A Touch Of Ice Possible Thursday

Good afternoon, everyone. Snow showers and flurries are still flying across parts of southeastern Kentucky as cold northwest winds continue. As we go into a small break from winter, there’s still the chance a touch of winter weather kicks off that windy and wet break.

Before I get to that, let me throw the regional radar your way to track the flakes in the east…

I’ve talked and talked about the potential for tomorrow’s light rain to start out as a touch of sleet or freezing rain. The models weren’t supporting this, but I chose to live in the real weather world and not the virtual weather world. 😉 Now, the models are trying to get into CB frame of mind and are showing some light ice in the north…

Hi Res NAM

With low-level cold, dry air in place, a brief period of freezing rain or sleet is possible before we go over to plain old light rain as temps rise.

Rain and a few thunderstorms are likely from Friday through Saturday as low pressure wraps up across the Mississippi Valley and heads toward the Great Lakes. Heavy rainfall and high winds of 40-50mph are possible during this time…

A few strong storms are possible, especially across the west.

Colder air seeps in behind this system by Monday as the next system tries to develop. We are seeing a split in the modelling on how to handle any potential storm system early next week. The GFS goes back and forth with the track of any potential storm. The current run as it on top of us with likely a rain to snow setup…

The Canadian pushes this storm farther south and east and is much weaker. It basically crushes the storm with arctic air flooding in from the northwest…

We shall see how this works out, but it appears to be a rain to snow situation in my eyes.

Very cold air moves in behind that as we watch for a much bigger storm system to take a southern track toward the end of next week…

I will try to update things later today, so check back. Make it a good one and take care.
