Winter Storm Warning Central Kentucky

Good Tuesday, folks. The NWS upgraded areas of Central Kentucky to a Winter Storm Warning through this afternoon. A Winter Weather Advisory continues across the east…

We may see eastern Kentucky upgraded to a warning soon, as similar snows sweep through. This slow-moving band of snow is producing areas of 4″+ snows, with the bitterly cold temps really enhancing the ratios. A few pockets of 6″ will show up with such a slow-mover.

The bitterly cold temps are also a huge player. Many areas will struggle to get to 10 degrees this afternoon, with well below zero temps possible tonight. Wind chills are even colder and in the danger category.

Wednesday will find a few snow showers and flurries on the move with highs in the teens.

Here are your tracking tools for today’s snow in the central and east…

    Glad to finally see an appreciable snow here in Versailles. Still a lot more winter left so hopefully we will see more.

  2. Joseph says:

    I have exactly 2 inches on my deck just north of Somerset, apparently I’ve been in a lighter band area as I’ve heard others in the county with 3 inches or more.

  3. Coffeelady says:

    Thanks Chris. Here at my workplace, which is less than a mile from my home, we have about 3 1/2 inches and it is still snowing. We top
    Out at 4-5 yet. Sure is pretty! Stay safe and inside if you can!

  4. Kim Curtsinger says:

    So very done with winter already.

  5. Tim in Clay Co. TN/Monroe Co. KY says:

    Looks like we will end up between 3-4 inches here Northeast of Nashville along the KY/TN border. Very pretty. Pretty cold!

  6. BubbaG says:

    Just imagine if the Friday system panned out for areas besides west NW. The temps would probably not have got above freezing yesterday, so six-ish inches of snow insulated by ice and then this event. Could have saw up to a foot of total frozen stuff on the ground. Shut down central with this cold air.

    Missing Friday IMO was win as a result 🙂

  7. c-BIV says:

    NWS in Louisville reported peak snow ratios of 40:1 !! That is just a crazy number that is very rare in Kentucky. Makes sense how some areas got 6+ inches with not much qpf.

  8. Andy Rose says:

    Its almost to an inch here out of this storm. I’m not to hopeful on Caldwells totals.

  9. Bradc says:

    Not hardly an inch so far in knott county

  10. corey says:

    We got almost 4 inches here in greenup and roads are awful

  11. Jared from Letcher County says:

    Snow has finally picked up here six hours after it was supposed to start.

  12. Debbie says:

    Close to 5″ of new snow here in Bardstown, but amts. are varying depending on where I measure, so that’s basically an average! When I went to bed around 11:30 or so last night, no real accumulation from anything yesterday and it wasn’t even snowing. Sweeeeet surprise! My puppers are enjoying it, but I’m not when they come back inside with “The Zoomie’s”! LOL! 😀

    • Faye says:

      A “zoomie”? Do you have greyhounds?

      • Debbie says:

        Nope! A 12 y/o Border Terrier (he’s blind, so that’s an adventure on it’s own), a Mountain Cur, and a Jack Russell/Weiner mix that is IMO, the fastest thing on 4 paws! I would’ve thought the snow would slow him down a bit, but goodness, NO!!! 😀

  13. Jeff Hamlin says:

    No complaints from me on the snow. 🙂

  14. Doug says:

    Around 3 1/2 here in Bush area of Laurel County and still coming down looks like another heavy band moving out of Pulaski Co maybe get another half to inch

  15. Allen says:

    Finally took a VERY SLOW moving arctic front to overachieve and squeeze out a decent snow in Lexington. Personally, I was happy with the pace of it and got my winter fix.It was amazing to see that snow shield from TX to ME. Not looking forward to the single digit or below temperatures and dangerous wind chills the next couple of nights but warmer days are ahead!

  16. Jude says:

    Man I can’t wait to wash my Jeep!

  17. SK says:

    One of the prettiest and steadiest snows I’ve seen in a long time. Super big fluffy flakes just pouring down for hours. Have close to 6” I think (in Barboursville, WV, near Huntington). And I love that it came as an overachiever!

  18. Jen says:

    Finally, a decent snow here in the South Central part of Kentucky! Absolutely loving it! Everybody stay safe!

  19. Bradc says:

    1.5 inches here in knott county at 430

  20. Justin says:

    2 inches here in Hohenwald, Lewis county, 70 mi southwest of Nashville. We played in it all day. If that’s our big one for the year, then warm up I say… want to wet a line and start catchin some fish.

  21. Bradc says:

    System took off moving fast once it reached south east ky really cut back the totals here compared to elsewhere

  22. Formerly from KY says:

    Looks like major pattern change is coming with above average temperatures that might take us into March for The Eastern half of the US.

  23. jackson says:

    Still snowing here in the Belfry area of Pike County but it looks like we are almost finished with the snow as the system has really sped up here in the mountains. I say we have a good 3 inches on the ground. The cold out there tonight is impressive. I’m ready for a warm up!!

  24. Bobt says:

    Knox county got some decent results. Everyone gave up on it too early here. Andy got snow and don’t let him tell you any different. Pretty heavy snow started falling before it went by. At least three or four inches.

    • Andy Rose says:

      I got 2.5 inches. I don’t recall ever saying i didn’t get snow. I got what was originally forecasted but not but bumped up totals. I’m glad YOUR yard got 3 or 4 inches. Congrats Bobt. I am happy with my 2.5 it was more than i expected.

  25. Linda Czupkiewicz says:

    I live in MA and the snow started very light around 3 pm, we are suppose to get the heavy snow and bands around 4 to 9 am in the morning Wed. We are expecting up to 8 inches or more.
    I have a toboggan, looking for someone that wants one.

  26. Linda Czupkiewicz says:

    P.S. Is there a map somewhere, where the snow totals are.
