Winter Weather Advisory

Good evening, folks. A Winter Weather Advisory is now out for the northern parts of the bluegrass state, but doesn’t really match up with any trends from the past few days. Those trends continue with the late day forecast models, too.

Here’s the Winter Weather Advisory…

Three days ago, that would have been a good placement. Right now, it needs to include many more counties to the south of that, especially across the eastern half of the state into West Virginia.

The late day models have my back…

NAM only through 7pm Sunday

Hi Res NAM

Short Range Canadian

New version of the GFS

The regular version of the GFS continues to be the odd man out and maybe that’s the model of choice, but even that is farther south across eastern Kentucky…

A few notes…

  • A band of light rain and light snow moves in overnight and can put down some light accumulations in the north.
  • The main batch of precipitation moves in later Sunday into Sunday evening. The greatest concentration is across the east and southeast during the later part of the day.
  • For areas getting snow, it’s a wet brand of snow that shouldn’t have much of an impact on roads during the daylight hours. Slick spots develop Sunday evening into early Monday as temps crash.

Lows by Monday morning are deep into the teens…

Single digit wind chills show up across the west and central parts of the state.

Make it a good one and take care.

    Thanks CB!

  3. Which way is the wind blowing says:

    I have now officially thrown in the towel.
    Brutal cold weather for the month of March with nothing to show for it.
    At least the rain event will not last long.

    I will post something on this later this evening, And yes my thoughts are a bit different then CB’s.. But i’m the same, Bring on spring!

      Ok here are my thoughts as of now, The track is pretty much the same as CB’s except a bit farther south but not much, However i think it will over achieve in area’s from southwest to northeast i’d say in a line from a line just west of Elizabethtown and northeast from there to Hunington,WV, It’s not going to be a very wide area from just north of I-64 south to the Berea area, I’d say maybe 40 miles wide… I can see somewhere in that area getting more then 4 inches. Does it mean everyone in that area get’s 4″+ No but someone area will.. Also the wind will pickup following this as you know it’s going be freezer type cold.. Next system looks quite interesting, But days away and that will be for another time. Hoping for one snow before spring, Common spring. Be safe all !

    Well, the models the last two days have shown anything from 1 to 9 inches of snow in my county. I am betting on a dusting at best. The models are just bad at predicting snowfall. I hope tax payer money doesn’t fund these things.

  6. Jimbo says:

    I can see that happening except the snow will be about 30 or so miles north of Huntington. From Huntington to Charleston is a no snow zone.

  7. Russell says:

    Same ole same ole…I’m ready to board the spring train…

  8. Bill L says:

    Local mets have my south Louisville snow falling in day while the temps are above freezing…bah humbug!

  9. Ray says:

    I could be wrong, but I think we might actually see snow this time, a decent snow at that, and with the next system coming after, sounds like a biggy. Interesting times ahead.
