Showers Saturday EveningOctober 11th, 2013 at 11:35 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
We are in the (green) General Thunderstorm Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center for late Saturday and Saturday Night. We’re not anticipating severe weather (there were no severe weather reports in the U.S. on Friday, as of 11:30 PM), but showers and a few embedded thunderstorms look likely ahead of a cool front that will pass thru Saturday night. That will turn us a little cooler…from highs in the low-mid 70s this Saturday to the low-mid 60s on Sunday (average high is now 62. Showers and even cooler weather is expected for the midweek into next weekend. Click the graphic to enlarge.
For you weather geeks…here’s the PNA, NAO and AO. The index values are bouncing around (not unusual in mid-October). We’re certainly looking for cooler air to move in for next week, but nothing drastically cold for this time of year. The night run of the NAM (caribou) has a high of 77 today (Sat.) with 0.06″ of rain falling from 7 PM to midnight, the partly sunny and 64 on Sunday, mid 30s early Monday and low 60s Monday PM.
