Super Bowl Evening Update

Happy Super Bowl. Another round of light snow is working across the state this evening and will put down some light accumulations. As temps crash into the teens overnight, slick spots may develop on area roads.

I will have your tracking tools in a moment.

I want to focus a little more on the late Tuesday/early Wednesday storm system. The European Model keeps showing a healthy band of freezing rain setting up across the state…

The European has an icy friend in the Canadian…

Here’s hoping they are both overplaying that threat.

Let’s get back to tracking the evening action…

Another Light Snow Maker Tonight

Good Super Bowl Sunday, everybody. The forecast continues to play out as we’ve talked about, with our morning snows going over to rain, and another round of light snow tonight. This can put down additional light accumulations, causing some travel issues.

It’s a system coming in from the west-northwest and is carrying some very cold air with it. Light snow develops this evening and continues into early Monday across the east. With temps dropping into the teens, slick roads may develop.

Widespread coatings to an inch will be possible. Here’s the Hi Res NAM…

The GFS…

Regional radar will help you track this into Kentucky…

Another light snow maker brushes the state Monday night, especially in the north. A much stronger system then targets us late Tuesday into early Wednesday. This will bring a swath of rain, freezing rain and snow across the Commonwealth…

We are walking a very fine line with temperatures on this one, with a degree or two being the difference between heavy rain and significant freezing rain.

I’ll update this evening. Enjoy the afternoon and take care.

Tracking A Morning Mix and Mess

Good Sunday, everyone. We have a nice little system working across the state this early today, bringing snow, rain and a combo of the two. This system is part of a trend, with two more winter weather threats on the way for the upcoming week.

Here’s a quick recap of how today tries to play out:

  • Early this morning is going to be very interesting across parts of central and eastern Kentucky. The initial precipitation starts as rain, then goes to snow for some areas. The heavier the precipitation, the better the snow potential for any one location.
  • Those getting in on the snow can see it come down pretty darn hard for a while, leading to a slushy accumulation.
  • The greatest potential for this happening is across north central and northeastern parts of the state. There’s the chance for a thumper in a few spots
  • Any area is fair game for, at least a coating, but that doesn’t mean EVERYONE gets snow. 😉
  • The precipitation goes over to light rain later in the day, then back to some light snow tonight.

Following this is a slightly stronger system arriving later Tuesday into Wednesday. One band of light snow may move in early Tuesday, with the actual storm system arriving later. This should put the fence right on top of Kentucky.
