Good Wednesday to one and all. We have a big time storm system rolling into the region over the next few days. This will bring rounds of heavy rain, thunderstorms and gusty winds to the bluegrass state.
Here’s an outlook of how things may play out:
My thought process on the next few days remains unchanged:
- This is a late today through Friday morning event.
- Rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms will move across the state during this time.
- Rainfall amounts of 1″-3″ will be possible, with locally higher amounts if storms do in fact crank.
- Wind gusts of 30mph-40mph will be noted as the low pressure tracks across the region Thursday into Thursday night. Higher gusts will be possible.
- Temps spike to near 70 for some areas for a short time on Thursday, but crash down behind the low on Friday. Temps for Friday are in the 30s to start and may not get out of the low and middle 40s for highs. Gusty winds will make it feel colder.
The models are now all pretty much in agreement with one another:
A lot of this moisture will be drawn in from Zeta. This storm is barreling toward Louisiana and the center should pass just to our southeast:
Halloween continues to look seasonally chilly with frost in the morning and mid to upper 50s in the afternoon.
A stronger push of cold air comes in behind another front slamming in here late Sunday. We will need to watch to see if a few flakes can show up across areas of the north and east into early Monday.
It may get close before all is said and done. Morning lows will be deep into the 20s by Monday and Tuesday.
I leave you with your rain tracking radars:
Make it a great day and take care.
