NAM Targets Western/Southern Kentucky

Good evening once again. I wanted to drop by for a very quick update to show what the NAM is cooking for late Sunday into Sunday night.

The model keeps the main snow threat across the southern half of the state, with a comma head of snow rolling due east…

Here’s the snow forecast from that particular run…

Do NOT take the placement and numbers as the absolute gospel. They are coming from one run of one computer model. It’s also showing snowfall and not snow depth.

The Hi Res NAM has a similar comma head of snow rolling from west to east…

The snow map from that also targets western Kentucky, and gets more choppy the farther east it goes…

All this begins as rain, then switches over to snow as dynamic cooling takes over in the comma head of precipitation. Even then, temps maybe marginal, adding to the accumulation dilemma.

As you can see, there will be a very sharp cutoff on the northern edge of the precipitation shield.

The Winter Storm Threat continues and I will update things in a few hours. Enjoy the rest of your evening and take care.

    Thanks Chris. Keeping a positive thought. If it does snow here, it won’t stay on the ground long. Guess we will see what you think in the morning. Thanks again for updating.
