One arctic blast here...another en route....

>> Wednesday, November 19, 2008



Frigid temps to start our day today....most folks in the upper teens to lower 20s. Looks like the Charlotte airport hit 18 this morning! Brrr. Highs today will be in the 40s for the Piedmont in spite of lots of sun. However, the winds will not be a big factor today, so it will feel a bit more comfortable today compared to yesterday.

We will drop into the 20s tonight before we see one day of 50s for highs tomorrow before another big push of cold air arrives for Friday and the weekend. In fact, that next push of arctis air will be just as cold, if not a touch colder, than the current one.

Still lots of questions regarding next week. Temps should remain at least somewhat on the cool side, and some modeling indicates it could be quite chilly for Thanksgiving weekend. And I am still watching the first few days of December for a big storm system to roll through....we will see.

Matthew, today's low of 18 at CLT was stunning! It is the earliest CLT has gone below 20 on record. What a historic Arctic blast this is.

Wow, as of this evening, the GFS is really picking up on a snowstorm for the Charlotte region. Are you seeing this, and is it on the other modeling? Thanks, THFF

This is definitely some impressive cold. Very impressive.

I don't see a snowstorm taking the 18z GFS verbatim, but what I do see is a very exciting pattern being indicated from around November 30 onward.

I get the feeling we could have our chances the first couple of weeks in December, but I am still wrapping my mind around these ideas.
