Good Saturday, folks. A round of snow is lifting northward across the state today, bringing accumulations to many areas. This band of snow will soon be replaced by another wave of precipitation that will be in the form of rain and snow later today into tonight.
Before we start things out with your morning tracking toys, here are a few thoughts to begin the day:
This band of snow is lifting into northern Kentucky through the morning.
Snowfall with goes from very little in the south to higher numbers in the north, especially areas of east-central Kentucky and north.
Some snow covered roads are likely early on.
As that band lifts our. temps rise above freezing for areas along and south of Interstate 64 by early afternoon.
Light rain takes over for the southern half of the state as the next wave moves in later today into tonight. This rain continues for areas south of 64 with rain and snow along the 64 corridor. More snow falls in the north.
Where does the evening and overnight band of accumulating snow set up across the northern half of the state? That may be a constant nowcast.
Most areas should see whatever is left switching to a little light snow on Sunday.
I will go more in depth on all that with updates later today and talk about a rather extreme winter pattern taking shape for much of the country.
European Model snowfall next 10 days (including today)…
GFS Ensembles for the next 2 weeks…
And the bitter cold coming…
I have you all set to track the early Saturday snows…
