Extended Period of Cold... Lake Snows and Waterspouts

October 18, 2013; 10:00 AM ET


Once the cold gets in, it will stick around through much of next week across the eastern part of the country with the greatest deviation from normal across the Great Lakes. We have one shot of snow per the snow map below Sunday night into Monday followed by lake-effect snow as the cold comes across the lakes next week. We even have a shot at waterspouts from late Tuesday through Friday as the coldest air comes in aloft.

Some of the longer-range models are hinting at shots of cold air through early December with deviations below 3 degrees. The CFS seems to be bullish on the cold weather sticking around and even says that a snowstorm in the Mississippi Valley and Ohio is possible around or after Thanksgiving. It keeps the Southeast warm through the period which is why we end up with a storm cutting from Texas to the Northeast per the CFS.

I am throwing these ideas out there today because while we were in a period when the weather seems to be a month behind, it now appears the pattern is quickly catching up to the season and may even go a month ahead.
