wonderful weekend ahead


1. The region will be under high pressure all weekend which means a few passing clouds at best and with the high slowly moving southerly flow kicks in behind the high allowing for a warming trend with highs starting out friday on avg in the mid 60’s to then the low 70’s on avg by sunday, lows will be near 40 tomorrow night and in the upper 40’s for daybreak monday. This will be the best weekend of the fall weatherwise it’s also quite ironic that this was my first week forecasting for the stormtoppers here at WKU.

here is a link to that site http://www.wku.edu/~leeperd/which will soon be added to the links!

2. IDA update

Ida is now a tropical depression but should get back to being  a storm by early next week, the gulf is not all that warm for tropical intensification now so this will be only be a tropical storm when it reaches the northeast gulf.

my other concern is the disturbance in the western gulf here is the NAM view of this on monday am.  a front over the plains should move southeast by mid week to draw this moisture northward into the Ohio valley.
