The latest run of the GFS indicates highs Sunday now in the lower 50s and lows Monday morning in the upper 30s with rain likely. Many times the model temperature is too high in these situations. I want to stress here, we are only looking at rain... nothing frozen whatsoever! It's only Wednesday so the scenario could still change. I'll have more later.
Starting today, if you click on "comments" a window will pop up. You can read what everyone is saying here and add you own comment.
As promised, the trip Ninja took to Norman, OK for the National Weather Festival is up on the blog. If you're into storm chasing, you're going to want to check out this video then click on "Ninja's Corner" at the top of the page. I'm already making plans to head out there with him next year.
Many of you have heard the rumors of colder weather for the last half of the month which could make Arkansas go "Cold Turkey" Starting next week, the pattern is set for amplification. This means a significant ridge of high pressure will build into western Canada with a trough downstream. The western Canadian ridge will be able to tap into colder air and deliver shots of it southward into the United States. So what about precipitation? I expect at least a couple rounds of cold rain. I'm not going to speculate about wintry weather, but I'm watching it and all the bloggers are watching it as well.
The National Weather Service release of their long range outlook over the past few days caught some attention. It basically backs up the theory of a colder pattern developing. The areas of deep purple means there's a high level of confidence of below average temperatures. How much those temperatures drop is hard to say, but considering the warm fall, it will be welcomed my most of us!!!!!!
