Real-time BG Radar:
Today: Partly sunny. High of 29ºF / Tonight: Clear skies invade the province. Lows around 23ºF.
Much like the Crusades in the middle ages, I feel like the Arctic air has been the Catholics to our Middle East. It just keeps coming into the land and taking all of our joy and hope. The kings (troughs) are sending their warriors in white robes (snowfall) to bombard our region with arctic air.
We have another wave coming. Batten down the hatches. Get the kids inside. The Arctic Crusades are coming. Prior to their arrival, the war front will be hidden amongst clouds, as they dominate the western front today. This will keep the air a bit crisp, as highs make it into the mid 30s. Rays of light in the sky are probable as well.
Overnight, the skies will begin clearing, and we begin fighting the invasion of the Arctic crusade again. Lows drop into the lower 20s, which means we likely will win this battle and it won’t end up too cold.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy. High of 37ºF / Wed. night: Cloudy, chance of snow. Low of 27ºF.
The Crusades are halting over the kingdoms of the northern Plains for now, and we look to the south for an alternate crusade army to invade the region. With a new king (trough of low pressure system) invading the southeast, some of the snow brigades will attempt to make their way into the southern KY kingdom Wednesday night.
Though this king will prove to topple the southeast kingdoms, we should be able to fight off this crusade…for now. The models have trended northward with the track of the system, so we shall see what transpires. At this point in time, minor accumulations look possible, if anything.
Temperatures with the associated attack will only be in the lower 30s, which isn’t cold compared to the last take over of the Arctic Crusades. Lows overnight should only dip into the upper 20s under cloudy skies.
Thursday: Continued cloudiness in the kingdom; snow chances continue. High of 32ºF / Thur. night: An Arctic Crusade attacks. Cloudy, with a low of 15ºF.
I knew the continued cloudiness was part of the plot…
The Arctic Crusade has been lurking over the northern Kingdoms, and looks to make its move overnight Thursday. Before this occurs, however, highs during the day Thursday will disguise the impending attack from the colder air. This will be occurring as scattered snow showers continue to litter the region.
Temps will be in the low to mid 30s under mostly cloudy skies throughout the day, so only minor accumulations are expected. The kingdom will think all is well…
Then it hits. The next Crusade in this series will be on the attack on Thursday night and our defenses will have nothing to do about it. Temps will fall into the lower teens by Friday morning, and will be aided by the White Brigade (isolated snow showers), to help plunge the kingdom into continued cold.
