Good afternoon, folks. It continues to be all eyes on a developing storm system across the deep south. This storm dumped more snow in Amarillo, Texas in a few hours than what New York City and Boston have had the entire winter. Think about that one for a minute.
This same system will work across the deep south and then up the east coast by Saturday. That will impact our weather with rain and a mix developing from southwest to northeast on Friday. As the air cools, a period of wet snow will develop Friday evening into Saturday morning.
I have no changes on the areas with the best chance of seeing some sticking snow…
With temps close to 32 degrees, we would need some heavier bursts of precipitation to develop if we want some snow on the ground. The GFS develops one of those bands right on top of central Kentucky…
That also shows the super duper sharp cutoff with this system on the western side.
I will try to get a first call map out later today, but the banding features will make it hard to pinpoint exact amounts. I’ve seen a lot of folks throwing out numbers on my twitter feed over the past few days. Too many variables for me to be doing that. Regardless, I will get the blame for those forecasts, anyway.
Enjoy the afternoon and take care.
