Good evening, everyone. Light snow continues to target southeastern Kentucky, bringing slick travel to several counties. We’ve had reports of enough accidents to close down a road or two until road crews could help out. As that action winds down, we focus on a busy pattern with more winter weather threats ahead.
For the latest on what’s happening and to see some cool snow pics, follow along with my @kentuckyweather twitter feed.
As we look down the road, we are finding a very active pattern. A system moves in on Friday with the potential for a touch of freezing rain on the leading edge of chilly showers. Another system may bring some light rain and light snow by Saturday night, but the main system of interest comes Sunday night into Monday.
You can see all three systems on the Euro…

Enjoy the evening and take care.

Good afternoon, everyone. Cold temps continue to take control of the pattern and is catching the precipitation in the southeast, switching it over to snow. This will increase into the evening as a wave of low pressure works along the front.
As expected, it’s the southeastern areas of the state dealing with the best accumulating snow potential through tonight. I will have all your tracking toys in a bit.
The next system to track is mainly a rain maker as it arrives Thursday night and Friday, but it may begin as a period of freezing rain…

Good Tuesday, everyone. We have a blast of winter weather pushing into parts of Kentucky today. This comes as temps crash behind an arctic front blowing across the state. This is the first in a series of potential winter weather makers showing up over the next week.
Let’s kick things off with the current winter weather maker. This one continues to focus the greatest winter weather threat across the southeastern part of the state. That’s where accumulating snow is likely through tonight. This looks to come in a few waves during this time.
There’s going to be one heck of a sharp cutoff on the western and northwestern side of the snow. Where that sets up is likely a play by play call.
Here’s my latest stab at the snowfall…
Once this clears out of the state later tonight, we get a few days of decent weather, then it’s back into another system by Friday. That one may start as a touch of freezing rain before going to rain. A second system brings rain and snow in here Saturday into Saturday night, with a much bigger system soon thereafter. This is a setup that can bring all modes of winter weather to Kentucky.
