Tracking Winter Weather To Begin February

Good Friday and welcome to the month of February. We are kicking off the month with a touch of snow and ice across parts of the bluegrass state. This action is fairly light, but it’s having an impact on the early day commute. Once we get through this, we have a milder setup on the way, before more winter weather works back in.

A Winter Weather Advisory is out for much of the state to start the day…

Light accumulations of snow and freezing rain will cause slick travel conditions, so be prepared for that if you have to be driving early on. Here’s regional radar tracking the action.

I will have your traffic cams in a bit.

Let’s talk about the pattern coming in after this. Milder air will surge in for the weekend, which looks pretty good as a whole. Highs on Saturday may hit 50, with a 60 waiting in the wings for Sunday. Winds will be super gusty, but it’s a milder wind from the southwest.

That same southwest wind will cause an increase in moisture, leading to an increase in rain and some rumbles of thunder as early as Monday. Locally heavy rains are possible from Monday through Wednesday as our temps stay very mild. Rainfall numbers continue to increase during this time.

An arctic front then moves in later in the week. At the same time, waves of low pressure may try and develop along the boundary near our region. That could bring winter weather back in here. The Euro continues to show the possibility…

I will have updates later today. Until then, here are your traffic cams to show how road conditions are looking…
