Good Tuesday evening. We’re slowly clearing things out across central and eastern Kentucky this evening. Our day was filled with clouds, stray flurries and temps barely getting above freezing. The weather over the next few days still looks very good, but my attention is firmly focused on the weekend and next week.
We have one system moving in this weekend that will bring rain to our region. Temps will also drop behind this area of low pressure working through the region.
That sets the stage for a bigger storm to form early next week to our southwest. There continues to be a huge signal for this event and the models are getting on board. Check out the last 3 runs of the GFS for next Tuesday…
That’s a week from right now and you can’t look at placement and precipitation because that will change with each run of every model. The point there is a storm on the models and the overall pattern favors a significant winter storm developing during this time. What, if any, impact it has on our weather remains to be seen. This is just further illustration of how much the pattern has changed.
I will have a full update later tonight. Have a great evening and take care.
