Gusty winds this weekend

Good Friday to one and all. We have another seasonally chilly November day in the making, but it’s all eyes on a strong cold front this weekend. Gusty winds, showers and a blast of cold will accompany our front.

Winds will begin to gust on Saturday as our cold front approaches from the west. Those winds will absolutely crank Saturday night and Sunday as the front slams in here. Gusts may top 50mph at times. There’s some nice agreement among the models…

A few showers show up ahead of the front later Saturday, but this action becomes widespread as we go into Saturday night and early Sunday. From there, colder air moves in with another front pushing in behind this one…

I continue to think temps moderate quickly by the end of next week into the start of the weekend. But, the trend continues to be for another push of cold air to dive in here from the northwest to kick off Thanksgiving week. Can this setup have a storm system with it?

The Canadian says yes…

The EURO is slower but you can see low pressure coming out of the southwest on the final day of the model run…

The GFS sees the cold shot coming, but is always showing a progressive look…

So, my idea of Thanksgiving week giving us something to watch out for seems to have some merit. At least it does for now. 🙂

Have a great Friday and take care.
