Severe weather threat ahead

Good Saturday to one and all. We have much better weather moving in today and that bodes well for the big UK football game at Kroger Field. Unfortunately, that nice weather doesn’t last very long as showers move in later Sunday. The focus, though, is on a severe weather threat lurking for late Monday into early Election Day.

Today’s weather looks pretty nice with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the 50s. If you’re heading out to Kroger Field for the Cats and Dogs, plan on a quick drop into the upper 40s after halftime.

A weak cold front moves through here on Sunday, bringing a few showers from west to east as the day wears on:

I have no changes on the big storm system moving in here late Monday into Tuesday. This will be a powerhouse of a storm that brings high winds and severe storms into the region.

The models are all over this storm:

Winds with this may be absolutely crazy. Gusts of 60mph or greater are possible Monday night and early Tuesday. The European Model has hurricane force wind gusts showing up:

That’s just absurd and would be enough to cause major wind damage without the help of true severe storms.

Colder air surges in behind that with another system set to pounce by Thursday and Friday. Many models have been giving us a chance at the first snowflakes on the backside of this system:

That’s a lot of VERY cold air coming in behind this system. Check out the low temps next weekend:

Have a great day and take care.
