The Coming ChillOctober 2nd, 2012 at 2:36 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Click on the image or click here to enlarge. This is the 6-10 day temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for October 7-11. We have a really blast of fall coming with high temperatures crashing into the low-mid 50s. The GFS plot gives G.R. just 47 on Sunday. with 850 mb temperatures (about a mile above ground) in the low 20s! That would set up a huge contrast with the 63-degree water of Lake Michigan. Look for lake-effect showers and the possibility of waterspouts over the lake and some mixed ice pellets. I’ll update more later on this evening/tonight…but it’s going to be chilly for the ArtPrize winners announcement party Friday evening and the coming weekend into early next week.
Winter has come to Mt. Washington NH. Look at the snow that the GFS model is printing out from far NW Minnesota into Ontario. That’s 18″ north of Lake of the Woods! Also, Brian Duey sent me this picture of the Northern Lights in Howard City on 9/30.
