Tuesday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. We have a very light snow maker rolling our way and this will impact the region from late tonight through Wednesday night. No, it’s not a major impact and not everyone sees snow, but it’s worth talking about in this wimpy winter.

A touch of light snow and light rain shows up across western Kentucky later tonight and early Wednesday. Minor accumulations will be possible in this area. The initial band of light precip moves east and dissipates, but another band develops in the evening. That works through with light rain in the south and a stripe of light snow on top of that. That’s when some very light accumulations show up.

Here’s how the individual models are playing it all…

Hi Res NAM

EURO

The weekend system continues to feature the main low going way to our east and southeast, with a weaker system diving in from the northwest. That should make for some ugly by Saturday and Saturday night…

Temps behind this will surge on Super Bowl Sunday and will likely head deep into the 60s by Monday and Tuesday…

Enjoy your evening and take care.

Tuesday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. It’s a cold and cloudy day in the bluegrass state as a few flurries fly for some areas. This dreary sky will carry us through the net few days, all while we track a very light snow maker toward the region. This thing continues to look pretty darn wimpy for Wednesday.

Let’s start with this afternoon and roll ahead. Temps are in the 30s with a few flakes flying by. There’s actually a chance for a true snow shower later tonight across the north and east. This action is so light that regional radar won’t pick up on much of it…

Snow lovers are going to love the look of the radar to our west later today and tonight. Don’t let it fool you because that action will diminish as it moves into Kentucky. There’s still likely to be a swath of late night light snow in the west, but that wimps out as it rolls east on Wednesday. Another batch of light snow and flurries then work to the east  Wednesday night with some light accumulations

Hi Res NAM

Again, Some light accumulations will show up with this.

The weekend system continues to look like a close call. but we can’t get the two pieces of energy to hook up…

GFS

The Canadian is a little better look for some rain and snow around here…

Once that goes by, temps take a walk on the wild side. 60 degree highs surge in for a couple of days before an arctic front arrives by the middle of next week.

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV at 4pm then again on KWC this evening. Make it a good one and take care.

A Little Light Snow Possible For Some

Good Tuesday, everyone. It’s a cloudy and cold day across the state as a few flakes try and dot our skyline. As we look ahead, we are tracking a potential light snow maker for Wednesday, with an emphasis on the word “light”. Then, there’s another possible headache by the weekend.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Temps are in the 30s with cloudy skies and the potential for a few flurries. Areas across the south and far southeast may see some sun that boost temps a bit.

The system moving in from the west for Wednesday is one that weakens the farther east it gets. The NAM fam continues to bring a light snowfall to parts of the region, but differ on location.

The Hi Res NAM focuses a little stripe of snow across the south…

The NAM is a little farther north…

The GFS has nothing at all…

The EURO is somewhere between the Hi Res NAM and the GFS…

That’s pretty choppy looking and is indicative of how weak this system is as it moves in. Did I mention “light” is the name of the game for those who actually see some snow from this? 🙂

The weekend setup continues to find a big storm system trying to come out of the south and ride up the east coast. At the same time, a system is dropping into the Ohio Valley. If you want a big winter event around here, you want those two systems to hook up.

As of now, that’s not looking likely. Here’s the GFS…

The EURO continues to look different, but not as much as before…

I will have updates later today, so check back. Make it a great Tuesday and take care.
