Snow Shower Thoughts

Good evening to all. It’s a 3 update kinda day, so that must mean Old Man Winter is about to throw some action our way. The final week of November has been highlighted here for a cold air outbreak with snow chances and it looks like the Old Man (not talking about me :)) is ready to deliver the goods.

I’m not going to rehash everything I’ve said already today and in the days before, but I will hit the high notes:

  • A cold front sweeps across the state tonight with showers and isolated storms ahead of it.
  • Temps crash behind the front with readings hitting the low 30s by morning.
  • Rain changes to a period of light snow behind the front.
  • Wraparound snow showers and squalls will be common as the day wears on. This action then continues into Monday night across central Kentucky, then in the east through Tuesday night. Light accumulations are likely.
  • Slick roads are possible, especially after dark Monday. Can we squeeze out a few school delays or cancellations on Tuesday? Yep.
  • Temps will be frigid during this time and may not get out of the 20s for highs on Tuesday. Wind chills are even colder.

Let’s take a look at the NAM so you can get good idea of how the wraparound snow showers give way to additional snow showers on that strong northwest flow…

Some areas can pick up an inch of snow out of this scenario. The forecast¬†models actually have some pockets of 1″-2″…

Hi Res NAM

I may even put together a First Call For Snowfall map later tonight.

Something else that deserves a shout out… The wind chill numbers. These digits are absolutely frigid for November…

I leave you with your radars to track the blizzard moving to our northwest and the rain moving into Kentucky…

Enjoy the rest of the evening and take care.
