Good Friday afternoon. Snow showers and squalls continue to do their thing across the state today. My suspicions of thunder and lightning being noted with some of these turned out to be correct. Lots of folks across central and northern Kentucky had some loud booms this morning.
Additional accumulations will be noted in the heavier squalls this afternoon and early evening. Winds will continue to crank as temps drop into the teens. Wind chills may head close to zero at times. Lows tonight may hit the high single digits and low teens.
The next clipper zipping in from the northwest looks to pack a pretty good punch. Take a look at the simulated radar from the NAM…
That has the potential to bring a swath of 1″-3″ snows with it… especially across the northern half of the state with slightly lower amounts in the south. Winds will be gusty and that means some blowing snow is likely.
The cold air overwhelms the pattern early next week. Temps Monday will drop through the 30s and 20s as a srong front drops in with some light snow into Tuesday. That’s when highs drop into the teens and try to stay there for the rest of the week. Low temps may threaten to hit 0…
There will be a couple of snow systems diving in here next week. One comes Monday or Tuesday… another by late week… then watch next weekend into the following week. That’s the period to watch for our first storm threat as the polar vortex starts to work southward again.
We have a brutal stretch of winter weather ahead for much of the country. You’ve been warned for a while, now.
Have a good one and take care.
