Monday Afternoon Winter Thoughts

Good afternoon, folks. We continue to track a cold front across Kentucky, bringing an increase in snow showers to the region. This is the opening act of what should be another prolonged period of winter weather.

As the cold front sweeps east today, temps drop in a hurry. Snow showers will then kick in behind the boundary, with light accumulations possible into tonight, especially across the east. A Winter Weather Advisory is our for far southeastern parts of the state. An inch or so is possible in these areas.

Watch for some slick spots on area roads later tonight and early Tuesday.

The end of the week system continues to get pushed by another system quickly moving in behind it for the weekend.

Rain develops on Thursday, with a transition to snow before the precipitation quickly moves away. Here’s the Canadian…

The GFS is similar…

Given the very quick movement of that system, light accumulations may be as good as it gets. Obviously, if it slows down, then accumulations with that will be higher.

The “push” comes from this system coming in as early as Saturday night…

That would make for a rather snowy Super Bowl Sunday in our part of the world.
