Wednesday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. We continue to say goodbye to this latest round of winter weather, with some much better stuff on the way for the next few days. Unfortunately, this won’t last into the upcoming weekend, with more ugly conditions ahead.

Skies will stay partly cloudy for our Thursday with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s.

Friday continues to look like a winner of a weather day with a mix of sun and clouds and highs flirting with 60 in some areas…

That’s ahead of a rainy system moving in for Saturday as temps flirt with the 50 degree mark. Locally heavy rains are possible across the southeast.

Much colder air then filters in on Sunday, as temps crash to freezing or below from west to east…

That sets the stage for rain to a bit of a wintry mix…

As of now, this doesn’t look like a huge deal.

I’m seeing a lot of back and forth in the temperature pattern over the next few weeks, and that should make for an active storm track in our region. While this can bring additional winter weather threats, it’s also loaded with mostire. Here’s the two week precipitation forecast from the GFS…

Have a great evening and take care.

Wednesday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Our storm system continues to pull away, with some leftover light snow and a wintry mix working through the region. Icy roads are still a big problem for parts of the region, so stay safe out there. Also, watch for icy sidewalks.

Track the leftover action out of town…

A few snow showers and flurries will then fly across parts of northern and northeastern Kentucky later tonight, but this doesn’t look like a big deal.

Friday looks like the best weather day of the week, by far! Highs reach deep into the 50s and may flirt with 60…

That’s ahead of a weekend storm system that brings heavy rain back into the region by Saturday, with a big drop in temps and a mix to follow…

Enjoy your afternoon and take care.

Tracking A Messy Storm

Good Wednesday, everyone. Our winter storm continues to push across Kentucky, bringing everything from a flood threat to the possibility of ice and snow. I have you all set to do some tracking.

Here’s a quick recap of how things may play out:

  • The best chance for significant amounts of freezing rain continues to show up from western Kentucky into northern parts of the state.
  • Some freezing rain amounts may reach .25″ to .50″ in the north.
  • The Lexington metro looks like the dividing line between ice and just plain rain.
  • Snow shows up across the north, with the Covington area having the best shot at a few inches or more.
  • The flood threat continues across the rest of central and eastern Kentucky. Some amounts of 2″+ may show up.
  • This system winds down quickly from west to east this afternoon, with some light snow at the end.
  • Watch for a few snow showers to develop tonight across the east.
  • Your friendly weatherdude continues to be #teamspring. 🙂
