Good Tuesday to one and all. Our weather pattern this week is pretty darn awesome for fall lovers. Crisp mornings and pleasant afternoons will combine with clear skies for a great week of fall weather.
As we enjoy the good stuff right now, changes are brewing for later this weekend into next week. Those changes may take us into a very cold pattern to end October.
Today starts with a kiss of frost and upper 30s for many areas, and ends with sunshine and low 60s. Wednesday’s weather looks an awful lot like what we have out there today.
Temps rebound toward the low 70s later this week into the start of the weekend. This will be ahead of a cold front rolling our way by Sunday and Monday. That front will then likely take us into a VERY cold looking pattern for the last week of October.
Watch the GFS from this Sunday through Halloween:
That’s a very active and cold look to the model. We should see the first system impact our region with showers and storms late this weekend into early next week. That has a nice shot of cold coming in behind it by Tuesday…
That could bring the first flakes of the season to the high elevations along the Appalachian Mountains.
I’ve mentioned how a bigger trough would likely develop later next week and that those kinds of troughs are usually accompanied by a big storm. The GFS:
Now, that is likely too amped up, but you get the idea. It’s that shot of cold that we could get flakes flying into parts of the Ohio Valley.
The model then has another system digging in to end October:
The Canadian Model doesn’t go out as far as the GFS, but it’s singing a similar cold tune for the middle and end of next week:
That’s one heck of a winter looking pattern… In late October.
Have a great Tuesday and take care.
