Hey, Chris. Thanks for the update on this crazy weather! I need to drive from Louisville to Hazard. Is it safe on I-64, Mountain Parkway and Ky Hgwy 15?
Is Huntington going to get anything in the next couple weeks? I would rather ask and trust you then ask and trust WSAZ.
I can’t comment! It keeps saying “awaiting moderation” please help!
I hope Ashland independent will be closed Monday!
Is there any plans to fix the Kentucky Horse Park cam it had been off line the last three months
weather is a day late..whats up.
I have watched you for years and your station you work for is more accurate than any station I have ever watched .
Chris, love your work, and enjoy reading every day! I do, however, want to point out that your daily date stamp has been behind one day for about the past ten days. Just thought I’d mention this.
Keep up the good work!
I’ve had difficulty accessing your website for the last several days. Had to go back to an older version and save as my favorites to access your website. Another person had a similar issue. Thought you’d like to know.
I am planning to ride my bike from Georgetown to Lexington between the hours of 1:30-3:30. Do u think I will be able to beat the rain?
I have an outdoor program planned for tomorrow (Thursday, June 13th) with 40 people enrolled. Can you give me your opinion if there will be watches or warnings for Elliott County.
Thanks a bunch
I have been following your posts for a few years now. I tell everyone that I like your forecasts and updates better than anyone else locally. I live in Scottsville KY, but work in Lafayette TN. I especially love you always giving us your forecasts on the patterns and when things are changing (or not). I’m loving the cooler than normal temps so far (I hate the heat) and love winter. So I’m voicing my love for snow and saying anything you can ever give me as far as what you are seeing for the upcoming fall and winter works well for me. Thanks for your great work!!

I want to start by saying I love this site!!! I was just wondering why the twitter feed no longer show’s up on the right upper corner. I know that is the way you send out a lot of updates on weather, especially severe weather updates.
I want to start by saying I live this site!! I was just wondering why the twitter feed is no longer showing up in the top right corner? I know that’s how you send out a lot of updates.
Chris, at Cast Away Farm outside Harrodsburg, we have received 2.75 inches of rain since midnight on our graduated rain gauge. James Culbertson
More fall and winter updates!
I definitely want to talk about this upcoming fall and winter!! Ask and you shall receive!! I hope your bringing news of an early cool crisp fall and lots of snow for winter!!
The summer of 2013 is much like the summer of 1966 cold and wet, the winter of 1967 was cold with much snow Washington DC had 31 inchs in late Feb.
I spoke with a lady who believes that we are in for a long fall and a very short and mild winter. Any thoughts…?
Chris, I live in Huntington,WV. We really miss you up here.
I am glad that I found your weather blog again. You rock on the weather.
keep up the good work.
would it be right to conclude that a cooler than normal summer give way to warmer than normal winter so the averages work out?????
what is weather going to be for saterday in butler county
Your weather emails are what my husband and I always look at. We still depend on you for our weather info, even though we live just outside of Ironton, Ohio. You are still close enough to give us a good idea of what the weather will be. Thanks for still being there for us.

Chris, you show a scale on the right side of you snow model, can you explain what that represents ?
Anyone know when Chris will have an updated blog about the snow? thanks
I was disappointed to miss your winter forecast, but some of us attend church on Wednesday nights. Many of those services start at 6:00PM. Can you post that forecast on Kentucky Weather Center for us? Thanks

I’m currently a subscriber to accuweather pro and have been for a while. I’m a meteorology student at ohio u. And cannot for the life of me find freezing rain accumulation maps. In the past I remember you posting these maps. Do you care to enlighten me on where you find those maps?
Was just wondering what your thoughts were on how the weather channel names winter storms?
I was wondering if you could tell me what KY average snowfall a yr is and what the 2013-2014 season has brought us. I’m using it for a report for college and if OK I’ll use you on my resource page. Thanks Bridgette

How many low pressure systems traveled up the eastern seaboard from the gulf in 1993?
I like snow in the winter as much as anyone, however I’d hate to loose this site because of the few folks that seem to think you control the weather. You do an excellent job predicting what is coming down the pike for us and I thank you for it. I always check this site to plan my week ahead, ( i check the Weather Channel for a current temperature, but their forecast on the local on the 8′s are off the wall most of the time, kind of like look out your window weather forecasting
Keep up the good work and don’t let us in the general public get under your skin. Congratulations on the UK win yesterday, I was for the other team but it don’t bother me when UK wins.When they don’t play against each other I want UK to win. I do always pull against Duke whoever they play for what the did against UK in that tournament game a few years back.

