Friday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. A quick-hitting round of winter weather is rolling across the state this evening, bringing the potential for a light snowfall for some. This will cause some slick roads for a few areas as temps drop into the 20s overnight.

The Winter Weather Advisory continues for western and central Kentucky, but the National Weather Service in Jackson refuses to issue and advisory for the southeast…

Areas of southeastern Kentucky have the best risk of seeing some light accumulations overnight. That swath of 1″-3″ of snow is likely to show up within the area I’ve highlighted…

The GFS is hitting this area pretty hard…

So is the new version of the GFS

Both models also indicate some freezing rain, but I think this aspect is overdone by a bit…



As we look farther down the road, the Sunday system starts as a bit of a mix then goes over to showers. The system moving in Tuesday may start out as snow and freezing rain before rain takes over…

I have you all set to track this evening’s winter weather…

    Thanks Chris. We have come through snow, and sleet and rain between Lexington and Somerset. Right now it is 40 and raining. Gonna see if a little snow gets here later. Right now it’s a cold rain. Have a Good Friday evening.

    The theme song to this winter,….Dan.Fogleburgs “auld land syne”.last verse…”The snow turned into rain”.

    The new GFS is comical. Gives 4 inches of snow for counties getting rain. If that is an upgrade someone needs to give a refund..

    Still no mention yet from Chris but next week looks about as extreme I have ever seen for rainfall forecast in SE KY from a non tropical threat. Dangerous flooding possible!

  6. How about the Anne Murray Snowbird song.
    Spread your tiny wings and fly away
    And take the snow back with you
    Where it never came from on that day.
    Of course I personally added NEVER in the lyrics.

    Hope those who get the snow enjoy it.. I’ve been looking at the gefs ensembles every day now for the past two weeks. It has perennially shown the southeast ridge breaking down 324 hours in. And of course, each model run it gets pushed back six hours, such that it’s still exactly 324 hours away. Such is life.
