Tracking another big storm system

Good Monday to one and all. Mild winds will continue to blow across the region over the next few days. This flow is ahead of a potent storm working across the Plains states and targeting our region with another round of heavy rain and some thunder.

Here’s a breakdown:

  • Clouds increase Monday as winds become southwesterly. A couple of showers arrive late in the day into evening across Central and Western Kentucky.
  • Tuesday should be a mainly dry day with highs well into the 60s. Winds will gust from the southwest.
  • Wednesday is the big day of impact from our storm system as a wall of heavy rain works from west to east:

GFS Rain totals of an inch or two will be possible as the line sweeps through:

GFS 2Winds could gust to 35 mph at times as this system works through. Much colder air then pushes in for Thursday and Friday.

Recent computer model forecasts for next weekend have shown a winter looking system zipping across the Ohio Valley. The European Model is one of them:

Here’s the snow forecast from that run of the European Model:

We will have to wait and see how that works out, but  a much colder pattern is taking shape over the next few weeks. That means we have the potential for cold turkey for Thanksgiving week.

Make it a magnificent Monday and take care.