P. S. HOPE WE GET A BLIZZARD OR 2 & BELOW ZERO TEMPS, FOR ABOUT A MONTH !!!!!
What’s the snow accumulation for Hazard by 12pm tomorrow?
My son and I were recently talking about temperature extremes. Could you give us some insight into the last time Kentucky, especially in the Southeastern part of the state, experienced negative degree temperature readings? Also, was there ever a time in recent history in our state when high daily temperatures never got any higher than negative readings? He is twelve and I am 46. I told him that the coldest and snowiest that I ever recall were in the late 70s. We missed 6 weeks of school during one of those winters. Fun times for sledding. My dad and I even walked out a good piece on to the Ohio River where it was frozen.
I just want to say thank you for such a great, to-the-point weather site! I just typed in “central kentucky weather”, and zammmmm…. your site was there. No nonsense, pleasant and easy to read, and dealing with KENTUCKY. Thanks again for such great work.
Great on your layout. When the cold weather comes back later next week and into February do you think Louisville will get some of the snow too or just Eastern Kentucky? Thanks again Alan
Thanks for the blog and the diligence. Very much appreciated.
The current temperature at 5 miles west of Olive Hill, KY on US 60, is 38 degrees, the barometer is holding steady at 29.70, and the humidity is 83%. There was a little fine freezing rain at 10:00 pm.
Wanted to report that we had “thundersnow” here in Harrison County at around 7:30am this morning. It was pretty intense for a very brief while!
i miss your accurate weather.. so glad you have your own weather page !sometimes tony just dont get it quite right.. peace
How much snow will we get in Powell county will the snow be heavy or light let me know
Chris. I have to point out that you are the only one in local tv or at the Louisville NWS detailing what the bad impacts of this storm are going to be. Thank you. My son is wanting to go to Indiana Saturday and I have given him you blog post on how bad it will be driving on the interstate but I don’t think he is listening to me because the afore mentioned entities are not giving the public info on the real world effects this system will have on them. Thanks again for always looking out for the practical impacts of weather on us.

