Sunday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. We have a weak system crossing southern parts of the state through early Monday, bringing mainly rain to this part of the region. Things remain active after that with another system rolling in here by Wednesday, with the potential for a bigger system across the eastern US by next weekend.

Showers will continue to increase through the night across the southern half of Kentucky. I can’t rule out a wet flake or two, especially in the mountains.

Here are your radars…

Seasonally colder air comes in following that with the potential for a few flurries or a snow shower by Tuesday.

The next system moves in for Wednesday, but how much of an impact can we get from this? It’s a southern system rolling from west to east. Several of the models have been weakening this system quickly as it reaches Kentucky. The NAM is not among them and brings a nice swath of accumulating snow…

The European is among the models crushing this system as it moves into western Kentucky…

It’s not like there is a big cold high to the north of that to steer it south and crush this thing, so let’s see if any other models join the NAM party later this evening.

In terms of the weekend system, the European Model is also crushing this system way, way south…

That may very well be a case of the Euro holding on too long to energy coming from the southwestern part of the country. That’s one of the biggest biases of the model.

The GFS has a much bigger system rolling up the east coast with a second system diving in behind it…

The Canadian is similar…

We shall see, but it’s actually good to have some potential to track! 🙂

Enjoy the evening and take care.

Pattern Gets A Little More Active

Good Sunday, weather weenies. It’s another blustery day in the bluegrass state as we watch another weak system roll in here before the day is finished. This continues to be part of a pattern that’s becoming much more active as we close out January and roll into February. Can it deliver some TRUE winter weather before all is said and done? Yes. Will it? We shall see. 🙂

Our day starts with a few flurries and snow showers flying for some, but a brief break shows up by the middle of the day. That doesn’t last long as a weak system zips through the southern half of the state late today and early Monday. A little bit of light rain will be noted from this, but there’s the small chance for a couple of snowflakes to join in.

Here are your Sunday Fun Day radars…

Some snow showers and flurries may follow this system up into Tuesday as we wait to see how much of an impact we can get from the Wednesday system. You can see both on the NAM…

The EURO likes that system a little better and has a streak of light snow on top of us…

That brings us to the setup for next weekend. It’s one that favors a much bigger storm system somewhere in the eastern part of the country. That’s about all I can say at this point, but it’s something for winter weather lovers to keep an eye on.

The models all show something, but change from run to run…

I have no idea what impact, if any, this possible system will have on our weather. Just making sure y’all get that! 🙂

Updates come your way later today. Until then, have a good Sunday and take care.
