Shiver me timbers

Posted By on Mon, Aug 24, 2009 at 3:05 PM

How slow is it today? Slow enough to talk about the weather. Got this lovely item from the Channel 7 weather blog.

Bobby Powers had a low last night in Benton of 55.6 degrees.  I think it's possible to do it again next week, maybe even cooler.


The models are coming together with a blast of cool air again Sunday into Monday of next week.  Another strong area of Canadian high pressure looks to make a move south.  The 12Z European model is jumping on the idea and so is the GFS.  As a matter of fact, the GFS is showing a high next Monday of 83 and a low of 61.  Since these numbers are in the long term, the model tries to trend towards climatology.  This means there's a chance these numbers will be too warm.  There's the chance we'll have highs in the 70s and lows well into the 50s.  I don't want everyone to get the impression this is a done deal, but it's looking good at this point.

Bring on the 12Z and the GFS.

    Silence so far from Republican politicians such as Leslie Rutledge on achievement of their long-stated dream, death to the Affordable Care Act. Could that be because most people now understand what a good thing President Obama did with its passage? Update: Rutledge applauds and offers empty promise of coverage.