How’s bourbon county gonna look on Monday morn???
Hey how is bourbon county gonna look and feel Monday morning?
Hey friendly weather dude, I was enjoying another day off due to weather at a friends house so i decided to drop u a line. I always go to this web page first when I want to check whats in store for the southeastern part of the state. 9 out of 10 times ur money!! (dead on)
Anywho, try to work something up for Superbowl Sunday. I could always stand not having to work on Superbowl Monday.
We sure do miss you here in the tri~state area. How about throwing us in with your predictions.please.
Is this storm looking more likely to go a little farther north in its track?
Just wanted to give you a thumbs up for taking the high road with the other news stations!!! With them saying this was fake and all the other stuff, you was a bigger person!!! You are my families number one news guy!!!
Sleet here last hour in Anderson Co.
chris man I don’t hate ya as a person but I hate snow and ice.now the snow lovers on here can hate me all they want to.i don’t care.i can handle the rain better than anything.if anyone on here hates me because I hate snow and ice let them say so now.
Chris we sure do miss you here in WV! Having such a crazy weather winter and nobody does as good a job as you!
Accuweather is posting an ice storm warning for the Ironton Ohio area. Is this a mistake?
Chris, the models were wrong and you were right,by stating, “Don’t watch the models watch the radar.”
Hi Chris: Coudl not be happier that I came across your site….(don’t even remember HOW, but am thankful I did!) I appreciate the daily updates on the weather without any embellishment or hype!
Have one request….any chance you could incorporate the time into the date stamp on your blog posts? With the way the weather has been of late, things seem to change pretty rapidly (“like the wind” in fact ) and it would be great to know at what time you left your update.
Many thanks again for the superb reporting! ~mam
Alot of us here in Adair County have been using your site as our go-to place for the weather. You speak and explain in a way that even us weather novice can understand. And you are the most accurate weather adviser we have to depend on! Keep up the great work!
Chris, I live down in the mountains and want to commend you for your work and on the accuaracy of the information you provide.I often check the KWC multiple times each day for both updates and current radar. I really appreciate your service to the region. Thanks
I would like information on how to set up for you to visit our school. My students are studying weather on the days we are able to attend school right now!!
What you site needs are legends for the maps you
represent, I don’t know purple from pink, I go by legends
on all maps, and if you do have them, where are they.
A map is no good to me with out a legend.
I know winter had drug on and on , but I am wondering what your thoughts are on the Spring weather. Will it be as wild as this Winter was?
Hello, My is JoBeth Connelly. I am in the 5th grade in Mercer County. I will be doing a 4 H demonstration project on creating your own severe weather emergency kit. I was wondering if you could send me any information that I could use for my demonstration. My address is 1443 bondville rd. Salvisa KY, 40372. My mom and check ky weather center every day! Thank you very much!
Nothing depressing about the thought of cold and snow for one or even
two more months. Everyone is saying I can’t wait till Spring, sick of this
winter, etc. What about June, July, August, September – four long months of warm and hot weather – I don’t go around getting mad then.
Us cold lovers deserve four months of snow and cold just the same as
warm weather lovers, right??
I hope we get hit hard again, I know your tired of it, but I never will, so I hope we get the worst of it at least this one last time, hope that the models go that way, that’s for all the hard work you do, you are one of a kind, take care.
Well corkey apparantly you want to make a whole lot of people mad.I hope it goes the other way and we don’t get hit hard at all.period.
I started leaving occasional comments on the blog earlier this year… now my comments aren’t going through at all. Have I done something to warrant being banned? As far as I know, I have always been civil… I’m hoping this can be resolved soon.
Chris, i see the reason for all these weekend storms now, NO MORE 4 days scheduled off days for you! Just forget all about them, and sneak up on ‘em on Friday!
Chris, for some reason the blog will not let me post anything. Have been trying for about four days now. Is there a problem, or am I blacklisted? if so, what did I do?
You might find this interesting: http://ruckmaker.blogspot.com/2014/04/tornado.html.
Someone told me that our snow Tuesday morning (4/15) meant that for the first time in many years we had snow in Central Ky. in 7 consecutive months – Oct. ’13 through April ’14. How rare is this occurrence and when was the last time it happened?
I am having a birthday party sat for my daughter. I have looked at several sites and its not looking good as far as weather. But I trust your judgment more than anyone…..in your opinion as of now, is sat looking like wet weather in Owenton KY?
Here is a very good link to follow everyday. This is the Forecast Link for Owenton, KY. http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=38.536457388000485&lon=-84.84188867599966

