Wednesday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. My time is short, but I’m still dropping by for an update on the storm system ahead of us. This impacts our region from Thursday through Sunday and will bring rain and some snow into our part of the world.

My overall thoughts from the past several days are still the same. There could be a touch of frozen stuff in the far west tonight, but rain moves in Thursday into Thursday night. Temps surge across the east into Friday as rain and gusty winds roll on.

As our upper level flow takes control and our new low takes over to our east Saturday, rain and some wet snow will be possible. A few periods of light snow and snow showers would be possible through Sunday. Can we get some slushy accumulations from this? Maybe, but the temps are marginal, so we shall see.

One thing is for sure, the GFS is taking a beating with this overall setup as it is already missing the snow falling in the Mississippi Valley. Here’s the current snow forecast through the weekend…

Here’s the NAM…

Notice how the model continues to throw some wraparound wet snows in here by Friday night and continues that through the end of the run Saturday night…

The Hi Res NAM only goes through 1am Saturday, but is suggesting the same…

The European Model has a similar look…

Notice how the snow forecast to our west is MUCH different from the GFS, but matches the NAM…

This is a pattern that isn’t very cold looking, but could be cold enough as we get several southern storm systems over the next few weeks.

Make it a great day and take care.

    This has Pine and Black Mt written all over it for accumulation, but below 3,000ft, next to nothing is my thoughts regionwide in the low e lo elevations with some slushy spots. Harlan is suppose to reach 40 both Saturday and Sunday. Only if most of Saturday night keeps the snow going (which the NAMs show) do I expect a slushy inch in the low elevations….fingers crossed.

    I’m sure we can look forward to a lot of cold rain and backside flurries with the southern systems the next few weeks.

    Well, now I am. LOL! Gonna try again…

    Terry, keep the faith. I feel like Feb/Mar will be our snowy winter months this time. It was like that in ’05-06. Not much til Feb, then the whole bottom fell out, so to speak. At least here in Bardstown.

      The next few weeks takes us almost through Feb.

      I wouldn’t count on Feb. snow to bail us out of our snow drought.
      Either way, in a few weeks from now, most of winter will be over and all the above snowfall predictions will be hoping for a late season big snow dump to bail them out.

    Cold enough….again the southern or eastern lows are big bullies, they push the cold out of the way! West and north will get the snows! They don’t stand for bullies, cold wins out there. Here just look any of those maps, all of them say nothing to see here..not in Ky
