Early November Pattern Settles In

Good Friday to one and all. We have a very chilly pattern settling in across the eastern half of the country and that is bringing November-like readings to Kentucky. This setup will bring a couple of chilly rain makers our way, including what’s left of a Pacific hurricane.

Patchy frost may be with us to start the day with several areas in the mid and upper 30s. Skies will be partly sunny, but clouds will roll in this evening and may produce a  few showers into the wee hours of the morning. There’s even the chance for a few snowflakes just to our north. This fast moving system that doesn’t have much moisture with it and will be gone by daybreak Saturday…

Lows by Saturday morning will be in the middle 30s where skies clear. Another touch of frost will be possible. Highs that afternoon will reach the 50s with clouds hanging tough. If the clouds stay thick, 50 may be a tough get.

The setup from Sunday into next week actually looks like a winter one. Several systems will move in from the southwest, bringing waves of chilly rain to the region…

If that same setup presents itself this winter, major snow and ice would accompany it.

Frosty cold mornings will follow that up into the middle of next week with a seasonal chill continuing for the rest of next week.

There’s a strong signature for cold showing up next weekend into the following week. Here’s how the GFS gets the ball rolling…

The GFS Ensembles follow that up with additional cold shots…

That same run suggests some Ohio Valley flake chances during the same time…

Have a great day and take care.
