Rain and wind on the increase

Good Saturday, everyone. A big storm system continues to develop to our southwest and will roll toward the Great Lakes tonight and Monday. This means an increase in heavy rain and high winds during this time.

The winds will be the major player through Monday. Wind gusts of 40-45mph will be possible during this time. It might be a good time to secure outdoor objects before the rain arrives today.

The steady, heavy rains will move in during the afternoon and evening. Rumbles of thunder will be possible. Temps will spike into the mid and upper 50s before the rain arrives. The later part of the day looks particularly nasty.

I have you set to track the nasty:

Current temperatures

A cold front swings through here Monday and will ramp the winds up a notch. This front will also bring a heck of a temperature drop:

GFS

Temps as we inch toward Thanksgiving will be back on the colder side of the thermometer, but nothing like last week. Several models suggest a big storm rolling up the east coast.

Here’s the latest run of the European model:

Euro

That’s a huge winter storm that tries to snow some snow into eastern Kentucky. That is a mess of a storm for the busiest travel day of the year, if that model is correct.

The European still has the second system diving in here from the northwest Wednesday night into Thanksgiving morning. That brings a period of light snow our way with cold temps for turkey day.

Have a great Sunday and take care.
