Halloween looks cold

Good Monday to one and all. As we come out of a very winter-like weekend, all eyes turn to that Halloween forecast. I’ll hook you up with that and talk about a wet beginning to November.

Before we move ahead, let’s look back at some interesting stats from our weekend.

  • Lexington had snow on back-to-back October days for the first time since 1993. That’s only the third time this has happened in the past 50 years; 1989 was the other year.
  • Sunday’s high in Lexington was 39 degrees, marking the ninth-coldest October high temperature in the past 100 years. I also was the coldest October day since Halloween 1993.

Simply put, it just doesn’t get much colder or snowier in October than what we had this past weekend.

Rolling ahead, we findĀ  a weak front marching in Monday evening. There’s little to no moisture with this front, but it knocks the temps down for Halloween. Lows are in the upper 20s, ith highs in the 40s. Trick or treat hours look cold:

November rolls in on a wet and chilly note for Wednesday. As the rain moves into the state, there is a small chance that it begins as a touch of sleet in the north:

From there, rounds of rain takes over through Thursday. Some thunderstorms may even get into the mix by Friday and into the weekend, as our temps mild up. The mild weather likely comes with a very wet price through early next week.

The GFS is spitting out a lot of rain in the next week:

This is a soggy pattern that may carry us all the way through next week. If you’re looking for our next chance for flakes, we will watch the period of November 10-20.

Make it a great Monday and take care.
