Winter Storm THREAT Continues

Good evening, gang. We are wrapping up the final full day of winter, with mild temps and thunderstorms. Spring arrives on Tuesday with a Winter Storm THREAT for Tuesday and Wednesday. That’s when snow develops across much of Kentucky.

In the short-term, showers and storms are working eastward across the state, with a few strong storms possible in the south. Local severe weather can’t be ruled out along the Tennessee border…

My overall thoughts for the snow potential haven’t changed. Moderate to locally heavy snow will wrap around low pressure just to our east late Tuesday and Wednesday. We will have some melting that cuts into amounts, but here’s the First Call For Snowfall…

I’ve highlighted up to 5″ amounts across parts of north-central Kentucky, where the wrap around may be heaviest. This is a general 1″-4″ snowfall for most of the state, with most coming Tuesday night and early Wednesday. We will likely see widespread cancellations and delays on Wednesday.

A Winter Weather Advisory has already been issued for much of central and eastern Kentucky…

Look for that to be expanded much farther west, with the potential for an upgrade for a few counties.

A check of the forecast models show the European Model continuing to show some pretty hefty totals…

The Hi Res NAM is similar…

Our Winter Storm Threat continues, and I will have a new call for snowfall on WKYT-TV at 11pm. Happy Spring! 🙂

Enjoy the evening and take care.
