Wednesday Blog: Tracking more rain! -Doug

I hope your having a great week so far and at least got a little bit of rain on Tuesday.  It wasn’t much, but most of us picked up .1-.2 tenths of an inch.  Good news is more rain is in the forecast on Wednesday morning.

Scattered showers and even a few thunderstorms to start the day.  Most of these will be north of I-44 but at least we will get some.  Rainfall amounts again fairly light.

By the afternoon, sunshine returns across the area.

Now it will be windy again with winds gusting up to 25-30 mph.

Chilly temps by Thursday morning as a second weak front drops into the region.

However, Thursday afternoon looks fantastic.

Lets look at the upper levels.

The new Heady Pattern (HP) is fully set and I am currently nailing down the exact cycle length.  The length will be shorter than last year 64 day cycle.  But again, already I can tell we have the potential to get some good arctic air blasts this winter, similar to the past two winters.  That huge upper level low in the Great Lakes will continue to return in the pattern this winter.  Our next wave drops in Saturday.  Most of the rain will stay south of us, but we will watch it.

Long range forecast is below.


Next Wednesday -Saturday: Weak system on Thursday with some rain chances.  Temperatures mainly into the 60s into the weekend.  However, we should warm by the weekend.

October 23rd-October 29th: Mainly a mild week with rain chances on Sunday and Monday, then again Thursday and Friday.  Cooling down heading into the weekend.

October 30th-November 5th: A mild week with rain chances on Tuesday and Wednesday, then again on Friday.

November 6th-12th: A mild first half of the week with a cool second half.  Rain chances on Sunday and Monday, Wednesday and the weekend.
