A Close Call For Southeast Snowfall

Good afternoon, everyone. It’s a nice, crisp February day in progress across the bluegrass state as we turn our attention to a southern system. This will take a snow swipe at far southern and southeastern Kentucky on Thursday. That’s a very close call for a little snowfall.

The models are showing the fine line we are walking with this system.

The NAM is the biggest lover of snow in the southeast…

The Euro is similar but a little farther north…

The GFS wants little part of that and is much wimpier with the entire setup…

The Canadian is caught between…

Areas of southeastern Kentucky can put a little bit of light snow on the ground tomorrow, but this is a super close call with no snow at all.

For the rest of the region, temps will be on the cold side with temps in the 30s and a mix of sun and clouds. That sets the stage for a very cold night with reading in the teens by Friday morning.

Saturday looks like a really good day. After a cold start, temps make a run at 50 with sunny skies. The next system rolls in here Sunday with rain increasing from west to east. That takes us into Monday, with another system rolling in by the middle of next week. That one has more of a winter look…

I won’t have an update this evening because I have to be out of town, but I will update things later tonight. Make it a good one and take care.

Thursday Light Snow Potential For Some

Good Wednesday, folks. Colder air is showing up today, but this air only grows colder over the next couple of days. That’s also when a southern system tries to bring a little snow to parts of southern and southeastern Kentucky.

As all of this is happening, the pattern is threatening to take on a full blown winter look as we wrap up February and roll into March. 🙁

Let me begin with today and push forward. A mix of clouds and sun will show up as temps reach the 40s. If clouds are a little thicker in some spots, temps may struggle even more.

The Thursday system zips by to our south, but comes just close enough to throw a little light snow into far southern and southeastern Kentucky. It looks like the far southeast has the chance to put a little snow on the ground.

The NAM and GFS are very similar in showing this area getting the best shot at some snow…

The EURO is also on board for a little light snow in the south and southeast..

Folks, that’s a really close call for the southeast, so it wouldn’t take much to keep all the snow to the south of the state line.

For the rest of the region, a mix of sun and clouds will be noted with temps in the 30s for highs. That sets the stage for a cold Friday morning as temps reach the teens.

Saturday’s weather looks really good as temps make a run at 50 with a mostly sunny sky. Clouds roll in Saturday night ahead of our next system. This brings rain in here on Sunday, but there’s a small chance for a bit of a mix. This takes us into Monday and will be followed by another system a few days later. That one may take on more of a winter look as it unleashes a really cold pattern…

The end of February through the first part of March can feature more winter weather than we had the entire winter. Because… Of course it can! 🙁

I will have another update later today. Make it a good one and take care.
