Cold weekend continues

Good Sunday to one and all. We continue to deal with one of the colder weekends you will ever see around here for the end of October. There is still a chance for a few more snowflakes today. So, where does this pattern go as we head into November?

Let’s figure that out together.

Highs today should generally range from the upper 30s to low 40s with a mostly cloudy sky. This should be among the top 20 coldest October high temps in the last 50 years for Lexington. Impressive!

A snow shower or two will be possible on a strong northwesterly flow, especially across the southeast:

For the past week, I’ve been talking about a big storm going up the east coast that could entrain some kind of disturbance from the tropics. That disturbance is about to become a Tropical Storm…

Watch how that gets entrained into a monster storm slamming the northeast…

That’s not quite up to Sandy standards, but it’s a distant relative.

That does pull down a little bit of chill in here for Halloween. Trick or treat temps drop into the upper 30s:

Rain arrives to start November:

That kicks off a very active and wet pattern in our part of the world. The setup I’m looking at can produce a ton of rain and even threaten us with thunderstorm action for a week to 10 day period.

At the same time, the amount of cold air building up on our side of the globe is VERY impressive. That’s gonna be a force to deal with later this month and into December. I think I have my Bold Prediction for the winter forecast and it has to do with December. 🙂

Have a great Sunday and take care.