I came across an article in The Kentucky Explorer titled “1816: The Year Without A Summer”. I would love to share this with you, Chris, if you haven’t read it! Amazing weather that year…snow in June! If you have access to this magazine, it’s the Sept. 2014 issue (Vol. 29, No. 4). I can copy and mail it or copy and email it (I think). Have a great day!
I’m an Architecture major at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. We are working on a project to help out the Red Bird mission in Clay County. I was wondering if you had any helpful weather/storm/climate information that you may think would be helpful in designing in this location. This would be ‘pro bono’ work on your part and would be VERY much appreciated.
Let me check and see what I can find you.
I have been a long time reader of your blog and always check it first thing in the morning. I am a teacher at a local elementary school, and my students are working on a KY magazine. One of the topics we’d like to cover is predicting weather in Kentucky. It seems to me that KY has some special considerations when putting together a weather forecast. I was hoping that one of my students could e-mail some questions about weather forecasting in the state to be included in our magazine. Your expertise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Hi Joy. Thanks so much for the kind words. I would love to answer any questions your students may have about Kentucky weather. I could even drop by to speak to your students. Just let me know.
The kids are very excited to begin working on their weather article. They have to do some research first before they would be ready to talk to you. We meet after school-2:45-5:00 on Mondays and Wednesdays. I was afraid that would affect your night job. They would love to see you in person, but I’m not sure that would work for you. You can e-mail my school account to let me know if that would be a possibility. If not, we will e-mail our questions to you. Thanks so much!
I’m having a frustrating time trying to locate current precipitation records for Madison and Jackson County. Can you please direct me to wherever those actual numbers are posted? Lexington records would be an adequate second choice. Not interested in forecast, but actuals.
Writing from SW Virginia, I want to say thanks to you. I follow a slew of meteorologists, but your blog is the first and last I visit daily. You are definitely one of the best in the business, and this potential snow for Halloween proves it by a mile. Every other met I follow either has said nothing or abandoned the idea when the models did, but you said otherwise and it’s proving to be correct. Once again, I commend and thank you Chris. Lastly, I notice you are a UK and Bengals fan. Well as aWisconsin Badger fan, I hope we meet in the Final Four again, since we never meet in football. As for the NFL, well, I’m a Jets fan. Yes we’re 1-7, and yes I still support them. Now that you’re done laughing about my NFL choice, thanks again. Looking forward to more posts.
Chris; may I suggest that when you make an update on your blog, please put both the date AND the time? On fast moving events, time of day of your observation is an important piece of information. And good information it is too! I (and several of my friends) actually follow your weather forecasts rather than the local Cincinnati ones. They tend to be too timid in their speculations. You instead say “this is interesting, but I’m not quite sure yet”. I get that; predicting weather is a difficult business, so I will take your speculations with the appropriate grain of salt. Thank you for your good work!
chris could you please post the link to the new gfs.
OMG Chris look at these photos!
Where is the 7 day outlook
I just heard somewhere that January will end on a warmer note, followed by a warmer than average February. This will set the stage for Spring’s early arrival. Any thoughts? Please comment. Thanks!
I hope it does rebecca because I refuse to have cabin fever.by the way I’m danny and its nice to meet ya.
Hello Danny, it’s nice to meet you too!
Thanks rebecca.I’m from harlan county ky.you?
Who is it that owns the barrell racing horse farm off 25 e there at stinking creek before ya get to the bridge?
I have absolutely no idea. Sorry…
The caption on the Weather Cam for I-471 South of US27 – Near Covington is erroneous.
I-471 runs north of US27 and is nowhere near Covington. It runs through Newport.
It should be changed to read: I-471 North of US27 – Near Newport
Why does Lexington/LFUCG not have access to the traffic control cameras?
Cool rebecca.you’re not far from me then.
The ice has hit Lewis county…..multiple wreckes along river roads…..shrieff dept asking people to take it slow…..
Why are the current readings or current conditions stuck? they haven’t changed for 2 weeks. Love this site, When I want to make plans I always check your forecast first. Thanks for having such a great website
Hi Mr. Bailey,
I am a reading teacher at North Middletown Elementary in Bourbon County and I am in charge of planning guest celebrity readers for Dr. Seuss week (March 2-6). Is there any chance you would be willing to come read to the students and perhaps talk about the weather any day that week? The kids would love it and I would make sure to find you a good weather book to read! Thanks!
I would like to receive emails and weather updates
I would like to receive your emails and updatesbon the weather please
I came across your information while researching for a new weather competition show I’m working on from the Emmy winning Producer of “The Voice” and “Celebrity Apprentice.”
We are seeking weather enthusiasts, meteorologists (freelance, not under contract), weather geeks, storm chasers, weather photographers, etc for a FUN, new competition show for a major network. Do you have what it takes to be “America’s Next Weather Caster?”
The show will include a series of challenges centered around the tagline: ‘Can you report the weather under any climate?!’ and we are looking for big personalities and people who love the weather and some fun competition! The winner of the competition will win a cash prize of $100, 000 and a one day platform to report the weather for a MAJOR network, along with a per-episode stipend.
This is a nationwide casting. Applicants must be 18+. Please note that interested individuals must be available March 3rd- through April 6th (1- 4 week commitment pending on how long you last in the competition) for filming.
I would love to see if you or someone you know may be interested and speak with you further about this opportunity.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Any clue as to if they are gonna call off state government employees out of work for tomorrow??? Or how do I find out???
Thank you so much for your continuous updates I check it all the time. Your work is much appreciated in the state of Kentucky and I have to say I have a new go to weather man! Gotta love those models!
Chris, I’m scheduled to move tomorrow, Sat the 21st. I have a 26′ Uhaul truck reserved. I’m moving from Nicholasville to just across the KY river. What do you think about keeping the plan to move? Will it even be possible? Do you think it would be better if we changed it to Sunday? Your thoughts and expert advice is greatly appreciated!
May our Lord grant you rest and wisdom in all areas… glad to see some rain in Williamsburg (one who abhors losing electricity, thus my heat). “If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind”?
