Tracking high winds and heavy rain

Good Wednesday, everyone. A powerful storm system is affecting the Bluegrass State. It is bringing heavy rain and high winds to much of our region. As expected, it’s also going to allow more of a winter pattern to unfold in the coming weeks.

Winds today could reach 40 to 45 mph at times ahead of our cold front. A band of heavy rain producing showers and storms works slowly through here from midday into the evening.

 

 

Temps start well into the 60s then drop behind the front.

Thursday looks much better, with highs in the 50s and partly sunny skies. Winds will continue to be gusty. Temps Friday will start in the low 30s and rise to the upper 40s by afternoon.

This leads us into a winter-looking system that drops in from the northwest on Saturday. This one is being pushed by a significant blast of cold air and might be introduced by a band of rain and snow showers:

EuroWinds will be very gusty as temps crash through the 30s behind the front. Temps could drop into the upper 20s by late Saturday evening and keep dropping from there:

GFS TempsAS I said, this is some cold stuff coming our way.

Thanksgiving week starts chilly and dry, but a late-week storm system might develop and work our way:

GFS 3We still have a week and change to figure out what happens with that system. For now, let’s take them one at a time.

Enjoy your day and take care.
