Monday Evening Update

Good evening, everyone. As our big snowstorm continues to melt away, we start to focus more on the pattern ahead. It’s one that will throw a little more snow showers our way, but offers some hope for spring temps for a few days.

A few flurries or snow showers will be possible out there tonight, butt the best chance comes late Tuesday into Tuesday night. That’s when our northwesterly wind flow can put down some light accumulations. A few snow squalls may get into the mix, putting down some quick inch amounts. You can see that well on the Hi Res NAM…

Here’s regional radar for this evening’s snow showers…

The cold air hangs tough through Wednesday, with a slightly milder setup settling in for Thursday. This may lead us into another system for Friday. The GFS keeps bringing rain and some wet snow back in here…

Much milder air then moves in here to end the weekend and start next week, but another cold shot then comes in here by the middle of next week. That shows up well on the GFS Ensembles…

The European Model also has that transition back to cold, and it comes with a storm system…

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Enjoy the evening and take care.

Monday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Our major snowstorm is pulling away from southeastern Kentucky, leaving behind double digit snow totals in some areas. The heavy, wet snow caused power issues and brought down trees across parts of the region. This turned into our 4th major snowstorm since late February of 2015. Don’t tell me we don’t get big snows around here. 😉

I’m watching the northwest skies over the next few days, as snow showers dive in. The first batch arrives later this afternoon and evening…

The next round comes into the region late Tuesday into Tuesday night and should be more widespread. This has a chance to put down some light accumulations. Here’s the GFS for that time…

The Hi Res NAM is a little more streaky, but shows local snow squalls can really put it down…

Temps remain very cold through early Thursday, but rebound some by the end of the week. That said, the GFS is throwing a monkey wrench into things, bringing a rain/snow mix by Friday…

#teamspring continues to take a beating!

I will have an update on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm and with another update later this evening. Make it a good one and take care.

Major Winter Storm Starts The Day

Good Monday, folks. A significant winter storm is impacting much of Kentucky to start the day. This is putting down a tremendous amount of heavy, wet snow into parts of the region, and is causing all kinds of travel issues. It’s a storm we have tracked for nearly a week, putting out a Winter Storm THREAT well in advance to get you ready for the impact.

Some areas will pick up 6″ to 10″ of wet snow before the storm pulls away early today, but the winter weather isn’t finished with us just yet. A few snow showers and flurries will filter back in here this evening and tonight, but a much more pronounced snow shower/squall maker moves in later tomorrow.

This system from late Tuesday into Tuesday night can put down some light accumulations…

Once we get past Wednesday, much milder air will begin to take over. That will also bring some showers and thunderstorms our way into the weekend and that may kick off another VERY active and wet period. Let’s hope the 2 week rain totals from the GFS aren’t anywhere close to verifying…

We will get into all that later today. For now, let’s track the major winter storm…
