Tuesday Evening Update

Good evening, everyone. Light snow continues to target southeastern Kentucky, bringing slick travel to several counties. We’ve had reports of enough accidents to close down a road or two until road crews could help out. As that action winds down, we focus on a busy pattern with more winter weather threats ahead.

For the latest on what’s happening and to see some cool snow pics, follow along with my @kentuckyweather twitter feed.

As we look down the road, we are finding a very active pattern. A system moves in on Friday with the potential for a touch of freezing rain on the leading edge of chilly showers. Another system may bring some light rain and light snow by Saturday night, but the main system of interest comes Sunday night into Monday.

You can see all three systems on the Euro…

That one taking shape for Sunday night into early next week is looking like a potential Ohio Valley winter storm. That may bring all modes of precipitation are possible.

The WPC is highlighting the winter weather potential…


Sunday-Sunday Night

Monday-Monday NightSo, we have several systems to track and that’s always fun, regardless of if they play out exactly how you want them to for your backyard! 🙂

Here are your evening tracking tools…

    Big overachiever in my back yard here in south East Tennessee!! Almost 3” of heavy wet snow!!

    • Terry says:

      Even Mississippi and Alabama are getting a good hit in the northern counties!

      I am glad for you as your annual average is only like 5 inches or less down your way. This is a good event south of Knoxville!

    • Msd says:

      Definitely! Here in Knoxville it’s probably about the same but the radar shows some more moderate bands on the way. Thankfully not sticking to roads as temp is just above freezing.

    • TennMark says:

      Good for you, Tim and others snow lovers in Tennessee. Here in Nashville, the very dry air m*a*s*s led to snow reaching the ground only a few times this morning and early afternoon. The snow was briefly sticking a little to the likes of pick-nick tables and car tops.

  2. Terry says:

    Well, Debbie and Jimbo must have done a snow dance for my area. I have 2 inches now and still pouring! Roads are covered now too. By the radar only, I may reach 3 inches as I have an hour or two of moisture left. Very hard snow rate at times and then light for a while but still 2 inches in 3 hours is nice considering it was 60 this morning with an inch of rain before the late afternoon turnover:)

    • I’m happy for you, Terry! It’s always good to see someone is getting it!

      • Terry says:


        I hope all of us get some decent hits this year. I think I will make it to ankle biter status by the event end. My current snow rate is about an inch per hour, sometimes it wanes but then picks back up!

        • Dottie says:

          I had to check in just to see if you got your snow Terry. Glad to see you’re getting more than a flake or two.

        • Jimbo says:

          It’s over for me about an hour and half of snow put down maybe half inch. Glad folks to the south are doing well. My locals have just rain and 40 or higher for the next week after tomorrow. Hopefully things change. The locals didn’t catch on to this till yesterday. Credit to Chris for days ahead forecast.

          • Terry says:

            No Advisory I am nearing 3 inches now! Crazy….we get WWA and sometimes warnings like last week for basically nothing.

            I hate you all missed out and honestly, the Morristown NWS did a pretty good forecast but “under” on the totals with no advisories to my south, although I am barely out of their coverage area.

            Chris did the best!

  3. Jared from Letcher County says:

    Closing in on three inches here, with the main roads snow covered and treacherous. We actually could have used a winter weather advisory or winter storm warning tonight as I’m sure the higher elevation areas have quite a bit more snow.

  4. nasdaq says:

    non-event in Corbin

  5. Ricvice says:

    Not even a single flake in lexington. Congrats to those who did

  6. Jared from Letcher County says:

    Almost at four inches now, more than what fell during the entirety of last winter.

  7. Snowrunner says:

    Sadness in Frankfort

  8. Rickie H says:

    We have 2 1/2” here in Jenkins. The roads are all covered and school has already been canceled. Still pouring!
    I don’t know if anyone read my post that I put on here yesterday evening. But I had a memory post pop up on my Facebook and one year ago yesterday we had 4 inches of snow when I videoed the picture of my backyard. We ended up with over 5 inches that snow.. That was one year ago yesterday and now this evening we have 2 1/2 and it is still falling. We probably won’t get 4 inches out of this ,but will not be surprised to get a good three.

  9. jacksons says:

    Been snowing pretty hard in Northeast Pike County for several hours…hopefully the first of many this winter.

  10. Debbie says:

    Congrats to Terry! 🙂 I’m happy you’re getting snow even if it doesn’t last that long! I’m still not liking the looks of those models for next week-not that they will come to fruition, but you never know in KY. If there’s an ice storm to be had, it’ll be in my backyard. I’m like the trailer park in an EF-5 when it comes to those things! LOL! 🙂 I’ve had a bad sinus infection for a week now and I want to be WELL so I can enjoy the wintry stuff if it does indeed materialize!

    • Terry says:


      I will do a measure very early in the morning. Radar still shows a little but nothing falling now, so I think my event ended about 15 minutes ago.

  11. Jared from Letcher County says:

    Snow has tapered off here, looks like a storm total of around 3 1/2 inches. What’s crazy is that locations 15 miles to the northwest only received a dusting at best.

  12. Illinois Mike says:

    Wow! Looks like the NWS did mess up after all by not issuing a Winter Weather Advisory for SE Kentucky. Nice that you guys have at least a couple of inches down, which is more than the bare ground we have in the Chicago area.

  13. Mike says:

    In my part of Richmond, when I last measured we were up to 0 inches total. That’s from 0 from my last measure. But your results could be different.

  14. Prelude says:

    You mean to tell me that SE Kentucky got 1-4 inches of the white blanket of death aka snow depending on location. I can’t get one 80 degree sunshiny day in December here in Kentucky, unreal. Smh
