First Call For Snowfall

Good evening, folks. Our snow threats for the coming days continue to show up a little better as we get closer. The first system rolling into town Thursday into Thursday night will switch from rain to wet snow quickly from northwest to southeast.

While it’s not going to snow for a very long time, some areas of moderate to heavy snow may set up. Given the wet ground and wet nature of the snow, I’m going to be a little reserved in the First Call For Snowfall…

Some areas of southeastern Kentucky can exceed those totals, and the models are now picking up on all this.

The GFS…

Hi Res NAM…

NAM…

Travel problems may develop later Thursday night into Friday morning as temps crash into the teens. A flash freeze is possible.

The weekend system continues to trend stronger with the GFS now taking a weak low toward eastern Kentucky, as a second low pops east of the mountains…

Late Saturday into Super Bowl Sunday could be nasty with snow and a mix of precipitation. An upgrade to a Threat is very possible tonight.

The GFS then brings a similar system our way a few days later…

Again, don’t get caught up with specifics… It’s all about the trends. 😉

I will update things on WKYT-TV at 11. See ya then.

Enjoy your evening and take care.
