Monday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, folks. It’s a cold, but nice start to the new week across the bluegrass state, but another big storm system rolls in later this week. That will bring a lot of rain, wind, some thunder and even the chance for wraparound snowflakes.

The weather through Wednesday looks fairly quiet and that’s a good thing. We have earned a few quiet days. By Wednesday night and Thursday, things change in a big way. We have a big upper level low slowly working across the region for the second half of the week into the start of the weekend. These systems have a mind of their own because they’re cut off from the main flow.

The theme of the models is the same, but big differences show up in how they handle the actual powerhouse low pressure.

The GFS only gives the chance for some flakes on the backlash moisture, but has a clipper with snow following that up…

The Canadian has much more wraparound snows behind this storm, but does not have the GFS clipper…

The ICON is more in the mindset of the Canadian…

All of this is in an otherwise milder overall pattern across the country. That starts to change later next week as blocking shows back up. That’s likely good news for Christmas week as the pattern trends colder, with some snow chances trying to show up, too.  I’m dreaming of a… Ok, I won’t sing, but I bet you are now. 🙂

I will hook you up with an update later today. Make it a good one and take care.

    That tune sounds real good to Thelma Lou, she just hopes we don’t sing it too early and then the warm up begins just before the big day.

    Not sure i believe him anymore but joe bastardi said the models are not showing it yet but the thursday Friday storm will bring a wide spread 2 to 5 inchis of snow for ohio and kentucky.
