Heavy Rain Returns By Monday

Good afternoon, everyone. We continue to track some light snow showers across the region, but our focus is about to turn back toward a lot of rain. The next week and change is likely to bring renewed high water issues to the bluegrass state.

Let’s start with the snow showers of the evening. This action is likely to be more prominent across the northern half of the state. Some hit and run accumulations will be possible and I can’t rule out a bit of sleet…

The next system moving in for late Sunday will slowly work to the south and east through Monday and Monday night. This is bad news across southeastern Kentucky because another 1″-2″ of rain will be possible.

Here are the model forecasts for this:

NAM

CANADIAN

EURO

That front stalls to our south through next week and allows several lows to develop along it. Watch for the models to get more aggressive with this scenario in the coming days.

There’s still the chance to end some of that as snow by Thursday and Friday, but only the Canadian is really excited about this…

After all that goes through, another storm system likely heads our way late next weekend into early the following week.

The 10 day rainfall forecast from the EURO is concerning…

Enjoy your evening and take care.

Another Light Snow Maker Moves In

Good Saturday, everyone. We have another round of light snow rolling across the state today, bringing some minor accumulations. As we look ahead to next week, we find this active pattern persisting with more rain AND snow chances showing up.

Let’s begin with the light snow of today. Accumulations range from a coating up to 1″ of snow for a few areas. There’s an outside chance for a locally higher amount, but this isn’t anything like what we had Thursday night.

Here’s the Winter Weather Advisory to start the day…

I will have your tracking toys in a bit.

Sunday looks much better as temps warm to near 50 in the south and 40s elsewhere. Clouds will increase with showers moving in late in the afternoon and evening. That sets the stage for some wet weather for Monday…

The potential for heavy rainfall is there and the heaviest may fall in the area we do not want to see it in… the southeast…

That same front sets up just to our south and may allow additional waves of low pressure along it. This could lead to more heavy rain and some winter weather…

Total rainfall numbers through next Friday are concerning…

Canadian

Euro

Ugh!

I will have updates later today. Until then, here are your early Saturday light snow trackers…
