Southeastern Ky Snow Threat

Good Wednesday afternoon. Snow lovers across southeastern Kentucky have got to be loving the latest trend of the forecast models. The storm we’ve been telling you to keep an eye on for more than a week, continues to trend farther northwest. That means a greater impact on parts of Kentucky.

The NAM and GFS are VERY impressive with the snow totals in the south and southeast…

NAM Snow GFS SnowfallIf the late afternoon runs show something similar… the blog may go straight into Alert mode.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the famous northwesterly trend of storms kicks in on this one? That would put more of the state in play for heavy snow. On the flip side… any wobble southeast would take the heaviest snows outside the state.

I will have another update later today. Have a great afternoon and take care.

    Hope the NW trend continues even farther north……we’d love some snow in Johnson County :)

  2. Coffeady says:

    Ahh beautiful but it will somehow manage to miss Pulaski County

  3. Lincoln says:

    This will go north or south of areas currently marked for snow. Sorry guys, I wouldn’t want to be in the spot showing snow, until the snow is on the ground! Lol

  4. brttnyj says:

    Is this for tonight?!

  5. Snowgoose says:

    Can’t figure the disconnect between the models and the forecast for Southeast Kentucky for low 40′s on THursday. It’s like two parallel universes. How can it be so different?

  6. dawnp007 says:

    Please move north!!!!!!

  7. Deanna says:

    yeah, yeah, I’ll believe it when I see the white stuff on the ground.

  8. Todd says:

    Again, here we go with just one corner of the state getting snow while most go snowless again, congrats to those get it, life in the snow dome continues :(

  9. Carrie says:

    Sure wish we could get in on some snow! It seems like here in Carter County we couldn’t even buy some snow! It always goes above us or stays below us :( I WANT SOME SNOW!!!!! Old Man Winter so far has brought me nothing but disappointment!!

  10. dawnp007 says:

    Better yet, a move more northwest would be awesome! Holding my breath here in Jackson County!

  11. BubbaG says:

    I am waiting for the next three events. North, east and west of central Kentucky. Bring spring! :)

  12. Horace Greeley says:

    Go northwest, young storm!

  13. Weatherdadof2 says:

    Let’s have a push northeast about 75 miles! 6 inches or more might make up for the ice and mud:)

  14. Bgbecky says:

    I think the bubble is over BG! We NEVER get anything…. Seriously! :-)

  15. Tim says:

    This would have to move about 100 miles further north to affect Louisville. We have had a snow dome over us for years. We will always get the dry slot and people north, south, east and west will get snow. It looks people to our east will get this one. Then the cold, dry air will set in. Then it will get to around 34 and we`ll get rain again. I have had around 1/2 inch so far this winter.

    • Danny says:

      What???? Officially Louisville has had 3.5 inches of snow. A few weeks ago parts of Louisville had 5.0 inches on the ground. NE Jefferson County, may not of happen in your back yard but NE corridor of Louisville had 5.0 inches. In the past 10 years Louisville has had some decent snow’s. Totally disagree with your statement completely. As a matter of fact I think Louisville is one of the more fortuante city’s in KY when it comes to snow and severe weather.

    • KeavyMan says:

      Down here in southern Laurel County, we have received only a small trace of snow. Such a small amount that even when it was on the windshield, you could still see inside the car. I am looking forward to finally getting something more than NOTHING! 1/2″ is far more than we have had here. You’ve been lucky so far.

  16. james says:

    Well, if central ky shows snow on the model runs, it seems to
    move north. Now watch it move south since it’s already south of central ky. Ugggghhhh.

  17. Andy Rose says:

    If Only

  18. Rickie says:

    You think this will be “wet heavy” or “light and fluffy”?.
    Ever how it goes we got a generator.

  19. BB says:

    I think that we CB and the other mets start doing their job and informing people about the possibilities of a storm they jinx us. CB you just put the jinx on this storm. Watch it run south! Haha j/k CB you do a wonderful job and are greatly appreciated.

