Updated Call For Snowfall

Good afternoon, everyone. Our spring snowmaker is looking a little better organized and a touch slower. This should bring a swath of history making snows across much of the state tonight into Saturday.

As mentioned before, the bar is low for historic snows for the month of April. If we use Lexington as our baseline, it only takes 1″ to become one of the top 10 snowiest Aprils of all time. My updated call for snowfall shows many areas with the potential to eclipse that…

I’ve opened up by range to include much more real estate, because the swath of snow looks healthier and will last deeper into Saturday. I’ve also tried to highlight the southeastern mountains, where some higher amounts may occur. Instead of ending early, the snow band may linger into the afternoon, especially across the east…

As we inch closer to this, you can see how the storm is just a little strung out. This is turning out to be a much closer call with a crusher than it looked like yesterday. Gotta watch for last minute trends tonight.

A Winter Weather Advisory is out for much of central and eastern Kentucky…

Obviously, I think those should be expanded to include much of the state.

I will be updating the forecast on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm. This will include a new call for snowfall, that will be constantly updated as I see new information.

In the meantime, let’s track some showers into parts of the region…

I will have another update this evening. Have a good one and take care.

    Thanks CB! The good news is it should not be a big heavy power killer like it could have been for some.

    If it turns out to be 1 inch or less..Ill be very happy…Bring on the 70s end of next week!!

    The biggest snow I have ever seen was in April of 87 in Pike Co. 32 inches. It was the only time I shoveled snow off a roof

    And just yesterday I was tickled that my area wouldn’t get any snow… looks like we will now but still hope it doesn’t.

  6. Mike says:

    OK – I love a good thumping of snow… but, I don’t like damaged trees and down power lines. I can’t imagine snow this time of year being anything other than the heavy, wet variety. More than a little bit could lead to the damage I am fearing… The snow of a couple of weeks ago brought down some heavy limbs and a lot of power lines in my neck of the woods.

    So, for my first time in all the years of this blog – I am on the fence about wanting the snow or not…

    I have a feeling this is going to be another last minute winter storm warning event for a few of us!☺

    • Troy says:

      I doubt it Terry. NWS doesn’t seem to do last minute…for example, 18″ snow three yrs ago. No warning and NWS was still calling for 2″-3″ after we already had 10″ on the ground. True story…

        We have about as much chance of this being a big snow as Knox changing his mind and staying at UK for a sophomore year.
