A Frigid Friday Morning Ahead

Good evening, friends. Cold temps continue to move in behind our little band of light snow moving out of southeastern Kentucky. After a frigid Friday morning, things look much better into much of the upcoming weekend. From there, things get interesting next week.

Temps tonight drop into the teens in most areas, but wind chills may briefly drop into the high single digits. Afternoon sun boosts temps into the upper 30s and low 40s.

Saturday looks AWESOME. 20s will start the day, but temps tickle 50 to end it. Sunny skies will be noted.

Clouds increase on Sunday as readings reach the 50s. Rain moves in from west to east during the evening, setting the stage for a soggy Monday…

Colder air sweeps in behind this with another low pressure developing and impacting our region by Wednesday and Thursday. This should bring, at least, some winter weather our way…

That’s a lot of cold air coming in behind that as we close to books on February and roll into March.

Enjoy the evening and take care.

Thursday Midday Thoughts

Good afternoon, everyone. Snow is grazing parts of southern and southeastern Kentucky and it’s putting down light accumulations. This is a fast-moving system that will be in and out before the evening is over. Behind it comes some better looking weather into the weekend, but a winter pattern is lurking next week.

Let’s start this midday party with the snow potential across southeastern Kentucky, A few schools have already called off early because of the snow moving in and traffic cams show the snow accumulating. Still, there is no Winter Weather Advisory anywhere in southeastern Kentucky as of this update…

I mean, 4″ of snow couldn’t even get Jackson to issue an Advisory earlier this winter, so a coating to 2″ sure won’t. (Insert eye roll an cue the trolls)  Baiting these people is way, way too easy! 😉

Here are your tracking tools for the day…

Frigid temps move in tonight with readings dropping into the teens. Wind chills may briefly reach single digits by tomorrow morning.

Friday afternoon looks awesome with a mix of sun and clouds and temps closing in on the low 40s. Saturday looks like the best weather day of the week and for the next week. Highs make a run at 50 with some sun.

Clouds increase Sunday ahead of our next system. That throws rain in here from west to east by Sunday evening and continues into Monday. Modified arctic air comes in behind this as another system rolls through behind it, bringing the potential for mid-week winter weather.

The models are going toward a cold and wintry look to end the month…

I will have the latest on WKYT starting at 4pm then again on KWC this evening. Have a good one and take care.

Tracking Some Southern Light Snow

Good Thursday, everybody. A round of light snow is grazing southern and southeastern Kentucky today and may put down some light accumulations. Dry weather comes in behind this, but the overall pattern looks to take on much more of a winter look as we close February and roll into March. #teamspring ain’t happy!

A band of light snow skirts across southern Kentucky and may increase just a bit across far southeastern Kentucky. Light accumulations are possible, with up to a few inches POSSIBLY falling along the Virginia border counties. Here’s a rough outline on where this may setup up…

I suspect A Winter Weather Advisory will be needed in that part of the state…

I will have your tracking tools in a bit.

The rest of the state will see a mix of sun and clouds and temps generally in the 30s. Lows by Friday are frigid and hit the teens for many. Sunny skies will boost afternoon temps into the upper 30s and low 40s.

Saturday looks gorgeous so make plans to get out and enjoy it.

Our next system moves in with clouds on Sunday, but rains won’t arrive until late in the day or during the evening. That system brings gusty rains into Monday, but drags a cold front through here with much colder air to follow. There may also be a second system working through, bringing a round of winter weather with it.

The signal for this has been pretty strong and remains so on the models…
