Friday Evening Thoughts

Good evening, everyone. We’ve made it to the weekend and we continue to watch our developing winter storm taking aim at parts of Kentucky. This continues to look like it has the best chance of impacting southern and southeastern Kentucky.

The Winter Storm THREAT continues for these areas…

Freezing rain and snow has the best chance of targeting these areas compared to anywhere else. It’s the same setup as we have been talking about for a while now, where the farther north and west you live, the lower the chance of seeing much at all.

The short range Canadian continues to try and change that. It has the freezing rain and snow much farther north than anything else…

The new version of the GFS is now similar with that…

Here are the areas getting snow and freezing rain on that model run… 

The afternoon run of the NAM changed course from the earlier run that had nothing hitting Kentucky. Here’s the area it shows across the southeast for snow and freezing rain…

The Hi Res NAM  is similar, but shows a better breakdown between snow and freezing rain…

Snow

Freezing rain 

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV at 11 tonight and that should include a first call map. I’ll also have the latest on KWC later tonight. Enjoy and take care.
