The air that rolls in here will also be part of the necessary ingredients to throw snow in our forecast. Which I still have in there if you were wondering...lol
Some very brief showers will work into Kentucky on Wednesday. I don't think any of it will be too heavy or last for a long period of time. The band of showers will be pretty thin and in most cases barely wet the ground. The moisture threat from this part of the system isn't what concerns me... my concern is the cold air and the timing of that cold air. It looks like it will begin spilling over into eastern Kentucky on Thursday. The first part of the coldest air gets here on Thursday night. It will likely run into moisture and we all know what happens then...
The timing has been an issue over the last couple of days. Will it be cold enough on Thursday night to change the moisture over to snow? It appears that this run has picked up and that and is showing that happening here above.
Here we are near sunrise on Friday and everything looks like it has over the last few days. The snow continues to work through the region.
Even the afternoon hours look to feature some of the snow sticking around the region. The air will certainly be cold enough for a mix and rain and snow... not sure it will stay snow the whole time though.
I have jumped a head a few frames...again... to show you when the system looks to begin wrapping up. By early Saturday morning the moisture should be on the way out and the cold will be the only thing left behind.
This system will likely open to door for a few more. The early parts of December look red hot! I will begin detailing another wintry system the could get here by the middle parts of next week and then maybe another for the end of the week. Mother Nature says she has some catching up to do and she really means just that! The cold and snow may become quite the common thing to read here in the blog.
