Good Tuesday, everyone. The severe storms are to our east, but very windy weather continues on this Election Day. These winds will usher in a chilly air that will likely turn cold by the end of the week as a very cold setup takes control of our weather.
Winds today are still in the 30-40mph range at times as skies become partly cloudy. A leftover shower or two is possible:
A weak system zips across the Tennessee Valley on Wednesday and may throw some chilly showers into the state. Highs range from the middle 40s to low 50s.
The next system is a stronger one and will move across the area Thursday into Friday. Rain develops ahead of this system, with gusty winds and a temp crash behind it. That may spit out some snowflakes, especially on a northwesterly wind flow by late Friday:
The GFS does show some flakes getting into the bluegrass state:
The Canadian does too, but in a different area:
That sets the stage for a very cold weekend with highs on Saturday struggling to get to 40 in many areas. Gusty winds make it feel even colder.
The next system has even colder air pushing in into early next week. The models go back and forth on just how big of a storm system this push of arctic air can help crank up. The latest GFS is pretty progressive, but shows periods of light snow and flurries:
Have a great day and take care.
