Saturday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. It’s just a nasty night across the bluegrass state with rain, sleet and snow taking center stage. I wanted to drop by for a very quick update on the rest of the weekend.

A Winter Weather Advisory and a Winter Storm Warning remain in effect for areas of northern Kentucky…

Those are the areas that will continue to see the best chance for a nasty mix of plain old snow through early Sunday morning. Later Sunday into Sunday night, some light snow will be possible for much of the rest of the region, especially in the southeast.

Here’s how the NAM snow map sees the rest of the weekend…

The Hi Res NAM for the same time…

You will notice how the northern parts of the state continue with the better snow chance and that’s been the forecast from the get go. Can that line sink a little farther south than the models think tonight? That’s, at least, a small possibility.

I’ll see you guys for the late night update as we focus on a harsh second half of winter kicking off.

Until then, track away…

    Most fans thought that Alabama would make a good comeback for the second half of last Monday’s game……
    I would love to see a big harsh comeback, but I’m sitting here watching the rain AGAIN and I just don’t buy it! The cold was supposed to be in place now. But hey, I did see 2 inches on the ground for about 4 hours

      Yep, this was supposed to be all snow some days back, but the warm air overruled. So far all of the storms in the posts have been for media demographics to the north and south 😉

      Still seems we have a good shot for a 6 to 8 incher, but the systems CB refers to over the next few weeks all seem to show Kentucky as a minor player and the main action to our north and east. Not me guessing, but the actual model progressions.

    When Chris says northern Kentucky does that mean 3 ft from the ohio border? Ashland 0 inches and counting

    This had warm nose and rain written all over it from the beginning.

    • Bobt says:

      Models have predicted two snow storms to impact the state since meteorogical winter started and both have failed miserable. Sad thing is that EVERY single model has shown accumalting snow right up to the storm and most areas get nothing.

    • Jeff Hamlin says:

      No it did not.

      • Dwhite1990 says:

        Yea they did. Sorry to say. The GFS, EURO, FV3GFS, NAM, they have all shown accumulating snowstorms in pretty much all of BBN. Almost within 24 hours of said storms.

    Looks like by this time next Saturday, we can check off another week of Winter chasing Phantom Snowstorms and cold weather.

    All is not lost. The Cowboys just went down.

    I’m not sure if this is a comment section or Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith doing a hot take marathon.