  20. Ready4Snow says:

    LOL….The famous DT on wxrisk has pikeville 12+….

    • Ready4Snow says:

      also the euro is spitting out some impressive snow fall amounts…Southern virginia 8-12…..Please little snow maker move just a little NW…

  21. DougT10 says:

    Just looked at Margusity’s snowfall area looks like far Southern East KY counties may get in on the snow every met has a different forecast I get so frustrated to be so close to the snow, Laurel County but yet so far away. And of course the temps I just can’t figure out right now it’s 38 at my house I talked to my sister in law in lives in Caryville TN she’s has a temp of 34 now that’s seems strange to me.

  22. When? says:

    When will it start?

  23. rolo says:

    folks it not IF but how much for SE KY, im afraid be short lived poweroutages which will not be that bad.

    Im confident to say 6-12 inches snow will fall from my area in CLAY CO south and east.

    look for tonite evening moidels to trend futher north/NW noway missing only how much. its not going move to far south at this point. WINTER STORM WARNING issued by nightfall, the NWS are scrambling as they been caught off guard

  24. Todd says:

    This snow forecast for south east ky will create its on cold air from upper level cold , a lot of snow storms in the south do this, North Carolina mountains will get hammered from this storm!

  25. Tom in Rockcastle says:

    LOL North, South, East, and West, I am serious you couldnt make this stuff up. Round and around the snow goes where will it stop, not in Kentucky.

  26. DougT10 says:

    I am pessimistically optimistic at this point LOL.

  27. Sarah says:

    Any chance of black ice/freezing fog in the morning since it didn’t clear out today? Lots of ice still on trees!

  28. DougT10 says:

    Look at this weather statement from Jackson Weather Service. I f you notice it’s from the Nashville Weather Service. Seems JWS can’t issue there own. I bet they’re scrambling right now just has Rolo stated.

  29. Crystal In Pikeville says:

    Chris any idea when this Rain will wrap up for us in Eastern Ky The water just keeps rising?

  30. james says:

    18z NAM didn’t trend NW. No snow for central ky :(

  31. WendyT says:

    Looks like no chance of snow at my place. It probably wouldn’t go too well with the 8″ of mud I have anyway.

  32. Jeff Hamlin says:

    Chip Kelly and Rolo must hang out often. ;)

    • Go Cards says:

      I love Oregon I’m staying. Oh hold on a second the NCAA is giving us sanctions. When is the next plane to Philly?

  33. mikew says:

    Rolo how much snow do you think corbin may get out of this one?

    • BubbaG says:

      based on the track, if you do not get any, not many at all will in KY, save for the border area that could be territorially argued to be another state ;)

  34. Neil says:

    This will likely verify, based on one thing: it shows no snow for central Kentucky!

  35. Cosmokramer says:

    Yards, Yada, Yada….blah, blah, blah

  36. Mae says:

    can someone please tell me what it looks like for London Ky, and what time it is looking to start tomorrow. thanks

    • Weatherdadof2 says:

      I read on a NWS discussion that it may change over to snow just after dawn, which may be frustrating for the schools. Here’s to hoping:)

  37. MarkLex says:

    If that doesn’t trend northwest, that’s mother nature’s sarcasm at its best!

  38. mikew says:

    Im sure if eastern ky gets a wsw the nws jackson will give atleast a 15 minute advance warning before the hardest of it hits

  39. MarkLex says:

    Well, my hometown (Brevard, N.C in Transylvania county) is under a winter storm warning! I’m jealous. But remember, in 1994 of January, I was still living there, and there was a winter storm warning for OUR area (not KY), just like now. What happened? MOST of KY got hammered with snow and we didn’t get ANYTHING!

      What happened to the 100% it was happening? ;)

  43. Dara says:

    Any hope for Johnson County?

  44. Andy Rose says:

    I doubt it gets past the mountains based on the cold front pushing it away. The mountains may get some but thats it.

  45. LD says:

    It apparently can’t move any further NW, as the immovable object that is the Berea Snow Dome, won’t allow it.
