Hello, It's Me... Winter

Just as many of you thought... winter hasn't had it's full run yet! That means more winter is coming and likely coming in a hurry!

Let's start positive here... one of my favorite songs  in the world is a song by Todd Rundgren. At one time I used it as a ringtone, but everyone made fun of me so I changed it from that to Exile's "Kiss You All Over" which is in my top 3! Anyway, just sharing the song to pass along to younger generations like you Derek! Brandon... I am not sure how old you are so I can't pick at you. Derek's an easy target since we play... well... played Xbox a few times together. He stopped playing with me for some reason...LOL.. Maybe it was because I slowed his teams down.  Anyway, here's a blast from the past!


The whole point of this song and dance is to... well... I can't find any use for it other than the title...LOL

The wonderful weekend was followed up by a round of rain that moved through early Monday morning. The rain stopped, but the clouds didn't go anywhere. The clouds may break up a little, but more moisture is on the way.

A very potent system is about to set-up close to New England. It is going to bring plenty of active weather to that entire region. What is known as the Megalopolis and points all around are in for one humdinger! We could see our fair share from this system as well

                GFS Tuesday Afternoon                                          GFS Wednesday Afternoon

Beginning on Tuesday a weak disturbance will move across Kentucky. This spread snow chances into the region again. Anything from this will be very light in nature and little accumulation is expected. It's all setting the stage for the images below.

                   GFS Thursday Afternoon                                                                GFS Friday Afternon

In each image you can see a very strong system sitting just off the coast and bringing in strong winds and a lot of moisture. The system is broad that it keeps KY in the right flow to see snow. This really picks up Wednesday night and into Thursday. If we are going to pick up any accumulation at all, with this set-up, it will be bewteen Weds night and Thurs. night. That's with what we are looking at right now. We are still a few days away from this system taking control of our weather pattern. If this low slips farther to the south and maybe a little more to the west... we could see some decent stuff around here. It looks like a brute here!

It really looks like a brute here too... just not for us... yet! Some of the earlier runs were trying to pull this thing north a little more and didn't really show much accumulation here.

Now if that slips just a little more... maybe we end up with another round of 6-10" right now we are on a much lower level. Will it change? I think so... I'm not sure which way yet, but I will watch a few more runs and make a decision later. Hold on tight!

C-Ya Bye

    The wintry weather that is coming in next week, some people are talking that it is going to be a big snow, is that true? If so how much do you expect?

    Jim, I would like to see more snow, just because it is getting close to gardening weather and snow puts nitrogen into the ground. You will have a good garden in the spring and summer following a snowy winter. Thanks my pea's are ready for the sowing.

    Jim, I gto burned out on xbox there for a while. I was playing nearly 4 to six hours of CoD: MW2 a day and it was really affecting me. In a bad way. I was running on nearly three to four hours of sleep a day, and I was starting to feel it. I play occasionally still, just tnot that much Halo. As for this storm, I would like to see it slip a bit to the south and west, but it is unlikely. However, I think this may be priming conditions around here for a storm during the first week of March. Models have consistently shown a decent low in the SE US riding up the coast, but I guess we will just wait and see. I will have to re add you on the box though, I created a new account. Are you still jimmywx? Later all.

    Jim, When are you gonna find a song by SNOW with the title "GoodBye, I'm Gone"?
  • by MJ Location: Bell/Harlan on Feb 23, 2010 at 04:06 AM
    Jim, I've decided that SNOW is the new 4 letter curse word. I like snow but this winter has been a little ridiculous. The teaser we had this past weekend made me want sunshine, shorts and flip flops! I'm ready for spring!!!
