A winter preview pattern

Good Monday to one and all. For the past few weeks, I’ve been warning you about a super cold pattern developing for the second part of October. This pattern is underway and will only grow colder this week. Let’s be honest… it’s a pattern that looks more like December than October.

Today will be the mildest and nicest day for the rest of the month. Temps will hit the 60-65 degree range under party sunny skies. Clouds will increase by the end of the day as a cold front marches our way.

This front arrives early Tuesday with a line of cold showers. Winds will be very gusty as the rains move through. Temps will be in the low 40s when it rains and then recover toward the low 50s as some afternoon sun shines.

Another fast moving system sweeps in on Wednesday. This will bring showers and gusty winds in here as temps turn even colder. Some of the models continue to indicate the potential for some wet flakes or a touch of sleet mixing in:


Temps will struggle into the low and mid 40s for highs Wednesday and Thursday. Lows will go below freezing by Thursday morning and likely stay there for a few more days. Another system will try to throw some more moisture our way at some point Thursday.

Yet another cold front arrives Saturday night into Sunday and may produce a day similar to what we have this Wednesday.

As the old saying goes… you ain’t seen nothing yet. Take a look at the cold that some of the models bring us next week:
