Hello! It has been a hot second! Let's keep the wrap-up short and fun. Family is doing well. Evan is starting to sit well and scoot a little. Summer is very encouraging of him to start running around the house. She smothers him with love. Evan is a VERY happy baby and started eating foods. He does not like oatmeal, but was passive with the rice food. Peas were ok, but he SLAMMED his carrots yesterday. Excited to feed him more carrots today. He was diving his head into the spoon by the end of eating yesterday.
Summer is getting better and better at swimming. She still can't float very well... Welcome to the party! I still can't float either. My legs always sinks.
Speaking of legs... Well... Feet. I had my left foot looked at after the two issues. I have been given the yellow light to start running again, but have to be careful and monitor it.
Summer and I went out for a run last Saturday.
It was nice seeing all my running peeps with Columbus Westside Running Club.
I did get to go watch the Blue Jackets last Thursday with my lovely wife. Kurt Ludlow asked for us to join his wife and him. It was a LOT of fun.
I have also been experimenting with new season flavors of lip balm using different essential oils. I will have those on BalmByBuck.com
soon! So I have that on my agenda. Then I have two presentations coming up. The first is with AAA and the second is at the Ohio State Severe Weather Symposium.
We have quite a lot of weather to breakdown for the coming days. Today will be partly cloudy, cold, and breezy. A few spotty early snow showers then just a few flurries and fairly dry today. Tonight a system passes by to our north and some light snow showers possible north and flurries for the rest of us possible. No significant accumulation expected over the next 36 hours, but a few snowflakes at times. Highs in the upper 20s today and stiff breeze making it feel like the single digits & teens most of the day.
Thursday the winds will be light with temps warming into the mid 30s and partly cloudy skies. The system we have been tracking all week looks to clip Ohio with the biggest impact being Southern Ohio. So Central Ohio & Columbus may be right on the edge of this and watch most of the action pass by to the south. Snow will move in late Thursday and Thursday night. By Friday morning the temps will be cold enough for snow and as we warm to a high near 40 then it will transition over to a rain/snow mix. Dry air moves in pretty quickly so it may limit the amount of time we will see the mix and most of the system may be mainly snow. As far as accumulations, by midday Friday, far Southern Ohio, near the Ohio River, may see 2-4" then Southern portions of Central Ohio will see lower totals. One rogue model is (still) pushing this a tad to the north, so be sure to check back in to the forecast on Thursday for any adjustments to the track. So slick/wet for parts of Ohio for Friday's roads. then warming and roads should be in decent shape by late Friday.
Then we get to the weekend. A very strong system will move across the Ohio Valley Saturday and Sunday. Winds will pick up Saturday and stay strong late Saturday into early Sunday before easing up later in the day. We could see wind gusts 40-50 mph. The winds will help push in warmer air and we will see temps in the 50s for late Saturday and early Sunday before the colder air races in and temps fall Sunday PM. Rain is also likely for Saturday afternoon, evening, overnight and into early Sunday. A few lighter rain showers possible Sunday, but most of the heaviest rain will be Saturday evening and night.
High pressure will bring more sunshine for early next week and cool temps. Have a good one!
