High Impact Winter Storm Moves Away

Good Sunday, everyone. Our winter storm is finally winding down after producing high water producing rain, heavy snow, blowing snow, freezing rain, sleet, whiteout conditions and a major temperature drop. That pretty much sums up our storm system. 🙂

Many roads are covered with snow and ice to start our Sunday and travel is not recommended. Blowing snow and small drifts are even an issue in several areas. The steady falling snow tapers off in eastern Kentucky this morning, but a few flurries or snow showers will be possible through the day.

There’s also another weak system diving in from the northwest later today. That may have a band of light snow with it as it approaches the western half of the state. Highs today are mid teens in the north and low 20s south. Wind chills are in the single digits or near zero all day. Actual lows tonight reach the single digits and may head close to zero in the north.

I will have your tracking tools in a bit.

Folks, I have not been shy about where I thought the second half of winter would take us. With our second winter storm in a week now behind us, we are off to a good start to this harsh pattern. Well, I think this is the tip of the iceberg, no pun intended.

Our next system arrives Tuesday as a modified arctic front approaches. Temps do spike ahead of this with some showers developing by Tuesday night. As the front slides through, a wave of low pressure develops along the front and throws another round of winter weather at us Wednesday and early Thursday. That will be followed by another snow maker with a true arctic front on Friday…

That is followed up by a system that can REALLY dig in here by Saturday and it has another system right on its heels…

This pattern ain’t playing around! I will get more into all that later today. Until then, I have you all set to track the latest storm out of town…
