Friday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. Rounds of moderate to heavy rain continue to work across the bluegrass state, with the heaviest across the south and southeast. As we head into Saturday, some winter weather rolls in and there’s another shot of that coming on Tuesday. Behind that comes a lot more rain. Ugh.

With the rain ending as some snow tomorrow afternoon and evening, a touch of slush may show up. The greatest chance is across the mountains of the southeast…

Sunday looks like a MUCH better day and that lasts into much of Monday, but the next system looks to bring rain and snow in here Monday night and Tuesday.

Here’s how the Euro sees this setup…

Yesterday, I pointed toward a setup with a trough in the west and a ridge in the east and talked about how that’s likely a super soaker setup around here.  The new Euro takes that to the limit with the system coming late next week…

Look at the Euro rainfall forecast from just that storm on…

Holy smokes that’s ugly!

Enjoy your evening and take care.

    All we get anymore are wimpy winters. I guess that’s the new normal around here.

    It has been so bad, I have not seen at least had one medium snow (4 inches or more) since February 2016. The annual season totals have even been around 4 inches or less for my location since 2016.

    I swear, I could punch Mr. Winter in the icesicle! Oh I forget, I can’t even do that because it is too **** warm.

      Winter has been cancelled! Come back November 2020 and try again. If there ever was a year setup to be a top 10 or maybe top 5 least snowy Winter for me, this is it.

    For those of you that want winter, It’s coming just going to be a bit late.. I see a slow ride into a wintry pattern by middle to late Jan.. How long it last, Well i think you’ll see several winter storms so it may last a few weeks but we shall see if that setup comes to fruition!! Be safe all!

    I’m going to add on Putz comment we had a below normal temps for the month of November and the first two weeks in December. That being said they did predicted that we would experience mild temps in between of the winter months and were experiencing that now and the cold would return mid January. We shall see how that plays out. If it stays mild I don’t think we will endure much severe storms that CB has mentioned.

    The due east significant snow over Kentucky Tuesday changed to a north east flow missing Kentucky…. I must be Nostradamus! That, or seen the models do this almost 100% every time. The latter of course.

    The longer the cold air takes to move south, the more abrupt and short lived it will be. The cold air would literally push the moisture for this area out of the way, meaning south and north of us would be more likely to get snow. Ironic.

    Barring some unexpected event, not seeing a big snow this year. Three years in a row though of virtually nothing could be record for KY though. Not even a decent ankle biter, unless higher elevations or to the north.

    Bubba G only mother nature knows what we may get or may not get. We can’t second guess what will happen the statement you mentioned. Don’t let mother nature fool you.

  8. Bobt says:

    The longer the cold gets pushed back the smaller our window of snow gets. These couple of weeks are historically some of the coldest of the year for us. This has been a repeat of last year where cold temps always stayed two weeks away.

  9. Bjenks says:

    Winter will be here soon enough! Just hang on another week or two or month or two or Year or two…..

    I usually wait til mid January for this, even though I’ve known the outcome the last few yrs, which isn’t changing….. but here it goes… put a fork in it!!!!
