Winter Weather Advisory

Good afternoon, everyone. I don’t have a lot of time, so let’s get into the heart of the issues we are facing over the next several days.

Our first system is a light snow maker for a part of the state late tonight and early Tuesday. A Winter Weather Advisory is out for several counties in central and southeastern Kentucky…

Some local 1″-2″ amounts will be possible in this region, but there will be a super sharp edge to where this falls. I will have a New Call For Snowfall on WKYT starting at 4pm.

In terms the late week and weekend rain maker, things continue to look ugly for the region. Rounds of heavy rain and a few strong storms will be noted. The exact placement of the heaviest rainfall corridor continues to bounce around a bit.

The Canadian is targeting more of western and central Kentucky…

So is the GFS…

The ICON is more widespread for the entire region…

I’ll see you on WKYT starting at 4 then again on KWC later this evening. Make it a good one and take care.

    Glad to see those rain maps continuing a western shift

      Ummm … western KY doesn’t want it either. Some models showing a nice snow behind the rain. Surprised Mr Bailey hasn’t shown that. Rodger in Dodger.

    Temps are so marginal for Harlan, but I have been lucky this year, so hopefully a little more snow to add to my total season 🙂


    As far as the rain, looks very unimpressive for SE KY and I figured the models would correct NW. Next week may still be an issue for my area, however. I am glad to see areas far west may get the most since they are the driest in the past several weeks, NOT THAT I AM WISHING FLOODING ON ANYONE! They are drier west of I-65 than out this way but those amounts are still too much for this time of the year due to less absorption.

      I was never that concerned with the rain threat. Those rainfall estimates are usually way over done. I was pretty confident the southeast wind would that thing it does. I am glad the flood threat has decreased.

        I am barely in the advisory and wonder if I am only in it due to the highest elevations are in my county. I hope I get a quick hit but it will be a flash melt. 50 today and coldest low was actually today at 27, been weeks now since I have seen 20 degrees at night 🙁

    Nice to see the advisory loop around Knox on both the north and east side. Something about this terrain that keeps snow away.

    • Troy says:

      It truly is uncanny how you guys in Knox Co get left out of virtually every snow event no matter where it lines up. It’s really weird

      • Bobt says:

        I agree. The changeover is usually slower here than all the counties surrounding us. Middlesboro will also get some 4+ inch snows that east Tennessee gets in on and we will get snow in the far Eastern part of the county and nothing 8 miles west toward Barbourville. Odd area.

    Refreshing to see a winter weather advisory instead of a flash flood watch for once..,even though Fayette appears to been on the outside looking in again. May be able to take a 30 minute drive down south to see it if it pans out.

    We may get a quick inch or two of snow here in NE Pike County tomorrow morning before it melts away but these days we will take what we can get lol.

    NWS shows Hal Roger’s north event and basically nothing in Harlan. The dewpoint is real low and that may help some, however. This is one of those “it could go either way” events. Regardless, it all melts tomorrow. I hope I can get a dab as the future is dreadful. 70s now far Harlan Saturday…I knew the models were “under doing” the temps last week….pure subtropical looking through the foreseeable future starting this weekend. I think Chris’s February severe weather threat may come a month early. Winter is on life support and certainly not as forecasted by many except NWS and they are winning so far, all be it a little wetter than they predicted.

    I guess my palms will grow on, that is one positive 🙂

    When are we EVER going to see snow Chris?? Asking from Meade County. This has been horrible!

    Finally an 18z fantasy snowstorm to break the otherwise torch weather predictions. Catch it before it flips back to tropical tomorrow.
