Eastern Kentucky Weather

The Storm Is Coming

The next big storm is on the radar and has some potential. The problem I have is the whole mess factor that goes along with this one.

The first leg of this system will bring a warmer airmass in and that means a wetter snow. We'll also see a some rainfall mixed in for a while too! I really believe most of our southern counties will see mainly rain tonight, while the wintry mix will be along the Mountain Parkway and closer to I-64. That's the area I have targeted for best possible ice accumulation.

 

The actual mix line will be interesting to make out. I do think we'll see on as we head through time.

NAM Tuesday Morning

GFS Tuesday Morning

The wintry mix/freezing rain line is right over the areas I mentioned earlier. Making for a mess around here overnight. Notice the rain in the south on both images, the green, it'll stay there a while.

NAM Very Early Weds

GFS Tuesday Evening

It takes the NAM a few hours longer to change everything over to snow. It's also only throwing it in here on the isolated variety. I am with the GFS on timing and the coverage. I think there will be a wide area covered with snow on the radar Tuesday evening. The Tuesday evening thru Weds morning will be the best time for the heavy snow. Same timeframe for the accumulation to begin to really add up!

GFS Snow through Thursday AM

NAM Through Thursday AM

My call for snowfall looks like this...

  • Starts as snow through the area.
  • Changes from Snow to Rain from south to north.
  • Periods of a wintry mix could be possible as the transisiton is occurring.
  • Southern KY could mainly see rain until late Tuesday.
  • Snow showers wrap-up on Thursday.
  • The first snow that arrives will be wetter but will become lighter as temps drop.

I'll have more for you later!
