New Year’s Eve Eve Update

Good evening, gang. Your friendly weatherude is dropping by for an update on a pattern that is locked and loaded for the start of the new year.

I have no changes on the next several days, and my thoughts on the setup for late next week haven’t changed. I’ve been trying to set you up over the past few weeks for the potential of a harsh winter pattern developing. That looks to be the case, and now the models are seeing the pattern I’ve been breaking down.

The European Model is about as harsh as you’re ever going to see from next Thursday through Saturday. It sends out one snow system on Thursday…


It then follows it up with a major winter storm for Friday and Saturday…


Taken verbatim, that would make it 3 years in a row for a biggie.

Temps behind whatever storm moves in here can tank. If we have snow on the ground, below zero we go…


This has the making of our first THREAT of the season. It’s important to only forecast the pattern and not to bounce around from model run to model run. The pattern favors significant winter weather for our part of the world.

I will update things later tonight. Make it a great evening and take care.

    Well….for the first time this season, there “might” be potential. While I’m still skeptical, If these maps were from any other model guidance other than the Euro I would certainly think nothing of it.

    I am thinking probably rain then the dreaded backside flurries and dry cold.

    Bought a 900$ snowblower 2 years ago in Nicholasville…..My Neighbors love me!…I keep the sidewalks and driveways clear on my street…then the mailboxes and garbage cans…I sweat at -22…..Momma Nature can’t stop me!

    Will be interesting to see how this pans out. December will wind up above normal in temperatures in Lexington (yet again) despite all the cold weather.

  11. Mark says:

    Looks like the storm will be below Kentucky into TN,NC, on the latest model run now. Cincinnati of course will be missed.

  12. BQ says:

    Well here’s one person hoping a big winter storm pans out. One of the best things about living in KY is the distinct seasons. So here’s to a big snowfall soon!
