Election Night Weather Update

Good evening, folks. As this Election Day wraps up, we are tracking a winter looking pattern over the next week. It’s one that may throw a couple of snow chances our way, with a fairly good signal showing up next Monday and Tuesday.

Before we get to all that, a weak system works quickly into the region late tonight and early Wednesday. That may bring a shower or two our way.

The next system arrives late Thursday into Friday as low pressure works just to our south and east. That brings a cold rain into the region, with snow just to our north. As that low passes by, northwesterly winds my spit out a few snowflakes Friday night or Saturday morning…

The GFS is showing the best chance for a few flakes across the mountains of eastern Kentucky…

Very cold air hangs into Saturday with highs struggling into the upper 30s and low 40s.

The signal for a winter looking storm system for early next week continues to show up. The European Model is brining arctic air into the eastern half of the country as low pressure works from the deep south and up the east coast. That could bring snow to our region…

Here’s the European Model snow map from now through the middle of next week…

The GFS isn’t quite making the complete phase of the storm, but is still showing some decent early season winter weather…

The GFS snow forecast through next week…

Lows next week may drop into the teens, with wind chills that are even colder. The cold air is highly anomalous for this time of year and it is almost always accompanied by, at least, some early season snow chances.

I will talk more about that later tonight. Enjoy your evening and take care.

    Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! BRING IT ON!!!

    In all seriousness before the snow chances, it looks like SE KY may get well over an inch of rain Friday. With two inches last night, Harlan may be borderline for high water!

    So the NWS confirms a second tornado touchdown EF-0 last night in I think Marion County.
