Eastern Kentucky Weather

Another Storm is Approaching

One system is out and another is on the way. The next one might have some issues getting its act together.

The weekend snow fizzled out in some places... especially... om eastern KY. I have yet to see any reports of significant snowfall anywhere in the region. You win some, you lose some! I actually started downplaying this system on Friday night at 11pm. Apparently, I didn't downplay it enough. The whole mood of the blog hasn't really had the sense of urgency this past week. Here I am downplaying it below!

By the way... we have a feature on our webchannel now that you can use to clip videos and post them to wherever you want! For some reason you have to have a Facebook account to clip the videos?!?!?!

The next system is already sparking watches, warnings, and advisories!

Notice the path of the of the advisories, watches, and warnings turn northeast. The Turn begins in Oklahoma and Kansas. Then you see Western and Northwestern Parts of KY are now under the gun.

NAM Early Tuesday morning.

GFS Early Tuesday Morning

These two images are for the same time on Tuesday morning. The moisture is a little quicker to arrive with the GFS. Each image does look pretty similar though. The catch is warmer air could intrude and will cause mainly rain to fall in the beginning. Just looking at this data. The cold air will eventually wrap in and change everything over to snow.

NAM Precip Type

Here's a catch... the moisture isn't guranteed to stay mainly rain. There will be an ice line that could be setting up.

The gfs is showing the same area of moisture right over the same spot. This line will be key! With the temp set-up that we'll have around here... we'll have to watch it closely!

This all begins late Monday night into Tuesday. I'll post some snow potential graphics later. I am waiting on some new data!

C-Ya Bye
