Good Tuesday everyone. Our long Labor Day holiday weekend has come to and end but the active weather pattern has not. The remnants of Isaac are STILL bringing showers and storms to the region today. That stuff will being to pull away late today as two more systems line up to impact our weather later in the week.
Tropical air remains today and that will lead to a few showers and storms going up. This action will be more common during the afternoon and evening hours and locally heavy rains are a good bet. Here’s regional radar to follow the drops:
A cold front approaches the state from the northwest later Wednesday and early Thursday. This front may fire up a couple of thunderstorms as our temps warm into the middle and upper 80s.
The main event may be what comes our way by the weekend. The early call is for a big cut off low pressure to form across the Ohio Valley from Friday into early next week. Gusty showers and thunderstorms may move in as early as Friday afternoon with showers possible over the weekend. Winds should crank up as very cool air pushes in. The European Model has a wild look to it:
The model shows our closed low across this part of the world, but also has soon to be Hurricane Leslie making a run toward New England.
We will keep a close on that setup for the weekend as it COULD mean a prolonged stretch of nasty weather.
Have a great Tuesday and take care.
