The Hits Keep Coming

Good Sunday, everyone. We have another system rolling across the state today, bringing a brief mix before rain takes over. This is the first in a series of systems on the way for the next week or so, bringing a renewed high water threat to the region.

Our Sunday starts with a touch of frozen precipitation for parts of central and eastern Kentucky. I can’t rule out a little bit of a glaze early on, so keep that in mind if travelling early. Showers quickly take over, with a rumble of thunder possible…

It’s not going to be a washout kind of a day by any means, but the rain may be steadier in the east and southeast. A healthy temp spread will show up from northwest to southeast and the colder air to the north moves in for Monday. That may mean a light snow shower or flurries.

The next system will roll in here later Tuesday and will have a lot of moisture with it. With cold air initially in place, can we get this to start out as snow or a mix? The NAM certainly thinks so as it develops a healthy snow band before the heavy rain kicks in…

The new version of the GFS has a similar idea, but to a lesser extent…

The soon to be defunct GFS has a touch of freezing rain on the leading edge…

From there, at least two more systems will follow a similar path later in the week through next weekend. This sets the stage for a lot of rain to fall from our region into the south. This could cause flooding issues to develop from Kentucky into areas of the Tennessee Valley and deep south…

I won’t be able to hook you up with an update until this evening, so be patient with a weatherdude. 🙂

Have a great Sunday and take care.
