Winter Weather Advisory Update

Good evening, folks. Rounds of light snow continue to push across the bluegrass state, putting down light accumulations. Many areas are now under a Winter Weather Advisory through early Wednesday as travel conditions go downhill overnight.

Farther down the road, it’s still all eyes on the weekend storm system and the impact it may have on Kentucky.

Let’s get you caught up on the Winter Weather Advisory…

Lots of coatings to 1″ of snow will show up, but some embedded bands of 1″-2″ will be possible. Again, not everyone sees more than a coating of snow from this, but delays and cancellations are likely later tonight and early Wednesday.

The weekend storm system continues to show up on very well on the models, but the track and evolution are still in flux. This is being hampered by the issues with the new version of the GFS. I haven’t had a full run of it since last night, so that’s making it a little tough because the model has actually been doing very well.

The current GFS continues to show a similar track and evolution to what the new GFS has been showing…

Here’s the overall snow map from that particular run…

The average from the GFS Ensembles isn’t too different…

The individual members are still showing a decent spread…

The operational European Model continues to absolutely hammer the southern half of Kentucky into areas of Tennessee and the Carolinas…

The average from the 51 member European Ensembles from WeatherBell is farther north and more expansive…

As you can see, we still have a lot of work to do to see how much of an impact this storm has on the weather across Kentucky. It’s still too early for me to say, with any certainty, how this plays out for the bluegrass state.

I will have a potential map for you later tonight and on WKYT-TV starting at 11. I leave you with your evening light snow tracking toys…
