Storms and Snow Ahead

Good Sunday, everyone. We have a small break in the busy March weather pattern, but don’t get too used to it. The third month of the year continues to bring the action, and will throw several more systems our way for the week ahead. Everything from thunderstorms to snow are on the weather menu. Yippee 🙁

Let us begin with today and roll ahead. Highs range from the upper 50s to low 60s for most of the state. Clouds will quickly increase across the west, with showers and thunderstorms developing later tonight. That action then rolls eastward across the rest of Kentucky on Monday.

That’s when another potent storm system arrives. Heavy rain, thunder and gusty winds will all be noted.

Another low then works into southeastern Kentucky later Tuesday and Wednesday. That system provides us with rain and snow, with the potential for wraparound snows developing across parts of central and eastern Kentucky. Watch both of the systems showing up around here. All models now show this.

The NAM only goes through Wednesday morning, but you can clearly see the comma head of snow…

The Canadian has it…

The GFS keeps showing it…

Here’s the snow accumulation map from that run of the GFS…

The overall setup with this isn’t too dissimilar to the one that produced nearly a foot of snow last Sunday night. That said. no two systems behave exactly the same.

Can we get a threat out of this? Yep.

Temps behind that second low are COLD, with some areas in the 30s for highs. Lows by Thursday morning may even reach the upper teens in a few spots.

Another storm system then develops and heads right at us by the weekend.

I will hook you up with updates later today, so check back. Have a good one and take care.

    Thanks Chris, I don’t recall anytime this winter, that all the weather models were in agreement three days out. It is not that unusual in the Ohio River Valley to have winter events after the vernal equinox. I remember snow flurries in May, and a frost in mid-June which damaged a lot of the crops up in Indiana. Hopefully, in a couple of weeks we will be in #teamspring. Have a great Sunday everyone.

    On this date back in 1925 was a tornado outbreak that featured one very remarkable tornado. This so-called Tri-State tornado traveled across three states, especially affecting southern Illinois…..not far from western KY. Even though there may some debate whether the Tri-State twister may have been more than one tornado, the Tri-State tornado may still be in a c-l-a-s-s far by itself in many ways such as longevity, intensity and casualties.

    Being a formal Hoosier, that Griffin, Indiana tornado is still talked about to this very day in Evansville, Indiana. Good work on your research.

    Snow potential for mid week moving further east with each model run. This will likely be an all rain event for KY with a few backside flurries (and hopefully a huge warm up shortly after).

    Please no more snow! My grandbabies already have to go to school way up in June because of weather and the strike.
