Arctic Blast Heading Our Way...

>> Monday, November 17, 2008

Back at the Big 14 this morning after taking a week off to enjoy some time with my family. I did not get back in town until yesterday evening, so it truly was a week away from all of the normal routine type of things. Very nice to unplug for a while and get away from the email and TV.

The big weather story over the next couple of days is the blast of arctic air that will invade tomorrow. Highs will struggle to make it up into the low to mid 40s tomorrow afternoon.....add in a stiff northwest wind, and wind chill values will be in the 20s and 30s all day long. It is also quite possible that some spots will see some flurries in the Piedmont and/or coastal plain tomorrow. I think I will pick up some stuff for chili later today....

A hard freeze will occur Wednesday morning, and we will only be in the 40s again Wednesday afternoon.

Still come conflicting signals for the weekend. The 0z run of the GFS portrayed a storm system rolling in here Sunday, while the European has no such storm for the Southeast. The 6z GFS has now flipped to a cold and dry scenario for the weekend, and I am leaning toward that solution being the correct one. We shall see.

hey matthew,

glad to see you're back at news14. i really enjoy the daily weather videos. hope you had fun while you were off....just wondering, have you had a chance to look at the gfs model around the 28th? some ppl have noticed as well as myself, do you think it could be a potential winter storm for the southeast? thanks

hey matthew,

the storm around the 28th does seem pretty impressive....if it's cold enough...who knows? of more interest to me for some reason seems to be a storm around dec. 3rd. have you had a chance to take a look at that?

Thanks for your kind words.

It is tough to take any details in that time fram on the models, but the general idea seems to be a storm system around the 28th and another one during the first few days of December. We will see how it looks like these will play out once within 7 or 8 days....
