Winter Storm ALERT South and Southeast

Good evening, folks. A developing winter storm continues to take aim at areas of the bluegrass state. This will bring snow and ice to many tonight, but it’s still a fine line we are walking across the northern half of the state. North of the line is pretty much nothing, south of the line you can get a lot of snow and ice.

I’ve been trying to update the blog for more than an hour, but the server is struggling to handle all the hits today. As Coach Cal says… You people are crazy! But… I love you guys and our awesome weather community we have on here. 🙂

Since I’m having issues updating, this is a bare bones one without all the models I had planned to show. 🙁

We finally have a Winter Storm Warning for far southeastern Kentucky with a Winter Weather Advisory for many other areas…

The Advisory should be a bit farther north in the east and we should have more counties under a warning in the southeast.

A mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain will roll into these areas later this evening, with the bulk of the winter weather arriving late tonight into Sunday. Given the mixed precipitation types, it makes it difficult to talk specific snow totals. Areas that get more freezing rain will obviously come in on the low end of the snow totals. On the flip side, those who get less freezing rain will have quite a bit more snow on the ground.

As mentioned, it’s a VERY fine line between no precipitation and the band of moderate to heavy wintry precipitation. These lines are not the end all be all of where this thing winds up, as everything could shift a little farther north or south. Here’s my updated call…

I will get a final call out later this evening as I get a better handle on just how far north this may or may not get.

I will throw you another update later.. If I can log in to do so. You guys are crazy. 🙂

Here’s regional radar to tide you over…

Have a great evening and take care.

    Thanks Chris. We promise we will try to be good so you can update…. . Thanks for all your hard work for us. We know you love it as much as we do! By the way had to run to Kroger to get something and you’d have thought it was a grand opening! Had to park all the way out to the outer parking lane! But they did still have milk and bread! They were out of turkeys for 29 cents a pound!

    Any chance this can go North enough to reach Hopkins County KY(Madisonville)?

  7. Chickenwaffle says:

    I’m really hoping it treads a little more north, I’m not one for snow but I actually want to see some. Oh and with this site being down and NWS being down as well, it’s been hectic to say the least

    What a headache this storm has been for mets. I literally lol’d at the afternoon discussion from Jackson as they were describing how crazy the models have been the last few days.. Looking forward to tomorrow to put it to bed finally.
