Good afternoon, everyone. It’s as ugly as we thought it would be for much of central and eastern Kentucky as rain, clouds and chilly temps combine forces. As we move into the weekend, we find another system dropping in by late Sunday and Monday. This should be able to produce some light snow and flurries as it does so.
Let’s begin with the rain train that’s soaking areas of southeastern Kentucky. A few spots will wind up with around an inch of rain on the day. Farther west and north, we are seeing much lighter rain that tapers off this afternoon. Still, for many, drizzle will hang around through the evening.
Here are your radars to follow along…
Low clouds linger into Saturday across the eastern half of the state with temps staying in the 30s in this area. A few flurries may also show up from time to time, especially in the southeast mountains.
Two upper level systems drop in from the northwest Sunday into Monday. One of these will likely phase with another system to our south, producing low pressure to our southeast. Where this phase happens will be the determining factor in whether we can just get some festive flakes or an out and out light snowfall.
The models are still trying to figure out the specifics, but all show the chance for light snow and flurries…
I’ll have another update on that coming up later this evening. Enjoy the rest of the dreary day and take care.
