Strong storms possible tonight

Good Sunday, everyone. We have a very windy and warm day taking place out there, and this may fuel some strong storms across the region tonight into Monday morning. That’s when a potent cold front arrives in town.

Before we get to the storms, temps will spike deep into the 70s. Wind gusts may reach 30mph at times this afternoon and evening.

Storms arrive overnight and early Monday with high winds a possibility. These storms may also drop an inch of rain in a few areas. The greatest severe threat is across the northern part of the state. I’ll have your tracking tools in a bit.

The front slows down and stalls on top of us on Monday. That allows another low to develop along the front, leading to some heavy rains through Tuesday. The NAM is impressed with those totals:

As that low passes east on Tuesday afternoon, temps crash from northwest to southeast:

The rest of the week is seasonably cold with the potential for additional showers as systems skirt by just to our south. One of those may still try to develop into something a little bigger.

The next system works in here for the weekend and early next week, with the Canadian being the deepest and coldest of the bunch:

The European Model keeps trending stronger with this system and is just a little colder than before:

It will be interesting to watch the trends for that system as we get closer to next weekend.

The European Ensembles did a great job in giving us a 2 week heads up to the late October snowflake potential, and they are saying “heads up” over the next 2 weeks:
