Watching The Next Clipper

Good Saturday evening. The snowfall today was impressive across much of central and eastern Kentucky. Several spots topped out around 3″Β  on the day and we have more to come later tonight into Super Bowl Sunday.

Western and southern Kentucky will get in on the action during this time and may pick up an inch or two. All areas of the state will see another round of the white stuff that can put down up to another inch.

To those complaining about not getting much snow today… check out the forecast map, it says THROUGH SUNDAY!! It’s only Saturday evening. πŸ˜‰

You can see how the snow builds back in on the GFS…


Have a great rest of your evening and take care.

    Thanks Chris, sounds good another inch or two will go great with the 3 1/2 we already have hear in johnson county.

    • chris g in clay county says:

      Chris did say through Sunday. I didn’t see a lot today but seeing some now. Just walked from friends house down the road and it was pouring when I come in. It keeps that up we will get a inch or two by morning.

      Thanks chris

    Thank you Chris for your dedication…this blog helps a lot of people prepare for upcoming weather events. Letting you know that you are appreciated!!

  5. Coffeady says:

    Thanks, Chris. To clarify, I wasn’t complaining, just wish in’ we could get in on the fun. Appreciate all you do! Kudos to all of you who have seen the white today!

  6. Virgil Edwards says:

    Im very appreciative of Mother Nature for not leaving much snow around my Part of Estill County.. Snow causes problems with travel and that is something I don’t need.

  7. KeavyMan01 says:

    Appreciate everything you do Chris. Would love if Laurel and it’s surrounding Counties would get involved with some of this snow love everyone seems to be having. Keavy might have picked up a little over a dusting today. Sitting at 1″ total for the season is harsh when areas all around you has been BLESSED. But, 1″ is better than 0″. There is always next winter.


  8. sue(Flatwoods,KY) says:

    We have between 4 1/2 – 5 inches of snow on the ground between Fri and today! My 10 yr old twins have had a ball today! Waiting to see what else is coming! Thanks Chris for all of your hard work and dedication in keeping us informed so we can be prepared for whatever is coming our way!

    For us folks south of the river, the clippers are performing like the Cats. Promising up front, looks a sure thing and then BAM! Not so much. Eight point lead gone in 80 seconds. Almost like the Cats are giving it away.

  10. Andy Rose says:

    one word describes the lack of snow in the tri-county sad

  11. MikeM says:

    One thing is Chris didn’t mention anything about rain tomorrow. On the last thread one of Chris’s most ardent supporters said tommorrow would be all rain.

  12. Andy Rose says:

    faith in the cats =faith in snowfall forecasts

  13. 3789N8434W says:

    Snow on snow on snow….and Tuesday! more snow!?

  14. Ben in Lexington says:

    Snow late tonight,most of tomorrow and Monday. Have 7″+ on south side of Lexington from past 3 day. Could be possibly get another 4″ plus for an even foot??? Humm

  15. nor'easter says:

    Again, Berea with nothing today. There were a few flakes flying but nothing accumulated. Maybe tonight, but I’m not holding my breath!

    • BubbaG says:

      Not much in North Madison either, but folks to our north are talking about several inches of snow. I still think most are counting what already fell, but that is just a thought and I have ZERO desire of going to verify. All I know is I work in south Lexington and Friday evening there was already about 2″ still on the ground that I think probably did not melt overnight. I could go as low as 1.5″, but there was still snow.

      Regardless, irrelevant for about 2/3 of the state that did not get much of anything. I think I am going to Ben’s house to makes snowmen with his snow total of 7″. If it is drift against a wall, I am going to be upset πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

      • Ben in Lexington says:

        No drifts Bubba. We had several heavy bursts of snow this afternoon also. You are welcome to come over.

      • Rachel says:

        I measured the snow on top of my car this afternoon (drove to EKU yesterday in the bright sunshine so definitely nothing left on there as of last night) and had a fresh 2.5 inches. About 3 when I measured in the yard. So yeah… if that helps πŸ™‚ (I live over in the clays mill/lane allen area of lexington.)

  16. Bradc says:

    Nothing in knott co the 2 inches from Thursday night are pretty much melted

  17. Crystal N Pikeville says:

    Snow still falling in Pikeville.

  18. turner says:

    total snowfall today for S/SW Breathitt Co 0.42″. Suits me fine. not fun going down snow covered hills even in 4 wheel low.

  19. sue(Flatwoods,KY) says:

    they have canceled the winter weather adv for us here in Greenup Ky! are we not expected to get snow tonight to tom in my area?

  20. NikkiEKY says:

    between 5-6 inches here in Pike County and the snow is still pouring. Its amazing how surrounding counties practically have nothing.

  21. Joseph says:

    Overnight A slight chance of flurries. Increasing clouds, with a low around 27. West wind around 7 mph.
    Sunday A chance of snow, mainly before 1pm, then a chance for flurries. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 36. Breezy, with a west wind 5 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

    The above is the NWS forecast for Somerset. Need I say more?

  22. which way is the wind blowing says:

    nice band moving through st.louis i am on now cast mode

  23. MikeM says:

    I have a hard time looking at radar and telling what is real and whats virga and whats real but the stuff blowing through St. Louis is headed for Bowling Green and Southern KY looks to be fairly stout. The heaviest stuff looks to blow south of Central KY.

    • trailrunner says:

      It had better be heading for Bowling Green!. We are at a Trace of snowfall for the season and only had 1.2″ all of last year!! All of these storms have gone around us on one side or another for the last 2 years.

  24. Dara says:

    About 4 inches in Johnson County… thankful to finally see SNOW!! I had no idea that areas closeby here got little to nothing….hope u all pick up some tomorrow!

  25. brandon says:

    The swath of snow moving into western KY looks interesting

  26. MarkLex says:

    Ok – wait

    7 inches in Lexington? I think not…..Yes we had a mini blizzard that dropped 2 inches, then we had another 2 yesterday…… a total of 4.1 inches so far I think? But even though the temps were very cold, that bright sunny day took care of some of the snow. I think it’s called “sublimation” where snow can evaporate even with temps well below freezing. (correct me if I’m wrong). It has been a nice winter session these past few days. I have no complaints at all (at least locally) …….Sorry for those of you who didn’t receive anything

  27. MarkLex says:

    Woodsman –

    You’ve had 5 times more snow than Chicago
