Friday Evening Thoughts

Good evening, everyone. Snow showers and slowly winding down this evening, but another light snow maker is rolling in here overnight into Saturday. This is a smaller system that can throw down additional light accumulations.

Evening snow showers will cover a few roads, especially in eastern Kentucky. Keep that in mind if you’re out traveling.

As the next system moves in, a Winter Weather Advisory is now out for areas of northern Kentucky into the Louisville metro…

That seems a little specific given the nature of this system, but may need to be expanded a bit farther east. Up to an inch or so of snow is possible for some, especially along and north of Interstate 64…

Hi Res NAM…

This has a potent little spin with it, so I’m wondering if there will be a little more of a line of snow working in. If that’s the case, then a quick hitting squall line looking setup takes place.

Sunday will clear out early on, but the next front drops in by Sunday night and Monday. With milder air ahead of this, rain is likely during this time.

That front does allow colder air to take control for next week, but this isn’t anything REALLY cold. It’s more seasonal than anything, but it could set the stage for a southern storm system with additional winter weather later in the week…

I leave you with your tracking toys for the evening…

Rounds Of Light Snow Continue

Good afternoon, everyone. Rounds of light snow continue to fall across many areas of the bluegrass state, but this will slowly wind down into the evening. After that, we will be looking at another light snow maker zipping in for Saturday.

The forecast worked out like a charm with widespread 1″-4″ snows for much of central and eastern Kentucky. I had a few 5″ reports out of northeastern Kentucky, so the overachiever showed up in a few spots. Hopefully, the kiddos of the weather world learned snowfall rates overcome ground temps every single time, especially with temps in the 20s.

Local accumulations this afternoon can reach a half to one inch in some of the heavier bursts of snow. As this tapers off, snow flurries will continue this evening. With temps below freezing and back into the 20s this evening and that will lead to another ice up of roads.

Winter Weather Advisories continue for some..

The setup for our next system isn’t as potent, but can throw down pockets of up to one inch of snow into Saturday…

Temps recover on Saturday with another rain maker dropping in from the northwest. That pushes a front to our south and this looks to hang around into next week. The cold air looks to be a little stronger than I originally thought it would and that could mean additional snow chances showing up…

Tracking A Blast Of Winter

Good Friday, everyone. Old Man Winter FINALLY makes a return visit to the bluegrass state in what is our most widespread snowfall since early November. And guess what? He throws a little more snow at us on Saturday. What in the wide world of weather is going on around here? 🙂

A Winter Weather Advisory is out for most of the region to start the day…

Here’s a quick update before we get your tracking toys:

  • A healthy swath of snow will be with us this morning across much of central and eastern Kentucky.
  • Snowfall totals are lighter in the west and heavier in the east. Areas of central and eastern parts of the state fall within the 1″ and 4″ range.
  • There’s the potential for a few areas to overachieve.
  • By afternoon, light snows taper to snow showers and flurries.
  • Travel will be rather messy this morning with some black ice under any snow that falls.
  • Another light snow maker will roll in here early Saturday and should be able to drop some additional light accumulations.

I will have updates later today so check back. Until then, I have you all set to do some Friday snow tracking…
