Dave Murray’s Latest STL forecast and weather disco…THURSDAY…October 9, 2014

*** This is not a pretty picture as we deal with an extended, wet and cool October’s weather pattern…playing into the hands of the long range outlook. There will be concerns about the playoff baseball games***

THURSDAY:

Periods of rain and storms…heavy rain at times
WINDS: East 5-15 M.P.H.
HIGH: 69 degrees

THURSDAY NIGHT:

Periods of rain and storms…heavy rain at times
WINDS: Northeast 5-10 M.P.H.
LOW: 52 DEGREES.

FRIDAY:

Periods of rain showers…cooler
WINDS: Northeast 5-15 M.P.H.
HIGH: 58 DEGREES

No all day rains but look for periods of rain showers Saturday, Saturday night, Sunday and Sunday night and into Monday and Tuesday.

THE WEATHER DISCO:

The pattern shift is in place…the northwest flow shuts down and turns zonal…west to east…typically bringing a rather unsettled pattern of weather with an interesting wrinkle…the pick up of the moisture of what is left of pacific hurricane Simon…this surge of moisture comes into play Thursday and Thursday night and should bring a rather impressive batch of rain and even some wind…several inches of rain possible and that is not all…the wet pattern gets locked in with waves of rain showers and chilly temperatures over the weekend and into early next week.
