Thursday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. We have a potent cold front moving in here tonight with a nice line of showers and thunderstorms along it. The real story is what comes behind it with multiple hard freezes and snow chances.

The storms this evening can be strong or locally severe across the west and some of that may sneak across the southern half of the state…

Cold air comes in behind this, but Friday’s weather looks pretty good with sun and 40s.

The snow system zipping across the Tennessee Valley later Saturday into Saturday night will target southern Kentucky with some snow. The bulk of the action will fall in Tennessee, but the chance to see some light snow…

One of the scenarios I mentioned a few days for the cold air to be so strong it crushed the storm south. That’s the case this weekend with hard freezes likely.

I also talked about the next system moving in right behind that. This one has a chance to dig and form a major eastern US winter storm and is the one that’s had me intrigued for a while now.

The European Model…

Look at the crazy cold engulfing the region as this storm cranks up…

The GFS goes absolutely nuts with this system…

Again… I am very intrigued by this setup for early next week.

For all the green thumbs… forget about it. There’s not a whole lot you can do over the next week. This isn’t going to be a night or two of a hard freeze, it’s going to be about every night. Lows can drop deep into the teens on more than one occasion.

Have a great evening and take care.

      LOL In Jim’s defense, Spring may be going away for a week or 2 starting this weekend, but once again I say (and everyone else agrees) that Spring/springlike weather has indeed been here since January. Can’t understand why this truth irritates you so much. 😉

      Oh, I’m still in spring mode, this is just a little hiccup coming, typical ky early spring. A little cold, and few harmless flakes. Yawn meter a solid 10..thanks for the shout put though

    Thanks Chris. Any chance the line moves north a tad? Don’t care either way but would like to be prepared if it should. Guess we will wait and see what happens. Have a great evening everyone.

  4. which way is the wind blowing says:

    The storm coming next week will probably be our last great chance for a decent snowfall.
    Maybe the models might be correct this time.
    My confidence level very low.

    I’ve gotten my hopes up too many times and now I find it hard to believe that it will snow early to mid next week

    Next week system will weaken and we will get nothing, but still exciting to track it nonetheless.

    I remember back in the 60’s it was in spring and the leaves on the trees were just starting to come out. We got hit with a hard freeze and that year there were no nuts or acorns. The squirrels were so hungry they were eating corn in the fields. That was only time that I ever saw no hickory nuts or acorns on the trees.
