Colder winds blowing today

Good Tuesday to one and all. Our cold front continues to push to our east and we have a much colder wind blowing behind it. This ushers in a seasonal chill for the next few days, then we start to focus on a system by the end of the week or weekend.

Let’s begin with today. Areas of eastern Kentucky may still see a shower or two around early this morning. If that’s the case, this action will show up on your regional radar:

A mix of sun and clouds will be noted for the rest of the region as temps only make it into the 50s for the bulk of the afternoon. Gusty winds will make it feel chillier than that.

Wednesday into Thursday continue to look really nice! Seasonal highs in the 60s look to be the case.

Our weekend system continues to show up differently on the models, but I’m strongly leaning toward the European and Canadian solutions. They feature a slow-moving storm coming out of the deep south with gusty winds, heavy rain and chilly air:

The European is getting faster with that system as it sheds the bias of holding energy back. That also impacts the next system coming behind that into the middle of next week. That system will be on the leading edge of arctic air pouring into the country. Look what the new EURO cranks out across the Ohio Valley:

What’s interesting is that most models are locking in on the cold, but vary on the chance for winter precip showing up by the end of the month into the start of November. Look at the arctic cold numbers on the Canadian as close out October:

Those numbers are for an October morning, folks. Wow.

Make it a great Tuesday and take care.
