Tuesday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. It’s a cold and cloudy day in the bluegrass state as a few flurries fly for some areas. This dreary sky will carry us through the net few days, all while we track a very light snow maker toward the region. This thing continues to look pretty darn wimpy for Wednesday.

Let’s start with this afternoon and roll ahead. Temps are in the 30s with a few flakes flying by. There’s actually a chance for a true snow shower later tonight across the north and east. This action is so light that regional radar won’t pick up on much of it…

Snow lovers are going to love the look of the radar to our west later today and tonight. Don’t let it fool you because that action will diminish as it moves into Kentucky. There’s still likely to be a swath of late night light snow in the west, but that wimps out as it rolls east on Wednesday. Another batch of light snow and flurries then work to the east  Wednesday night with some light accumulations

Hi Res NAM

Again, Some light accumulations will show up with this.

The weekend system continues to look like a close call. but we can’t get the two pieces of energy to hook up…

The Canadian is a little better look for some rain and snow around here…

Once that goes by, temps take a walk on the wild side. 60 degree highs surge in for a couple of days before an arctic front arrives by the middle of next week.

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV at 4pm then again on KWC this evening. Make it a good one and take care.

    The old saying close doesn’t count except in horshoes and hand grenades…story of our lives in Kentucky.

      At least we will have temperatures in the sixties for a few days, before the snowless arctic air sets back in.

        Sorry but the word artic…really shouldn’t be used, more like cooler air from southern Illinois. But the part about no precipitation is correct(unless it’s 40…it will rain. But hey like several of you said we got to track it at least! Haha. Oh well

    Today’s version of arctic fronts brings lows in the upper 20s, and highs in the mid 30s….. cold rain, if anything…. that will be the new norm

  3. Jimbo says:

    I think we can all agree on one thing. The artic front front will be be brief and dry.

    • Terry says:

      The oscillations show possible arctic air chance but temps sure aren’t showing it next week? I am not sure we tap into Northern Canada and the cold looks near normal for early February. Oscillations are more neutral than truly favorable yet.

    #WinterIsOverBeforeItGotHere

    This winter reminds me of winter 2016-2017.

    • Jimbo says:

      And 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 too.

      • Terry says:

        And 2011-2012. Actually, temps are right about the same as 2012 season unless, by a miracle at this point, February is below average and cools the whole winter down a few degrees, still blow torch territory right now.
