPC…

Scattered showers and storms will then carry us into Wednesday as temps come down several degrees. There’s a chance we get a return of some, at least, scattered showers and storms later this week into the coming weekend…

 

That would help in keeping our temps in check. Speaking of keeping the temps in check, the European Weeklies continue to do just that through the middle of September…

That’s a lot of real estate across the country with below normal temps. Of course, that does NOT mean you can’t get some toasty days in there… You will. It just means the average temp between now and the middle of September may average a little below normal. That’s fine by me… It’s almost football time! 🙂

Make it a great day and take care.

Storms To Increase In The Days Ahead

Good Sunday, folks. We are wrapping up the first weekend of August with some typical steam in the air and a few storms on the move. The stormy times will ramp it up in the days ahead. I’ll break that pattern down and throw in some winter talk.

Temps today will run on the seasonally toasty side, with a few storms cranking up this afternoon and evening.

Here are your daily radars to watch the sky…

The showers and storms will increase late Monday as a storm system drops in from the northwest. This could bring strong storms our way on Tuesday.

Additional showers and storms likely linger into Wednesday, with another system possibly coming at us later in the week toward the weekend. All this should help keep temps running a little cooler than normal.

I promised you guys a little winter talk, so lets do this. I’ve already shared some early thoughts over the past month or two… I like the way the El Niño is forecast to setup. The placement in the central Nino region and the weak look to it, both argue for a winter trough across our region. That would be good news to cold and snow lovers.

The new seasonal run of the Canadian Model looks like the last run and is locked in on the trough idea…

December

January

February

 

March

That’s a heck of a look for winter lovers and would show a fast starting winter that lingers through March.

Have a great Sunday and take care.
