Good Monday, everyone. Light snow and snow showers are pushing across the region today, putting down light accumulations for some. The focus, though, is on a developing winter storm that targets the region Tuesday night through Thursday.

Before we get to the big system, let’s begin with the light stuff out there today.

Rounds of light snow and snow showers will be noted across central and eastern Kentucky. Pockets of freezing drizzle may also show up, especially early. Some light sticking snow will be possible in these areas with the greatest chance for an inch or so of snow being in the high mountains of the southeast.

With temps around the freezing mark, a few slick spots can’t be ruled out. Here are your radars to follow today’s flakes…

Let’s get to the heart of the weather matter and that’s the mid-week system.

I’m still watching the same area as before for the greatest possible impact…

You can see how I’m highlighting the northern and western parts of the state for the greatest risk of decent snows.

Here’s a breakdown of how things may play out:

  • This is a far-reaching storm that will impact areas from Texas to New England.
  • Rain and snow move into Kentucky Tuesday night.
  • A heavy band of snow will likely impact areas of the north and west. This takes us into Wednesday morning.
  • This band of snow can be a thumper of a wet snowfall for a few hours.
  • Areas across the south and southeast are mainly rain.
  • The actual low pressure looks to move across Kentucky on Wednesday, with a switch to rain for a few hours.
  • As the low goes by, cold air quickly rushes back in with wraparound light snows developing Wednesday evening.
  • A healthy wraparound light snow event then looks likely for most of the state Wednesday night and Thursday.
  • Snow showers would linger into Friday.
  • Snowfall from Wednesday night through Friday could be on the tune of 1″-3″ for many.
  • I expect some snow days later this week.

The models are in pretty good agreement on how everything plays out…




I’ll throw you updates later today. Have a good one and take care.
