Bitter Cold and Snow Update

Good evening, gang. Not much change in the overall forecast for tonight through the weekend. It’s bitterly cold with a glancing blow of snow for the southeast.

The models continue to show a VERY fine line between no snow and heavy snow for southeastern Kentucky. Areas along the Virginia border continue to show up with anywhere from 1″-6″ on the GFS…

The short range HRRR Model also shows a similar setup over the next 12 hours…

I honestly cannot believe that area or into southern West Virginia is not under a Winter Weather Advisory to be safe. What’s the harm in it? There is NO harm in alerting people to a potential impact. Track the action here…

The bitterly cold temps are here with readings tonight dropping as low as -5 into areas that clear the skies. If you stay cloudy, you stay in the singles. Wind chills are a different story…

Wind Chill Advisory?

Similar numbers will be noted Saturday night into Sunday morning. Ouch.

I will update things late tonight. Make it a great evening and take care.

    Thanks Chris! Stay warm! Still wish that storm would jog a bit further West and north!

    Lol…Harlan tends to get the most when no advisories are issued! I have seen this many times over the years!

    Thanks to CB for the fine detailed analysis and for alerting folks to be careful in our part of the state and on south and east!

    I have had this feeling all week, and by looking at water vapor, radars and other data, the system seems a little farther west and bigger than even thought a few hours ago…getting a little excited here at the house!

    Wild how I used to chastise people on here that would be happy when systems missed us, and now I am in the same camp of thought. Wild.

    Just got weather Advisory for pike county of 1-3 inches Chris you were right about the se counties.

  5. Jared from Letcher County says:

    Pouring of snow here, yet maybe 5 miles north there’s nothing except flurries. A very sharp cutoff to the snow it seems.

  6. Terry says:

    Working on a solid 2 inches here in Harlan and the intensity is only increasing–terrific forecasting CB!

    If it doesn’t shift farther east soon, this may be an over achiever above a winter weather advisory, at least we got that though!

    Chris,
    Do you think it is going to be 60 degrees two plus days next week?
