Good Thursday to one and all. Our incredibly cold November pattern is about to take a break for a few days, as a wet and windy setup replaces it. As a matter of fact, the wind this weekend may cause some issues and you may hear rumbles of thunder. Nothing like going from one extreme to the other, eh?
Before we turn up the wind and rain, the precipitation moving in today may actually start as a light wintry mix. A touch of sleet and freezing rain is possible before light rain takes over. Here are your Thursday radar trackers:
Rain and a few thunderstorms are likely from Friday through Saturday as low pressure wraps up across the Mississippi Valley and heads toward the Great Lakes. Heavy rainfall and high winds of 40-50mph are possible during this time…
A few strong storms are possible, especially across the west.
Colder air seeps in behind this system by Monday as the next system tries to develop. We are seeing a split in the modelling on how to handle any potential storm system early next week. The GFS goes back and forth with the track of any potential storm. The current run as it on top of us with likely a rain to snow setup:
The Canadian pushes this storm farther south and east and is much weaker. It basically crushes the storm with arctic air flooding in from the northwest:
We shall see how this works out, but it appears to be a rain to snow situation in my eyes.
Very cold air moves in behind that as we watch for a much bigger storm system to take a southern track toward the end of next week:
Have a great day and take care.
