A Little Ugly To End January

Good Friday, everyone. January is winding down with some showers and a touch of snow across the far north. February is ready to start out on a blah note for Saturday, but things look absolutely awesome for Super Bowl/Groundhog Day Sunday. Beyond that, it looks like a temp battle brewing and it’s one that can bring a lot of rain our way.

Today’s showers will be moving through fairly quickly and may even start as some snow in the far north. There could even be some light accumulations there. Here are your tools to track the action…

Temps range from the low 40s north to the 50s across the far south and southeast.

A quick hitting system zips in and out of town on Saturday, bringing a few showers across the eastern half of the state. Our Saturday forecast is looking better as we get closer. Winds will be rather gusty with temps hitting 50 west and mainly 40s for the rest of the state.

Sunday looks AMAZING with temps in the upper 50s to low 60s.

The setup for next week features a slow moving front sagging into the region. Temps ahead of this will generally be in the 60s for Monday and Tuesday. As the front moves in, waves of low pressure develop along the front and could bring heavy rain through here from Monday night through Wednesday. As the front tries to push just to our east by the second half of the week, this could lead to some winter weather possibilities.

You can see all this playing out on the Euro…

The GFS is actually pretty similar…

The ICON has a similar look…

I will have updates later today. Have a good one and take care.

    Big fat wet flakes in So IN. Just can’t find its way south into KY.

    There is a point where an opinion is no longer just an opinion but a self righteous self serving point of view. That point is when you take no effort to respect the platform in which you are expressing yourself. Schroder and Mike S. have been very delinquent in their activity on this blog site that Chris Bailey works tirelessly to put on here. One simple activity can curb this greatly. Ask yourself, am I positively contributing to the Kentucky Weather Center, or am I promoting myself? Yes I know I am late to the game on this but I am saying my peace. Either get with the program that this is Chris’s site he dedicates to bringing us more weather information than we could get during a broadcast or get off of it.

    I still have not giving up on that heavy wet snowstorm for our region of Kentucky as there are signals that suggest this to happen. I still think Spring will be late this year. However, I will enjoy the predicted mild temperatures along with the Sunshine forecast for Sunday.

      LOL! When? Not enough cold air in place along with moisture to facilitate that here. If we get anything decent or big, seems a surprise, based on the models and they’ve ironically been pretty good this winter with no false outlooks. We are already in the record book for longest without snow on ground overall for the state. I’m seeing that extend for a few more weeks- at least.

    Schroeder, i’m hopeful also. Have a great day!!

    Right on Schroeder hopefully!

    Hate to be Debbie Downer, again… but, not cold enough, for long enough…. see green, change the screen.

    The traffic cameras are not showing it but I can verify what I believe to be snow falling from the sky in downtown Cincinnati…it has been a while since I have seen anything like this though.

  8. BubbaG says:

    CB, seemed obvious snow ain’t a thing this winter. Best perhaps to change from snow, to “mix” going forward. Calling this “snow” seems insulting to snow. We broke records for snow four years ago, and now breaking them in the other direction. Balance? 🙂

  9. Bobt says:

    A whole lot more green on those maps than blue. To get a good snow that green has to go to blue pretty quick and in the last few years the change to blue has been at the very end of the precipitation. Spring came when it was supposed to last year even though everyone thought it was going to be late, hopefully this year will be the same. Only 37 days until DST.

    Snow only 2 county’s away. Close but no cigar. ( story of my life
