TUESDAY WEATHER BRIEFING

(Click images to enlarge)

Good morning!

The remnants of Patricia remain off to our south but that low pressure area is pushing north this morning. High pressure is losing it’s grip on the Valley and clouds will win the battle today.

NOW

Despite the clouds, the rain will hold off until after dark. The wet weather is likely to arrive between 9pm-12am. Here’s a wide shot of our high-res model’s simulated radar:

hrrr

Zoomed in closer to home, we can see the rain pushing in to some areas at 10pm:

10pm

Rain will fall heavily at times overnight into Wednesday morning. The rain will become more scattered in nature for the afternoon Wednesday. Rainfall totals will average 1-1.5″.

Make sure your gutters and storm drains are clear. This much rain can cause issues if they are clogged!

The other issue overnight into Wednesday will be the wind. Up at 5,000 feet….the wind will be SCREAMING at 70-90 mph! Thankfully we don’t live at 5,000 feet. But some of that wind energy can get pulled down to the surface, especially in heavier showers. So some gusts to 40 mph are a possibility.

Wednesday afternoon, the cold front will swing through and there might be some thunderstorms along it. The highest risk for thunder will be to our east but even in the Valley it cannot be ruled out. Damaging winds are possible in any storms, mainly east of I-79:

DAY2

THURSDAY: 

Thursday will be a cooler day and gusty winds will still be a factor. We are not looking at much rain….a passing shower or two. Another round of showers is likely Thursday night.

FRIDAY: 

Friday will start with clouds but we expect sunshine for the afternoon and a calm evening for football.

WEEKEND: 

More in the way of clouds for Halloween, but what about rain? Models have been going back and forth on this. Our forecast is a dry one for now but keep checking back if you have evening trick-or-treat plans.

The chance for rain is higher for Sunday.

Next week looks mild with at least a few days with highs in the 60s. Not a bad start to November!

MONDAY WEATHER BRIEFING

Good Monday morning!

We started off cold this morning with frost and temperatures near freezing in many places. This afternoon will be sunny and seasonable. One of the better days of the week!

HIGHSMONDAY

Meanwhile, the remnants of Patricia are sitting along the Gulf Coast this morning. As that low pulls north, it will merge with a “regular” area of low pressure, resulting in a pretty potent Fall storm moving through the Midwest.

CURRENT

TUESDAY: 

Clouds will thicken across the Valley on Tuesday but we will likely stay dry during the daylight hours. The rain will spread in from the south by evening and it will likely start raining in most pf the Valley between 8pm and midnight.

WEDNESDAY: 

As the storm tracks to our west, it will be a windy and mild day but showers will be around….most numerous in the morning. Even though the rain will be most likely in the morning….there may be spotty thunderstorms around in the afternoon.

Rainfall totals are likely to average abut an inch from Tuesday night through Wednesday. The SREF model, which now contains 26 “members” has an average of 1.2″ with some members showing 1.5″ or so:

THURSDAY: 

Behind the cold front, a windy and chilly day Thursday with times of clouds and sun. A shower or two is possible. It will feel a good 15 degrees colder than Wednesday.

FRIDAY:

A better day! Chilly, yes…but nothing unusual for October 30. Will be dry for football in the evening and for any Halloween parties you may be off to!

HALLOWEEN: 

At this point, Saturday looks like a pretty good day for Halloween with some sun and highs in the 50s. Evening temperatures in the upper 40s.

SUNDAY: 

At this early stage, it looks like Sunday will be the lousier half of the weekend with showers possible.

LONG RANGE: 

The pattern looks to favor some mild air as we head into November:

THURSDAY WEATHER BRIEFING

Morning!

Today will be mild once again, but…..it will be a cloudier day and a shower is possible around lunch time. Here’s the 15-hour simulated radar:

hrrr_2015102211_ref_cleveland

That looks overdone to me….I think a lot of places will see no rain at all. Some sun will work in later this afternoon and it should be another nice sunset.

FRIDAY: 

A nice seasonable day with afternoon sunshine. Watch for some shallow ground fog early. A great evening to catch some high school football!

FRI

SATURDAY: 

The next cold front is on the way and there may be a shower as early as early afternoon. The showers are most likely during the evening and overnight.

SAT

SUNDAY: 

The front is long gone and this day looks nice! It will be cooler with highs in the 50s.

SUN

NEXT WEEK: 

It looks like a string area of low pressure will track through the Midwest Wednesday into Thursday. Showers are likely Wednesday and there might even be a thunderstorm. Tree-stripping winds seem likely as well. Trees will be a lot more bare by the end of the week.

WEDS

The month looks to end on a chilly note.
