Happy Halloween! The forecast continues to remain on target with a blast of winter weather blowing into the bluegrass state. The action begins this evening and continues into Saturday across central and eastern Kentucky. I have the blog set up for all your tracking needs.
Some quick thoughts:
- The big drop in temps will take place behind the front that passes through here late afternoon and early evening.
- Winds will really crank behind the front with 35mph gusts possible this evening. That’s when temps drop into the 30s and snow mixes in with the rain.
- The models are still VERY enthusiastic in developing a band of moderate to heavy snow across central and eastern Ky overnight into early Saturday.
- Lingering snow showers and flurries will last through Saturday in the east and southeast.
- Some slushy accumulations are likely across much of the area into Saturday morning. Yes, we will have a lot of melting snow, but it should fall hard enough to overcome some of that. Throw in temps going below freezing overnight and light accumulations look good, especially on the grass and elevated surfaces. Here’s the latest call…
