Our Week Ahead In Weather

Good Sunday, folks. Saturday featured some wild weather across the bluegrass state and it looks like the active pattern is going to continue. The upcoming week may feature a little bit of everything.

Hail producing thunderstorms in November are very rare. Hail producing thunderstorms in November with a temp of 40 degrees is just extreme. That’s exactly the weather hand many folks were dealt on Saturday.

Things today look to be much more tranquil with partly sunny skies and chilly temps. Readings today will top out in the upper 40s and lower 50s. The new week looks to start out with similar conditions as we keep an eye on another big system rolling up the east coast by the middle of the week.

That storm may bring a late day shower to us on Election Day with highs in the low 50s. As the storm deepens along the mid Atlantic states, it pulls down colder air into the state. Showers will increase on Wednesday and a wet flake can’t be ruled out in the east. Here’s how the GFS sees the setup for Wednesday:

That looks ugly for the northeast and that’s terrible news for the millions of people still picking up from Sandy. This storm may produce a lot of snow for interior New England.

The pattern around here by the end of next week will begin to warm in a big way. Readings could hit 70 degrees next weekend before a plains storm puts an end to it:

We may go from thunderstorms to a few flakes with the passage of that cold front.

Have a super Sunday and take care.
