It was a lengthy video today. Ugh, sorry! I didn't mean for it to be. But when you "nerd out"..you "nerd out".
Many of you have been asking not only about the weekend weather, but about this front that arrives Friday.
We still have some timing issues with this one. Timing with its arrival and timing as in speed that it moves into southern KY. To throw a wrench into things, I am seeing signs of post-frontal stratus/drizzle/light rain that may linger for much of Kentucky through the early evening.
Rain amounts look like ...generally .25" or less. Any thunderstorm activity could increase that, but it looks too localized to promote.
Severe threat doesn't look impressive at all with main wind fields to our northeast...closer to the low itself. However, a few gusts up to 30 mph cannot be ruled out.
In fact, with this post front rain...we may see some gusty north winds in the afternoon/evening which would only make it feel BLAH outside.
Let's hope the timing changes and we can push this front more to the south in the afternoon. We have a full day to analyze the data once again. The low is JUST NOW moving onshore over southwest Canada.
I will touch base on some of the players on the field...some quite unique in fact. These "players" will be key on how the weather pattern evolves over the next couple of weeks. Overall, it appears nothing dramatic is slated for our area with any cold shots likely limited to the Great Lakes or New England.
However, as I always say, let's give it time and take it slow and see how the pattern evolves. October has been a wild card month...especially the last 10 day...so far this decade. And many of those events didn't show up until just a few days before.
Here is the video:
