Winter Weather Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Snow showers have been doing their thing, putting down light accumulations across much of the region. This action continues into Thursday, then the focus shifts toward the weekend and two winter weather makers heading our way.

Additional snow showers will be around out there today, with additional light accumulations. With a true northwesterly flow kicking in tonight and Thursday, a nice stream of snow showers will show up from Lake Michigan all the way into the Appalachian Mountains.

Local 1″ amounts will be possible…

Again, some delays or cancellations are possible Thursday morning, especially in the east.

The next system moving our way late Friday into Friday night continues to look to have rain and snow with it. For the past several days, I’ve talked about the potential for a swath of accumulating snow to show up with this and that’s now showing up on the models. Here’s the NAM…

The Canadian Model has a similar swath of snow from this system…

This run of the Canadian also continues the trend of the model finding more and more of the Sunday storm. Watch the evolution of both systems…

The GFS continues to be the strongest with our storm, bringing a wind-driven rain and snow event to our region. This is actually pretty impressive…

The snapshot of snowfall from that one run…

Moral of the story… we are tracking two systems that can bring accumulating snows to parts of Kentucky. The second one on Sunday has the opportunity to develop into an attention getter.

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm, and will have another update this evening.

Enjoy your snow showers and take care.

    Come on late snow! The nice thing about late snows is that they won’t hang around long – high suns and long days will do the business on them… How about this, a foot of snow and then it’s gone in four of five days?

      Like!

      But the models during winter / cold months can’t predict very good…probably be right on with March 11th (4 inches!!!)

    Temps gonna have to come down to snow. Locals in WV have highs in the upper 40’s everyday thru next Tuesday after tomorrow.

      Yep….IF, we get it Sunday night, it will be heavy, wet snow and I think the higher elevations have a good shot but not too hreat in the valleys at this ti me. Right now, QPF values are predicted over an inch for a lot of KY and towards your area….A flood risk will also be a concern IF the low tracks like the GFS suggests.
