Good Tuesday all. Your friendly weatherdude is spending the night in the station and doing updates. You will likely see me on WKYT for the morning show that starts at 4:25am. I would be awake anyway, so I might as well stay here.
Superstorm Sandy continues to be a monster and delivered a devastating blow to areas of the Mid Atlantic and New York City. This was even worse that many thought it would be for those areas. The storm continues to push westward toward northern West Virginia.
That track is pushing rain and snow westward across Kentucky. Many areas of eastern Kentucky have already made the switch to snow and its sticking in several spots. Black Mountain in Harlan county already has 10″ on the ground. Lower elevations are also starting to get in on the act and I suspect that trend continues overnight into early Tuesday.
The NAM continues to hold strong on to the accumulation idea…
We’ll see how that works out, but I will stick with my lower total map from earlier. Melting should cut into those totals.
Winds have already been gusting to 40-50mph at times. Those winds will carry us into Tuesday and could cause some issues.
Since I will be up all night… I will be tweeting out information : @kentuckyweather. I will also be posting stuff on my Facebook page: Chris Bailey WKYT
I will drop by for another update later tonight. Take care.
