Good Monday, folks. October is quickly running out of days and we have another big time storm system heading toward the bluegrass state. That system may very well cause some issues for trick or treaters on Halloween.
The weather out there today looks really good with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. Tuesday should be a similar day, so let’s enjoy it.
changes starting Wednesday. That’s when a modified arctic front drops close to the region and slows down, allowing low pressure to develop along the front. That looks to roll right on top of us Wednesday and Thursday:
The end result for us looks to be rounds of heavy rain and even the potential for a few strong thunderstorms. Winds should be very gusty during this time and we may pick up another significant rainfall. That rain would push our region into one one of the wettest Octobers on record. Yes, you heard that right… one of the wettest Octobers on record on the heels of September being the driest month in recorded history. To take it one setup further, we will be above normal in rainfall for the fall season, which began on September 1st. That is absolutely amazing!!
You can also see the stripe of heavy snow from the midwest into the Great Lakes. That could be record snowfall for some of those areas. You also see some flakes into areas of the Ohio Valley late on Halloween.
Very cold air sweeps in here late Halloween into the start of November:
