Eastern Kentucky Weather

Remember to Save Your Work... Oh Yeah... More Snow

The snow has returned to the weather picture around here. Not that it is a big suprise!

The title says it all! I was nearly finished with the post when all of a sudden *POOF* I was redirected to another page and all of my previous post was lost! How does that make me feel you may be wondering... or you may not care... LOL... It makes me happy of course! Why wouldn't I want to rewrite everything again. I can tell you that I won't rewrite it completely! Too mad for that. Let's get right to it!

To answer a question many of you had... it starts out as a wet snow and will end as the fine/dry snow with the colder air invading.

During my fun time with the web an updated advisory/warning was issued. The warned counties run through 7pm while the advisories expire at 10am.

Those higher elevations will likely pick up more snow... just like areas closer to the KY- WEST VIRGINIA border. Usually, it's the high elevations that are alone in the higher totals. If the timing pans out for Belfry, South Williamson, Inez, Louisa, and Maybe Paintsville... they could see some impressive totals too!

Here's my forecast for Weds Night-Thursday

That's only for the beginning of this wintry mess.

I have made bit of a first call for the entire week just below. That includes all of the snow for the week and even into parts of the weekend. I might have to adjust this on Thursday! Some of these bursts of snow have been real jaw droppers. So I'll likely tweak the numbers on Thursday... maybe not!

What you see above is always a collaboration of the model data I review, along with a few other things. The individual runs have looked right on with what I have been talking about the last couple of days.

NAM Snowfall through the Weekend

 

GFS through the Weekend

As I have mentioned... the northeast is getting ready for a brute of a storm. Power outages, strong winds, and heavy snow are all likely. Here we'll only see a small fraction of what will happen up there. We will get a small portion of each item here in east KY.

  • Winds 25-35mph with gusts around 40mph
  • Snow rates of 1"-2" per hour
  • Wind chills in the single digits

Now on with our project.
