Some big time changes just ahead

Good Wednesday to one and all. It’s a nice day out there, but some big time weather changes are blowing in for the next couple of days. These changes will bring another early taste of winter for some, with a much bigger taste possible early next week.

Our Wednesday looks to be in good shape with increasing clouds and temps hitting the low 60s for many. Those clouds will spit out a few showers to our west by evening:

The rain really ramps up tonight into Thursday and could be heavy at times. Cold air quickly crashes in here from north to south Thursday into Thursday evening and may switch over to a period of rain/snow mix or a brief period of light snow and flurries.

The NAM is seeing this better:

So does the GFS:

That’s some very cold air crashing in here. Lows have a shot at the upper teens in a few spots by Friday morning:

Wind chills are way down into the low and middle teens by Friday morning:

Highs on Friday likely stay in the 30s for many areas, setting the stage for another frigid night. Saturday looks seasonally cold with a small chance for a morning snow flurry.

Our arctic front then drops our way late Sunday into Monday. Temps ahead of this spike into the 50s on Sunday then come tumbling down on Monday as the front blows in. This front may have a wave of low pressure develop along it and the models are seeing more and more of this potential, including the GFS:

So our idea from a week ago of a wave of low pressure along an arctic front has merit, but it still isn’t a lock. That could bring the first light snowfall of the season to parts of our region. Again, it’s not a lock, but it’s interesting to track.

Temps behind that arctic front could challenge record lows by Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

Have a great day and take care.
