A Few Late Evening Thoughts

Good evening, fellow weather weenies. I wanted to drop by for a super quick update on the rain and snow system moving in here for early next week. As we get closer to the storm system, things start to come into a little better focus.

The energy with this storm system is fairly strung out, leading to lighter precipitation across the bluegrass state. You can see the strung out nature of the system on the future radar/satellite from the Hi Res Nam. This only goes through Monday evening…

You can see how the main band of precipitation is in the form of rain as expected. Then you see rain and snow filling in behind that, but it’s lighter in nature.

Here’s a little more specific look at my current expectations from this system…

The best chance for some accumulations comes later Monday night into Tuesday. Given the amount of cold surging into the state, wet roads can turn a little icy even without much snow.

Another storm system may try to impact us late in the week, with another arctic surge behind it for the weekend. I will have a full update on all this early season winter mischief coming up later tonight.

Enjoy the evening and take care.

    Thanks Chris maybe someday here in east ky we might see snow oh well what can you do but pull out the umbrella and keep smiling lol!!!

    I am more concerned for high water in Harlan than anything but it only looks like 1 to 2 inches due to speed of the system. The problem with this storm is it really didn’t seem like it wants to wrap up but looks weak until it gets close to Canada. It doesn’t look like Central KY gets much either. Oh well, let’s move on☺

    Lol here we go with dreaded “next week” storms before Thanksgiving. If we get a decent snow look for it in Feb or March

    We never get a blaster anymore before its time again for southern moisture returns in late winter. The clinate here has changed folks..

      We got two 1′ (that’s feet) snow storms back to back just a few years ago, plus several 3-4″ snowfalls, so I don’t think your pessimism on snowfall is totally accurate. Last winter was pretty tame as far as snow; but it was extended cold.

    Yeah I really hope we don’t start getting into GFS fantasy snowstorm land a week out all winter. I do think we’ve got a good chance for good snows this winter, but this one isn’t it. <1" for nearly all locations.

    I am now 2.02″ away from setting the all time record for precipitation in my area of WV. I think the record has good chance of being broken given how wet the year has been. And especially with most every storm producing a lot of rain followed by the dreaded backside flurries.

    Here’s to 80 degree weather with low humidity a gentle breeze and plenty of sunshine with a few fair weather clouds.
