Good Tuesday, folks. We have a seasonally chilly air mass in place across the region, but it’s the weekend taking center stage. This is when a potent storm system moves our way with some wild weather.
Let’s start with Tuesday.
Highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s in many areas, with a mix of sun and clouds.
Those clouds will quickly thickenWednesday as rain returns during the afternoon and evening. Those showers should be able to put down a quarter of an inch in some areas:
Temps behind this front will take a bit of a dip again Thursday. Highs from the NAM show this well:
From there, it’s all eyes on the big weekend storm system. The GFS now seems to have a very good handle on the evolution of this bad boy:
That’s trending more toward the Canadian model in terms of intensity and the winds behind it.
Behind that weekend storm system, northwesterly winds might try to produce a few snowflakes around here into early next week. The exact wind direction will come into play on this, but it’s something to watch for. The GFS ensembles show this potential:
The GFS then shows our next plunge of cold coming Tuesday night and Wednesday next week:
The GFS ensembles have been very consistent on the weekend cold leading us into a very cold Thanksgiving week. Check out the temperature anomalies through the holiday weekend:
The same model run does show an increase in the flake potential during the same time:
Make it a terrific Tuesday and take care.
