October 9, 11 PM Weather Forecast Update

Here is a quick update.

Lows this morning ran 37-45.

Highs today reached 72-76 with increasing & thickening high clouds in the PM.

Nearly every winter weather, freezing & wind alert is up from the Plains & through the West with even a Severe T'Storm Watch with some developing warnings in Oklahoma.

Arctic front just went through at the Denver Intl. Airport with blowing dust & a gust to 55 mph.  After 83 for a high, headed for 23 with developing snow tonight.

Lows tomorrow night of 13 will completely obliterate any fall color for the season.  Green leaves will tend to turn brown & fall off with that kind of cold.

Should be back to 68 Sunday!!

Buckley Air Force Base, on the east-southeast side of Denver, gusted to 64 mph with passage of cold front!  The blowing dust dropped the visibility down to 2.50 miles.

Looks like a storm for the ages for so early in the year for North Dakota. Looks like the worst October snowstorm for this general region since the Great Minneapolis October Blizzard of 1991.

Given the highly-significant accumulations for so early in the season with foliated trees & the kinds of winds seen in the model data, I would expect an upgrade to Blizzard Warning for parts of eastern North Dakota.

These winds are in knots.  Coverting to miles per hour, gusts of 55-65 mph will occu southern Manitoba to North Dakota.  Gusts to 55 mph may reach South Dakota.

Storm will bring a few isolated showers tomorrow, a few spotty showers/t'showers tomorrow night & a band of rainfall with a couple of embedded gusty storms Friday.  Corridor of main severe risk should stay west & southwest of our area.

A couple isolated gusts +45 mph are possible with the cold front's narrow line of heavier rainfall/storms Friday midday-afternoon.

Some rain will lingering through Friday evening as temperatures drop from 68-75 to 43-47 quickly.

Looks like a muddy, cold, windy, wet Friday night Frenzy.

0.50-1" rainfall is likely for the area, but a few areas may exceed 1" of rainfall some.

Sun Saturday & Sunday with windy conditions will bring highs of 50-56 Saturday & 58-64 Sunday with lows in the 30s.

Some showers are possible Tuesday to Wednesday AM (trace-0.12")after a dry Monday with highs overall in the 50s to 60.

After lows 32-35 this weekend to start of the week, looks like lows 29-33 Wednesday & Thursday nights of next week.

Temperatures skyrocket after that to 70s, then wave of rain/storms with windy conditions passes near October 21-22.

Severe weather is likely Iowa to Texas.  Some may get in here.

20s & freezing is likely after that system, followed by warm, stormy, active, wet, windy weather with some severe risk at times near Halloween to November 15.

Much colder weather should follow with temperatures well-below possible with some very minor snow.
