A wet and windy start to the weekend

Good Friday. friends. We are putting the wraps on the month of November with occasional rain rolling across Kentucky. This is the opening act for a bigger storm system moving in tonight and Saturday. That brings a  lot of rain and wind our way, with some strong storms to boot.

This weather isn’t going to last much longer because Old Man Winter is ready to crash back in early next week.

Today’s showers are scattered about the area and you may hear some rumbles of thunder. Here are your radars to track the last day of November rains:

The next system rolling in Friday night into Saturday is another powerful low pressure. This is going to bring blizzard conditions to areas of the plains, but means a lot of rain, strong storms and high winds for our region. Rain and storms increase Friday night, with the potential for a strong line of storms to roll through during the day Saturday:

Can we pop a few severe storms out of that? I certainly think that’s a possibility. High wind is the main player, with gusts that may reach 50mph at times. Yowza.

Hefty rainfall numbers are likely through Saturday. Some 1″-2″ amounts, with locally higher numbers, are likely:

Sunday’s weather looks really nice with mainly dry conditions and gusty winds. Cold air crashes back in Sunday night and Monday. Rain and some snow is possible on Monday as the temps fall. Light snow and snow showers should kick back in for Tuesday and Wednesday with a decent chance to put snow on the ground.

Very cold air comes into play for the middle of the week as we watch to see what happens late next week into the weekend. For days now, I’ve been talking about a storm signal showing up during this timeframe. Of course, it doesn’t mean a storm will happen or that, if it does, it will impact our weather.

That said, the models are picking up on the possibility:

GFS

New version of the GFS

European

Look at the arctic outbreak behind that storm on the European:

As I said… It’s a wild ride ahead of us.

Have a good one and take care.
