Some Light Snow Possible Tonight

Good Thursday, everyone. We are coming off a major severe weather outbreak across the bluegrass state. Storms on Wednesday caused all kinds of wind damage with straight line gusts approaching 100mph at times. Now comes a small taste of winter weather tonight and early Friday.

This crazy pattern takes place on an historic weather day in Kentucky. March 2nd… That’s all you have to say and everyone knows exactly what you’re talking about. That fateful day back in 2012 produce deadly tornadoes across our region. Here’s a link to go back and see the live blog I was running that day… March 2nd Live Chat

2 days after that outbreak, it snowed across Kentucky. One could argue this recent outbreak is the most widespread and severe since March 2nd, 2012 and we also have snow in the forecast.

A period of light snow and flurries will work in here tonight and early Friday…

GFS snow

That can put down some coatings along the way. The GFS is usually too aggressive with totals…

The high res NAM is also indicating some coatings…

Milder air then returns for the weekend with temps hitting the 50s on Saturday and the 60s for Sunday. Temps may flirt with 70 Monday or Tuesday ahead of another strong cold front. The GFS is showing the potential for some decent storms late Tuesday and Wednesday…

Some of the other models are not as deep with that trough, thus have less cold air digging in and a weaker line of storms.

I will try to update things later today. Make it a good one and take care.
