Winter Weather Advisory Tonight

Good evening, folks. As temps crash from west to east, a band of light frozen precipitation will develop tonight across central and eastern Kentucky. This may cause some travel issues to develop just in time for the Monday Morning commute.

A Winter Weather Advisory is out for parts of central and northeastern Kentucky…

A light glaze and a small accumulation of snow may combine to do some slipper work on area roads. In pouring over the latest data, that advisory may need to be expanded into the rest of eastern and southeastern Kentucky. Pockets of freezing rain may wind up being more prominent in the southeast, than anywhere else. That would be a double whammy for areas still dealing with widespread flooding.

Here are your evening trackers…

Sunday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. The heavy rain train is slowly working out of Kentucky, with a taste of winter coming in behind it. That may lead to some pockets of travel issues by Monday morning. As we look ahead to the week ahead, I see another flood threat taking shape.

Let’s begin with the setup out there today. A 30-35 degree temperature drop is occurring behind the cold front working east. As that cold air moves in, things begin to slow down in terms of precipitation. That’s great news, as parts of southeastern Kentucky have picked up more than 5″ of rain. Extensive flooding is underway in many areas.

Here are the radars to track the remaining rains…

Cold air continues to press in through tonight, with a band of wintry weather developing across the central and east…

That may put down some VERY light accumulations in a few spots, leading to some slick spots developing. Overall, this really isn’t a big deal.

Leftover showers will be noted for Tuesday, but another increase in rain begins Wednesday and carries us through Friday. Heavy rain and thunderstorms will be likely, with a switch to snow possible by late Friday. This will be followed up by a few more active systems. Here’s how the Canadian sees it…

The GFS…

A lot of moisture may fall during this time. The GFS has some 5″-6″ rains showing up over the next week and change…

I’m not liking the looks of this pattern over the next few weeks. We have mentioned it before on here, but Kentucky is long overdue for a decent river flooding event.

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.
