Winter Weather Advisory

Good evening, folks. Light snow is breaking out across areas of central and eastern Kentucky and may cause travel issues. This is a quick mover,  so it won’t put down a ton of snow by any means, but light accumulations are a good bet.

A Winter Weather Advisory is out for many…

Within the northwest to southeast moving round of snow. Coatings to 1″ will be possible for many, with some embedded areas where more than an inch shows up. Much of this will be on elevated surfaces, with initial melting on roads. With temps dropping through the 20s, watch for black ice to form later this evening into the wee hours of Saturday.

Saturday continues to look much better with Sunday looking awesome with temps around 60. Clouds will increase with evening rain arriving, setting off a very wet pattern through the middle of next week. Heavy rain and flooding issues may develop.

Here are your tracking tools for the evening:

One More Round Of Light Snow Moves In

Good afternoon, folks. Our first round of light snow is moving away from southeastern Kentucky with the next round rolling in from the northwest. This has a better chance at putting light snow down this evening. From there, the focus of the forecast continues to be on the increasing potential for heavy rain next week.

This band of evening light snow continues to show up better as we get closer. All models have a stripe of accumulating snow with this, but they vary on placement…

HI RES NAM

HRRR

Travel could get a little tricky for some later this evening. I will have your tracking tools in a bit.

My thoughts on the system next week have not changed. Rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms look to move across Kentucky. Showers start this off on Monday, with Tuesday and Wednesday the prime times for the heaviest rain.

Here’s the area I’ve been targeting for several days now…

The latest rainfall forecast from the WPC looks very similar…

The new run of the GFS keep spitting out some unsettling numbers across the state…

That could get ugly if it verifies. Ugh.

I’ve got the very latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm and will have another KWC update this evening. Until then, I’ve got you all set to track this next round of light snow…

Tracking A Little Bit Of Light Snow

Good Friday, everyone. We’ve made it to the end of the week, but we have a few more rounds of light snow impacting the region. We are emphasizing the word ‘light’ in all this. 🙂 Once into the weekend, tings look better, but next week could get pretty ugly. That’s when rounds of storms and heavy rain roll across the region.

Let’s begin with the first round of light snow out there this morning. This will put down some very light accumulations, but not for everyone. Coatings will be possible with a little more possible in the southeastern part of the state.

Here’s where the Winter Weather Advisory is…

If some areas pick up on a little snow this morning, it’s likely gone pretty quickly as we break out into some sun with temps going above freezing.

The next round of light snow moves in by evening and may put down additional light accumulations, especially across the southeast. That could cause some travel issues as temps drop into the upper teens and low 20s behind it overnight.

Saturday is a mainly clear day with temps ranging from the upper 30s to middle 40s.

Sunday is the most awesome day in a while. Highs reach 60-65 under a partly sunny sky. Make sure to enjoy every minute of it because things go downhill in a hurry by Monday. That’s when showers move back in here ahead of a concerning setup for Tuesday and Wednesday,

Rounds of showers and strong storms will come at us during this time, leading to the potential for flooding. Here’s the area I’ve been highlighting for several days now…

The GFS continues to show the heavy rain potential…

Ugh.

I will have your usual updates later today, so y’all come back. Until then, here are your morning tracking tools…
