Just when you thought it was safe to make plans a few days in advance.... The snow returns!!!!! We started really discussing this completely on Thursday night and I issued a very shaky first call earlier. My confidence isn't shaky, just the general forecast that I issued was an early look at what I was thinking.
Here's an easy way to keep up with the new snow as reaches the area.
We certainly had a close call from the deep south's big storm. Some of the moisture tried to swing over the mountains and into eastern KY. So far I haven't seen any reports from any snow shower activity from that!
NAM Mon. Afternoon NAM Mon. Evening NAM Early Tues.
The NAM spread moisture in here a little later than in previous runs. It does keep it rolling through at least early Tuesday.
GFS Sun. Afternoon GFS Sun. Evening GFS V. Early Mon GFS Mon. Morning
GFS Mon. Afternoon GFS Mon. Evening
The GFS is really trying to bring the moisture un here on Sunday afternoon and it really increases by the time the evening rolls around. That's the timeframe I am leaning on for the beginning of this system. Some pretty heavy moisture shows up across KY for an extended period in these images. With the cold air following in behind the main energy I think the totals will add up rather quickly. The moisture is certainly there, but will the path, temps, and flow play out as it looks? That's why there is so much uncertainty about this mess! I didn't mess up on the GFS Mon. Evening... I blew it up so you could see that the moisture is still flowingon the back side of the system. I really don't see it completely wrapping up until early Wednesday.
Here's what the GFS is suggesting.
MY first call below is still up in the air and can change! This is something to work with and I will fine tune it as the weekend goes by.

49 states dusted with snow; Hawaii's the holdout
Everywhere you see white that means there is snow on the ground. This is truly an amazing thing to see!
I'll have more for you guys later!
