Wednesday Evening Update

Good Wednesday evening, gang. I warned you it would be a wild weather ride and mother nature didn’t disappoint. Strong and severe thunderstorms rolled across the state the day. 4 tornadoes have been confirmed as of this writing.

The current focus is on the high water threat across southeastern Kentucky Numerous counties are under a Flood Warning…


The heaviest rain will slowly end this evening as a strong cold front works across the state. There will be a narrow band of showers and thunderstorms along the front and this may produce winds nearing 40mph at times.

Much colder air works in behind the front and this will set us up for some snow showers and flurries overnight. Temps will drop into the 20s and some slick spots will be possible on area roads.

A quick moving system will roll through here late Thursday into Thursday night. This will bring a swath of light snow to the region…


A coating to an inch will be possible for some areas. Arctic cold temps and flurries then move in for Friday with highs not too far from 20 degrees. Another light snow maker moves in for Saturday and Saturday night and that could bring another light snowfall.

A full update comes your way later tonight… If I can stay awake. 🙂 Take care.

    Well here comes the clipper systems we have been dying to see perform their over achieving magic.

  5. Chris Mercer says:

    Ahh–the beauty of the 33/32 rule. Temps are crashing now here in Lawrenceburg and the moisture leaves.

    At least I’ve hit the “big one” this winter–the EPIC snow of Christmas Week 2012.

    SNOW? Can someone please tell me what snow looks like so I can be sure to maybe see some. Epic Christmas snow brought Southern Laurel County 0″. Oh wait…..Southern laurel County has received no accumulation yet this season. Just some flying through the air. Anyways, basement is flooded and water continues to come in as rain continues to fall. Really could use a good solid freeze and snow cover to fix this nuisance leak. Please people, if you have had snow already this season accumulate, Don’t get mad because quite a few of us has seen NO SNOW! Be thankful and quit complaining….haven’t had snow since Christmas. At least Santa brought you some. He forgot us in SE KY. Oh yeah…so did SANDY and every other snow systems.

    lotsa wind and rain again in knox

  8. Bobt says:

    Time running out for an old school snow. Long range temps showing near normal the next couple of weeks and that is not good. Average highs hit 50 mid February in SE Kentucky. Maybe we will get lucky.

      You just can’t trust what Feb, Mar, or even April will bring. New data comes in several times per day and it always changes.

    No wind damage, or high water problems here in Lawerenceburg. This day was WILD for one reason though–it was 71 degrees at 0450. In January! I bet I don’t have a dozen days from June to August where it is that warm at 0450. And now it is 39 at 2104. Crazy stuff. A 32 degree drop from morning to evening, and still dropping. This meterological winter, so far, is warmer than last winter, but only need 3 more inches of snow to beat last winters’ total.

    alot of wind and rain here again tonight!!!!!

  11. Weatherdadof2 says:

    Everyone say it with me…”3 day weekend, 3 day weekend”…ready to see those school closings on Friday morning!

  12. pattyversailles says:

    Man, that wind just won’t stop!!

  13. Rxzr2 says:

    Is it just me or does the gfs and nam show 2-3 inches through Monday?

    • Which Way Is the Wind Blowing says:

      The Euro has been on the snow train for monday. BG at wave believes it,due to the fact that the two clippers prior to this event would bring in reinforcing cold shots. Who knows we might be able to build up to 5″ with theses minor events. But I would not hold my breath.

  14. Todd says:

    Hey here is a New complaint, every forecast always is the new work week, maybe we choose not to work, what is the forecast then, the new none work week forecast??

  15. Char says:

    If it’s not thundering in Perry County, then half the mountain must have come down. I just heard a loud rumble!
    Thank you Chris for keeping us updated and losing sleep while doing it.
    We truly appreciate you!

    • Char says:

      Oh my goodness. It was a rock and tree slide. Some of my neighbors also said that other roads are in horrible condition tonight. Everyone be careful.

    • Ben in Lexington says:

      I think that was the sound of the complaining on here or an avalanche in Colorado. Ground Hog Day…is almost here.
