Winter Storm THREAT Continues

Good evening, gang. We are wrapping up the final full day of winter, with mild temps and thunderstorms. Spring arrives on Tuesday with a Winter Storm THREAT for Tuesday and Wednesday. That’s when snow develops across much of Kentucky.

In the short-term, showers and storms are working eastward across the state, with a few strong storms possible in the south. Local severe weather can’t be ruled out along the Tennessee border…

My overall thoughts for the snow potential haven’t changed. Moderate to locally heavy snow will wrap around low pressure just to our east late Tuesday and Wednesday. We will have some melting that cuts into amounts, but here’s the First Call For Snowfall…

I’ve highlighted up to 5″ amounts across parts of north-central Kentucky, where the wrap around may be heaviest. This is a general 1″-4″ snowfall for most of the state, with most coming Tuesday night and early Wednesday. We will likely see widespread cancellations and delays on Wednesday.

A Winter Weather Advisory has already been issued for much of central and eastern Kentucky…

Look for that to be expanded much farther west, with the potential for an upgrade for a few counties.

A check of the forecast models show the European Model continuing to show some pretty hefty totals…

The Hi Res NAM is similar…

Our Winter Storm Threat continues, and I will have a new call for snowfall on WKYT-TV at 11pm. Happy Spring! 🙂

Enjoy the evening and take care.

    Over the decades we have has some whopper snows in March and April. Dynamic cooling was involved. I will say that Winter is over in May. Until then everything is still in play. See you on the flip-side!

    I know a lot of folks are definitely on the #teamspring team, and I’ve definitely got fellow teacher friends who’ve had a lot of days off this year… But like I posted on Twitter last night, here in Louisville we could certainly use a decent, sticking snowfall to give these kids a break. I know spring break is in two weeks, but at this point it’s been five weeks since the last day they had off, and prior to that it was the MLK snow. So one day off in two months. We were supposed to have a couple of days for conferences and trainings in there that we lost and these kids NEED a break (and so do us teachers!) So bring on the snow!!!
