The coldest air of the season moves in.

Good Saturday everyone. We have a cold weekend in store for the region as the lowest temps of the young season blow into town. The cold air is being accompanied by some very pleasant weather that should help us dry things out for a bit.

We may start the day with a touch of snow showers or flurries that can leave behind a sugar coating for a few spots. Not a big deal in the overall scheme of things.Lows this morning will dip into the low and mid 20s with afternoon sunshine boosting high temps into the low and middle 30s.

Sunday should start even colder with lows hitting the upper teens and low 20s. Another sunny day will see high temps warming toward 40.

The new week starts off with more in the way of sunshine and temps back into the 40s. This may be the last totally dry day we see for a while as the threat of some showers moves in by later Tuesday and Wednesday.

A big plains storm is brewing for the middle and end of next week and should bring more decent rains in here for Thursday and early Friday. This storm is going to try to unlease the beast of cold across Canada and you can see this on the European Model...




There is likely to be some upper energy hanging back across the southwestern U.S. late next week into the following weekend. It will be interesting to watch how and when this comes out as it should develop into a wintry threat for the Ohio Valley at some point.

The latest GFS shows what i'm talking about next weekend...




That's a good looking setup for wintry weather around here and is something for us to be watching. This has been showing up on the Ensembles for a while now, so it has support. Those same ensembles continue to point toward a cold and stormy period in the week heading up to Christmas.

I will have another update later today. Have a great Saturday and take care.
