Tracking Our Winter Storm

Good evening, folks. Our the winter part of our winter storm is now taking over from west to east. A band of heavy snow is covering roads in western parts of the sate and that’s a trend that continues to the east this evening into overnight.

  • A steady band of moderate to heavy snow works from west to east across the state through tonight. That band of snow gets lighter across eastern Kentucky.
  • A swath of significant snow is likely to fall across parts of western and central Kentucky. That’s oriented from southwest to northeast.
  • Snowfall totals won’t be in consistent swaths, with underachieving streaks and overachieving streaks showing up.
  • Wind gusts of 35-45mph will be likely and that may create near blizzard conditions for a few hours this evening into the wee hours of Sunday for some areas.
  • With temps dropping through the 20s and into the teens, a flash freeze is likely. Throw snow on top of that and travel conditions go downhill quickly. I would not be surprised if a few roads are briefly closed.
  • Snow showers taper to flurries on Sunday as temps struggle to get out of the teens. Wind chills will be single digits to near zero at times.
  • A quick hitting flake maker may zip into western Kentucky Sunday evening.

 

I have you all set to track the winter storm…
