Good Thursday, everybody. A fast moving storm system is going to bring a swath of snow and ice to the bluegrass state late tonight into Friday. Today will feature several blog updates coming your way, so I won’t get too long winded with this one.
Let’s break it down with the ever popular headlines…
- A reinforcing shot of arctic air is on the scene today. Temps will generally run in the 20s for afternoon highs.
- An area of low pressure will develop to our southwest tonight and roll eastward across the Tennessee Valley. This will cause light snow and an icy mix to develop across western and southern Kentucky tonight. That will quickly overspread the state Friday morning.
- This is a pretty fast moving system that will push through here on Friday. Much of the main swath of snow and mix will be out of the state by late afternoon.
- We have a frozen ground and that means this will have a fairly high impact on area roads.
- The NAM is colder and shows more precipitation than the GFS. I suspect the models will come into better agreement later today.
- Here’s the infamous First Call For Snowfall…
- I can promise you changes will likely be made to that map later today. The final call will come later this evening.
- Southern parts of the state have me a bit concerned because of the freezing rain and sleet threat. It could get pretty icy in some areas.
- Another arctic front will move through here Friday night and this will bring a round of snow showers and squalls into Saturday morning.
I will have updates coming later today. Make it a great one and take care.
