windy times continue, maps for the next two storms and long range cold

by

1.  Winds will continue to the main issue after the hvy rain and thunder of last night. Gusts to 40 mph are still possible which may result in minor property damage and difficulty driving, High wind warnings and wind advisories continue. Temperatures will fall from the low 50’s at midnight to near 30 by days end with sprinkles ending as a flurrie in spots.

Folks in the plains had the nw side of the storm with a nice blizzard. cams from Des Moines,IA

2. thursday will be downright cold as the first arctic airmass spreads over us even with sunshine we don’t crack 30 and some light winds will lead to a wind chill in the 10’s.

3. Friday will be another sunny day with high pressure in control and the arctic airmass starts lifting out highs should make freezing or 35. the next system looks to move in slower for late friday keeping skies partly cloudy with lows in the 20’s.

4. this gets us to a light event for saturday which I’m growing less impressed with by the model run. why?

A: only light qpf which arrives in the daytime

B: WAA looks strong for the day saturday

C: model profiles favor rain as the precip type and temps above 32 with maybe some frz rain north where low level cold can hang on.

– the ice chance for north ky is still worth watching as some minor slick spots may result.

the regions of red is mix to rain with little if any accums, the light blue is 1-4 snow for saturday  and sat night.

5. a warm-up into the 40’s and maybe even 50’s is likley by monday this will be followed by an even bigger arctic airmass coming down Tuesday. i look for a storm to form along the boundary and ride ne. with an expected wide temp difference this could be a big time storm for a lot of folks.

the light blue is chance for snow, the darker blue represents a medium chance for a snow event.

6. anyone check out the the gfs operational untill christmas looks downright cold folks, which fits nicely the cfs and cpc forecasts.

    THE FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 200 PM EST FOR SMALL
    STREAMS IN LEE…ESTILL…WESTERN WOLFE AND POWELL COUNTIES…

    AT 1147 AM EST WATER LEVELS CONTINUED TO RUN HIGH ON SOME OF THE
    LARGER CREEKS AND STREAMS IN THE AREA. CREEKS AND STREAMS DRAINING
    INTO THE KENTUCKY RIVER AND THE RED RIVER WILL BE MOST LIKELY TO
    FLOOD LOW LYING AREAS AND ROADWAYS NEAR THE RIVERS. THE HIGHEST FLOOD
    WATERS ARE EXPECTED TO OCCUR NEAR THE KENTUCKY RIVER IN ESTILL
    COUNTY.

    A FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR HAS BEEN REPORTED.
    STREAM RISES WILL BE SLOW AND FLASH FLOODING IS NOT EXPECTED.
    HOWEVER…ALL INTERESTED PARTIES SHOULD TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS
    IMMEDIATELY.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

    DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
    ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS
    SAFELY. MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND.
