Wednesday Evening Update

Good Wednesday evening everyone. Well… it’s just about game on for some wild weather across the commonwealth. Our big storm will drag a cold front through here Thursday and that means everything but the kitchen sink is being thrown our way.

I’m going to let my WKYT maps do the breakdown…

Period 1 Period 2

Period 3

Snowfall

I highly reccommend securing those outdoor Christmas decorations before the winds start to crank. Speaking of Christmas, check out our WKYT holiday promo:

Enjoy the evening and take care.

    That’s a great promo, except for Chris getting hit with the snowball. I must say, though, that I always enjoy the promos featuring the kids of the WKYT staff. I haven’t seen one of those this year.

    The weather tomorrow will be my least favorite — windy! Well, an ice storm is worse. Hope I didn’t just jinx us. :)

    Dear Santa Chris, I would like 4 to 5 inches of snow on Christmas…. Oldham County… Please… I will leave out some cookies and bourbon. ;)

    So, earlier today I posted that the 12Z Euro looked favorable for snow (which it does). MJ disagreed and said the model kept us too warm for snow. I think we must be looking at different things. The 12Z ECMWF run I am looking at shows -10 temps at the 850 level. That translates to 14 degrees F at the surface. And that’s with the low in Indiana, very close-by. If 14 degrees with a low just to our north giving us a good fetch off the Lakes isn’t favorable for snow, then I suppose we are all just boned for the rest of this season.

    Andy, you’re very welcomed for my input. ;)

    Keep the faith people. It’s still likely that we see a rain to snow scenario but some of the data is suggesting otherwise.

      I’m on your side on this one WX!

      I suppose I was looking at the front end of the system, which indeed is way warm for snow. Yes, the cold air pours in behind with a rain to snow. The 12Z euro ensembles were further east with the system anyway, so I suspect that the operational models are not handling the blocking well. Considering the poor model continuity in both the operational and ensemble models, I can conclude that we’ll have a pretty significant storm next week in the east…however the details will come into focus later this weekend.

      Wxman I think your input is very helpful u don’t always agree with Chris but you have your opinion just like everybody else….

    Bring on the snow, if I can’t be floating on Lake Cumberland I want snow…

    If you go by the trends and model average, mix is best case fro next week. Will we get a trend buster, or a trend conformer?

  7. Ready4Snow says:

    Seems like everyone is not too excited about 50 mph winds and blowing snow….Tough crowd….Be safe out there everyone…50 mph gusts are nothing to sneeze at…
