Snow Showers Kick In

Good evening, everyone. Snow showers and flurries are ramping up just a bit this evening as our northwest wind kicks in. This will lay down some hit and run coatings across central and eastern Kentucky, with some better action in the southeast.

As temps hit freezing or below, watch for a few slick spots on bridges and overpasses.These flakes are likely to continue into Tuesday morning

Southeastern Kentucky continues to be in the Advisory/Warning area.

. Here are your tracking toys…

The late week system continues to look fairly weak, but could spit out a couple of chilly showers on Friday…

That’s a nice shot of cold coming behind that for late Friday into Saturday. Morning lows on Saturday are quite cold…

The next system is set to roll our way by early next week. This is a modified arctic front that may have a wave or two of low pressure along it. A lot of rain is likely from late Sunday into Monday, with the potential for some snow to show up behind it on Tuesday. Here’s what the Euro is seeing…

The Euro temp drop is big time and takes us from near 60 to the teens…

The GFS blows that through here with a bitterly cold air mass invading the country behind it…

Enjoy your evening and take care.

Monday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, folks. The morning round of winter weather put down some hit and melt coatings with a few inches across parts of the southeast. The marginal temps and wet ground did some work on the flakes. Now, we focus on the northwest flow kicking in. This will increase the snow showers and flurries through tonight and early Tuesday.

Southeastern Kentucky continues to be in the Advisory/Warning area…

The snow showers through Tuesday morning will put down more coatings across areas of central and eastern Kentucky. As the temps drop below freezing tonight, a couple of slick spots will develop.

Temps remain cold trough Tuesday…

Gusty winds make it feel much colder…

Another system dives through the Ohio Valley on Wednesday. Temps spike a bit ahead of this, then drop back down behind it. Rain and snow showers get close to the northeast as well.

Our next system shears out as it rolls eastward on Friday. That brings some chilly showers in to parts of Kentucky…

Temps are seasonally cold behind this for late Friday into Saturday.

The numbers jump late Sunday into Monday as we get ready for a modified arctic front to move in here from the northwest. This is likely to have a wave of low pressure or two along it, so we will have to see how that plays out. This could be a rain to snow setup…

The GFS is offering up some cold air behind it…

I will have another update later today, so check back. I leave you with your radars, that will struggle to see the light snow showers…

Have a good one and take care.

A Little Bit Of Snow Starts The Week

Good Monday, everyone. This second day of December is featuring another round of light snow and snow showers. With temps at or just above freezing, this is a wet snow that’s really only sticking to grassy and elevated surfaces. As we track what’s out there today, we are also looking ahead to a few other systems on the way.

Let’s begin with today’s light event and roll ahead. The wet snows will be flying early this morning and that may impact the morning commute in some areas. The accumulations are light with this and are showing up in streaks, meaning not everyone gets in on the action. Pockets of an inch or two will show up, with lots of coatings in between and this goes through Tuesday morning.

The day starts with a Winter Weather Advisory for parts of the region and a Winter Storm Warning for the high ground in the far southeast…

As our northwesterly flow kicks in, snow showers and flurries will likely continue through Tuesday morning across central and eastern Kentucky.

Temps are seasonally cold…

Gusty winds make it feel much colder…

A weak system works into the Ohio Valley on Wednesday and may offer a glancing blow of rain and snow to northeastern Kentucky. That will keep the below normal temperatures going through the rest of the week. That’s when a reinforcing shot of cold comes our way to start the weekend. That will be introduced by a system shearing out as it works east, bringing some chilly showers for Friday…

We will also keep an eye on the setup for early next week…

I will have your usual updates later today, so check back. Until then, I leave you with all your light snow tracking toys…
