Good afternoon, everyone. Bluegrass Bubba says we have six more weeks of winter on the way to the bluegrass state, and his long lost cousin, Phil, agreed. The not so furry forecaster known as your friendly weatherdude, reluctantly agrees. 🙁
Today is absolutely Frigid as the temps are busting the models in a huge way. Many of us are struggling to get into the 20s… Even with sunshine.
Our weekend system continues to look like a snow, to rain, then back to snow system from Saturday night through Sunday night.
The Hi Res NAM only goes through Sunday evening, but shows this setup very well…
The snowfall from that setup…
The “normal” run of the NAM is similar to what you see above.
The GFS is also signing a similar tune, but appears to be overshooting the Saturday night temps…
The Canadian is much colder, but with less precipitation…
- Snow and a mix move in Saturday night, with accumulations a good bet into Sunday morning.
- A stripe of 2″+ snows is going to show up, but I haven’t pinpointed where just yet. Surrounding that could be lots of 1″-2″ amounts.
- Temps rise Sunday afternoon as the precipitation tapers off to light rain.
- Another system dives in from the northwest, with a band of light snow that lasts into Monday morning. Some light accumulations are possible with this.
Beyond all this… Another storm takes aim at us Tuesday into Wednesday. I think this storm may put the rain/snow dividing line right on top of Kentucky.
Another system will follow that up by next weekend. There’s no shortage of winter weather threats in the pattern we stuck in through the middle of the month, at least.
I will have the latest on all this on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm. Another update comes your way this evening. Take care.
