A Quick Look At The Winter Potential

Good evening, gang. If it’s the third update of the day, it must mean some winter weather is on the horizon for Kentucky and surrounding areas. This mid-November setup is a cold one that will throw a couple of snow chances our way.

The first possible flake maker comes Friday night and will be preceded by a decent rain maker tonight and Friday. Regional radar will track an increase in the action this evening…

Temps take a big time tumble from late afternoon into the evening on Friday. Skies may dry for a bit then some wraparound moisture swings in from the northwest. That should be in flurry form, but the Hi Res NAM continues to show a few snow showers…

That’s likely overzealous with the snow shower action, so let’s just go with a few flurries for some areas.

Nothing has changed with the potential system early next week. It’s a storm that rolls out of the Gulf and up the east coast. That may bring a swath of snow to our region later Monday into Tuesday…


New version of the GFS

It’s a little crazy here at WKYT at the moment with us on lockdown and the bomb squad in the parking lot, so I gotta run. Have a great evening and take care.

    Geeze! I am glad you all ended up safe Chris!

    Now, where are you snow lovers at???

    Andy, Troy, Jimbo, Crystal and others?….Come on now…this is exciting….don’t let the fear of model failure and waffling prevent you all from being a little excited at least! I mean, this is not common to be discussing a pre-Thanksgiving snow event. Also, it can really only go up this season after last year’s pitiful amounts!☺
