Thursday Midday Thoughts

Good afternoon, everyone. Snow is grazing parts of southern and southeastern Kentucky and it’s putting down light accumulations. This is a fast-moving system that will be in and out before the evening is over. Behind it comes some better looking weather into the weekend, but a winter pattern is lurking next week.

Let’s start this midday party with the snow potential across southeastern Kentucky, A few schools have already called off early because of the snow moving in and traffic cams show the snow accumulating. Still, there is no Winter Weather Advisory anywhere in southeastern Kentucky as of this update…

I mean, 4″ of snow couldn’t even get Jackson to issue an Advisory earlier this winter, so a coating to 2″ sure won’t. (Insert eye roll an cue the trolls)  Baiting these people is way, way too easy! 😉

Here are your tracking tools for the day…


Pine Mountain


Mt. Vernon



Frigid temps move in tonight with readings dropping into the teens. Wind chills may briefly reach single digits by tomorrow morning.

Friday afternoon looks awesome with a mix of sun and clouds and temps closing in on the low 40s. Saturday looks like the best weather day of the week and for the next week. Highs make a run at 50 with some sun.

Clouds increase Sunday ahead of our next system. That throws rain in here from west to east by Sunday evening and continues into Monday. Modified arctic air comes in behind this as another system rolls through behind it, bringing the potential for mid-week winter weather.

The models are going toward a cold and wintry look to end the month…

I will have the latest on WKYT starting at 4pm then again on KWC this evening. Have a good one and take care.

    Good to see folks in S.E. KY picking up some snow.
    A little late but it is good to see. (If you like snow)

    Those snow pics are mostly from some of the highest elevations in the state. Look at the Corbin Cam and the radar shows snow over it but the ground is green.

    I read an article earlier that said the cold is bottled up in the extreme northern part of the world and didn’t look to be changing for a while. That is what is causing the mild Winters because the cold will not let lose. Talked about brief shots of cold, including the upcoming one, but really nothing that would change the overall pattern anytime soon.
