Good Friday to one and all. Our frigid January rolls on across Kentucky and there isn’t much of a break on the way as this pattern remains locked in for the long haul. In addition to the cold air, we are also tracking a series of clippers starting this Sunday and going into next week.

One or  two of those may develop into a much bigger system into next week.

Let’s start things out with the current cold then get to a Sunday clipper. Some areas are starting in the upper single digits with a wind chill around zero or a touch below. By the afternoon, most of us top out in the 20-25 degree range.

Saturday morning lows are when we can really see the numbers crash. A few spots can make a run at zero, especially those with snow on the ground. The GFS even shows a few of the colder spots hitting negative numbers…


B to the RR!

The Sunday clipper looks to mainly impact northern Kentucky with some light snow, but the tracks on these change often change within 24 hours. If you’re a snow lover, you want the Canadian to win out…


The American Models are farther north with this system…



The next system quickly moves in here by Monday night and Tuesday and may feature a much bigger storm. The GFS has rain to snow once again, but it looks rather muddled…


That’s actually a setup worth watching as it’s not far away from becoming much more of a phased system.

Another system will drop in behind that later in the week.

I’m starting to look ahead to February and one question jumped out at me. Can the month turn into a combination of the December pattern and the January pattern? It looks like another hyper-active month. Ugh.

I will have another update later today, so check back. Have a good one and take care.
