A Quick Shot of Winter Weather

Good Friday to one and all. We have much colder air filtering into the region today and this will team up with a quick-hitting area of low pressure scooting to our south. This will bring a swath of light accumulating snow from west to east across the state, with a little freezing rain even showing up.

Here’s a look at the Winter Weather Advisory out for the region…

I mentioned earlier that the trend for the swath of snow could sink south and that has certainly been the case. Areas south of Interstate 64 appear to have the best chance of seeing a swath of light accumulating snows. Here’s the latest call showing that southward adjustment…

That south trend may continue through the day and I will account for that with a Final Call For Snowfall later today. There will be a sharp cutoff on the northern edge of the snow. On the southern edge, some freezing rain may come into play for a time.

In the overall scheme of things, this isn’t a big deal, but it will be just enough to cause some travel issues later this evening into early Saturday. Again, the best chance is along and south of 64.

That action moves away very early on Saturday, which turns into a pretty nice day as sun and a few clouds take control.

The next system moves in early Sunday with a few showers that may begin as a bit of a mix with some wraparound light snow or flurries into early Monday…

From there, additional systems show up through next week and appear to be more rain oriented than anything else…

I will update things later today. Until then, let’s fire up some tracking toys to start the day…

    Yep….rain train pulls back in as winter remains AWOL and finished…

    Since most if not about all of us miss this tiny snow tease, Rainzilla is set to arrive in town and looks to go no where anytime soon. I honestly cant remember seeing WPC spit out such high totals in winter without heat/humidity and absence of a tropical low. THIS IS NUTS AND COULD BE A DISASTROUS FLOOD EVENT NEXT WEEK.

    It just don’t seem right seeing snow in Hawaii even if it is above 13,000 feet in elevation…

    Well so much for next week taking on more of a wintry look. More things change the more they stay the same in the weather department.

  5. Bobt says:

    Bye bye winter. Hello Rain.

  6. Jim B says:

    As I said folks, not enough cold left..it was time to let go of snow hopes weeks ago, no backloaded winter here, lefts all get our eyes set on spring!!! And hope it dries out

  7. Jeremy says:

    What happened to the switch to a more wintery pattern for next week? All I see is a lot of rain. My hopes for a little bit of snow next week last for less than 24 hrs. Ready for spring.

    And I thought last winter was boring….we have entered a pattern of true winter washouts.
    If you want snow, it’s time to move to Seattle apparently, or anywhere in New England.
    We are now taking the place of the Pacific Northwest region.
    Rain, rain, lots of rain, a couple of ankle biters, and rain, ending with a late winter early spring snow surprise that will be gone 48 hrs later.
    There is your winter forecast. Forget the weather models.

  9. BH says:

    Well here comes the whopper of a snow everyone has been praying for. No more complaining. Lol. Now lets move on to spring.

  10. BubbaG says:

    Went down an inch since last night, which means probably on the low end of a low snow. It is what it is, so no point in tears in our beers this winter.

  11. Schroeder says:

    Wait for March and see what we get. The unknown can be exciting too.

  12. feederband says:

    Next week looks like near normal temps in the 40’s and lows in the 30’s. I’m okay with that. We need normalcy in Kentucky to get past the rain train.

  13. Josh says:

    Blind kitty cats could predict the weather better.

  14. SpaceGhost says:

    Great to see that the tri-state is back in the 0-1″ for consistency…

  15. Terry says:

    At least Troy got moved into the “Nothing to 1 inch range.” LOL.

    As the low trends further south, it only cuts down the chance of anyone seeing snow as there is no real cold air to work with and the upper level dynamics look weak. Maybe someone gets a brief pretty picture in the morning before a flash melt.

    This winter can go to _____!

    Meager totals from Euro..

    HRRR going way south with the snow totals. (only goes out to 18 hours)

  18. Jared from Letcher County says:

    New GFS also puts SEKY in the bulls eye for snow (around 2-3 inches, which would be our biggest snow this year lol)

  19. Schroeder says:

    Yeah, but I still want that last big snow 18 to 24 inches would be nice. I hate to be GYP out of a major snowstorm. We still have March to go through and maybe April to get this most rare event.
