Rain Changing To Light Snow

Good afternoon, winter weather weenies. Rain is making the switch to light snow from west to east and that sets the stage for some small accumulations for some into tonight. Once this system pushes east, we focus on two more light snow makers moving in for Friday and Saturday.

Coatings will show up with this evening through Thursday morning, with the mountains of southeastern Kentucky doing a little better. Whatever snow you see in the morning will be gone by the afternoon as the sun returns and temps go above freezing.

A clipper looking system brings a swath of light snow by Friday morning with a few snow showers holding into the afternoon. Light accumulations that morning may time up to create a messy AM drive for some areas.

The next system is looks to arrive a little quicker with a Friday night and early Saturday impact. Again, light accumulations will be possible across central and eastern Kentucky. Southeastern Kentucky will do better than the rest of the state.

Here’s the action showing up on the GFS…

Following this is a big surge of spring temps as we open March. The numbers should reach deep into the 60s next week with the potential for strong storms and heavy rains. Ugh.

As always, I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm then again on KWC this evening. Until then, I have you all set to do some rain to snow tracking…

    Thanks Chris. Loop pls like the light snow iOS sneaking into western Ku a bit earlier than anticipated. Hopefully that means I will see some flakes on the air before it gets dark. At least I’ll have a chance before the week is out. Have a good afternoon everyone.

      Hello, Coffeelady! It makes me really happy to see you back here commenting with us! 🙂 Hope you continue to improve each and every day. We’ve missed you! <3

      I, too, am hoping to see some snowflakes flying here in my neck of the woods(Bardstown). Some is better than none, which is about all we've had since our little piddly 1.5" back in November! That isn't good for me or the other snow lovers, but as you mentioned before, it'll be nice to see some spring-like weather. If we aren't going to get any snow, it should at least be pretty rather than all this rain, right? We just moved back in Oct. and I am already getting excited about planning my gardening projects, both veggies and flowers, new shrubs and trees, etc!

    There are a few words that have not been mention this winter or for a few winters. The words are blowing and drifting. The only thing I know about that is me blowing my nose all winter because of sinuses and drifting off to sleep waiting on those Big Snow Storms that never came.
