A Quick Saturday Update

Good afternoon, folks. Your friendly weatherdude only has a short time to update, but I wanted to drop by for an afternoon quickie to get you caught up on the pattern ahead. A pattern that will feature dangerously cold temps and wind chills in the week ahead.

As expected, light snow last night and this morning put down enough snow to cause some travel issues. Another system tries to do the same this evening, especially across the northern half of the state…

The arctic front is still on schedule for a Monday night arrival time in the bluegrass state. The wave of low pressure along the front shows up one run then disappears the next, then shows up… You get the idea. It’s a computer model and that happens.

The NAM lost the wave this morning then found it again a few hours later. That wave allows for a decent snowfall in central and eastern Kentucky Monday night and Tuesday…

The early day run of the European Model has the wave, but is flatter and farther south than most of the earlier runs…

Snow on the Gulf Coast? Still, the model suggests accumulating snows for much of the region, with the greatest potential in the southeast.

The Canadian Model is similar with this first system, but the thing I like about this model is the one right behind it…

The GFS is still too progressive with the arctic front and wave of low pressure, but it’s better than it was and is also picking up on that system behind it…

Bitterly cold temps come in behind all this for the middle and end of the week. Below zero lows are likely to show up…

Wind chill advisories and warnings will likely be needed from Wednesday through Friday of this week. It may feel -5 to -25 during this time…

That’s some dangerous stuff, folks.

I will try to throw you another update after the UK game. Have a good one and take care.
