Saturday Evening Update

Good Saturday evening everyone. Your friendly weatherdude continue to fight through a little bug, but I’m still watching each and every model run coming down the pike.

I have no changes to the thoughts I’ve been putting forward for a few days, now. Scattered showers will carry us into Sunday as temps hang on the mild side. The next area of low pressure works right on top of us Monday as it works to the northeast. That will bring rain and gusty winds our way before giving us the chance for a few snow showers or flurries by Tuesday morning. The European Model shows the cold air dipping in behind the low…

After a dry and dull Wednesday, the action quickly picks up again by Thursday. That’s when a powerful system works across the plains states and into the Great Lakes. That drags a big time front through here and delivers us a massive temp drop. Check out the impressive look on the European Model…

Rain and thunder early Thursday should quickly transition over to a period of snow behind the front. Northwesterly winds will then kick in and should be able to deliver us widespread snow showers and squalls on Friday. Temps by Friday should stay in the 20s with gusty winds making it feel closer to 10 degrees.

The pattern then keeps dropping cold shots and possible light snow makers our way through the weekend…

We will have to take those systems one at a time to see if they can put down some snow around here. Check out the Christmas Morning map. Notice the Arctic air across the Great Lakes and the warm air across Texas with low pressure developing in southeastern Colorado. Every single model has a similar look during that time. That’s very interesting.

I will have another update later tonight. Until then… What happens when Gangnam Style meets Christmas lights? Here ya go…

Have a great evening and take care.

    Thanks for the update, Chris. Feel well soon.

  2. WXman says:

    The day of Christmas may not be white, but at least it’s going to be plenty cold enough to make it feel like Christmas. That’s one day of the year when I hate warm weather.

  3. Joey Wilson says:

    Well, these possibilities of wrap-around snow vs a good southern storm don’t thrill me but it IS better than highs of 55 and rain. We hardly saw any COLD air last winter so perhaps these COLD shots are promising of more cold and snow chances in Jan/Feb.

  4. MikeM says:

    Moisture and temperature tend to be inversly related. Warm = Wet and Dry=Cold. So its hard to hold out for any leftover snow Thursday. But as Emmerson says, I’ll try to be positive.

  5. Which Way Is the Wind Blowing says:

    Can you say desperately seeking an over performing clipper system. I guess this season will be like WW1 trench warfare an inch per episode.

  6. Todd says:

    A nice dusting of snow and scattered on and off snow showers would be great, not enough to stop people from seeing their families and just enough to make the season bright, I’ll take it if we can get it, Merry Christmas All!

  7. emerson biggins jr. jr. says:

    I’m with ya’ Todd.

    I’ll take a little snow blowing around for Christmas and then maybe…a big one in January?

    Think SNOW!!!

  8. Mark II says:

    Just watched a local news cast here in Lexington — called for highs in the low 40s next weekend. Will be interesting…..

  9. Marsha says:

    I seen that to 27 give 23 for Saturday 36 gave 42 wonder which one is right…

  10. Misty says:

    NOAA weather forecast for Corbin is giving 32 for highs next Saturday.

  11. BubbaG says:

    I don’t know CB, it seems the snow expectations have declined, as I read the previous posts. At least the articulation seems diminished. I am sensing a sloooow posting back step from good snow chances to a few coating chances.

  12. Andy Rose says:

    seems the rain disapated before it got to my area hope snow doesn’t do the same IF it snows this winter

  13. Misty says:

    Come on folks, it can and has snowed at any time all the way up in 23 of April. I think that was in 2003 maybe 2004? We were up visiting from GA and it was my son’s birthday, the first time he ever saw snow and was old enough to notice. It was only a coating but it snowed! lol

  14. rakat says:

    I agree with Todd. A nice dusting of snow for Christmas would be great! Just enough to make it feel more like Christmas. However, not enough that would cause traffic problems and such.

    • BubbaG says:

      If that is your expectation, you should be happy. I simply look at the posts from CB and it seems the snow meter has went from about a 60% to about 20%. Perhaps the cold will do the same old thang’ and push the moisture out. Very normal for around here. Cold air and moisture do not mix very well in the heart of Kentucky.

  15. Emerson Biggins says:

    POWER OF POSITIVITY. Its going to happen

    • Aaron C. says:

      I am POSITIVE it ain’t gonna snow much before Christmas. How you like them apples?

      Might as well sound old and mean….that grinch is in for some stiff competition this year.

  16. Misty says:

    A coating is better than nothing however. I would like to see some good snow, but not the heavy wet stuff that paralyzes the community with power outages, etc. for days on end.
