Eastern Kentucky Weather

Sun & Snow

The snowy conditions started showing up in some areas on Friday afternoon... while others folks still had the sunshine. I think it will end up being more snow and less sun soon!

Just like most of the winter... the break will be over soon and more snow will start flying around. Nothing out of the ordinary... right?

As I posted earlier, the Winter Weather Advisory was issued for several areas through 9am.

Excellent call by the NWS on the advisory! These areas look like the will be hit the hardest with the snow. The closer you get to the Kentucky-West Virginia state line the higher the totals. What about higher elevations you might be asking?!?!?! Maybe so... the catch will be the sharp cut-off. So the flow may not effect people along the VA border like normal.

The targeted areas include:

  • Inez
  • Louisa
  • Paintsville
  • West Liberty
  • Prestonsburg
  • Pikeville

Those areas will have to deal with a steadier flow of snow.

These areas will not:

  • Somerset
  • London
  • Corbin
  • Barbourville
  • Pineville
  • Middlesboro
  • Manchester

Just to name a few places.

Keep up with the snow low right here!

Next week's system has been coming around over the last few runs. For our project we are not interested in the last few runs... just the way it looks early Tuesday... based on the 18z run nearly each day this week. Over the weekend I will go more in depth with it since it has been coming around in the daily runs. Check back this weekend!

 

18z Tuesday for March 2nd

18z run Wednesday for March 2nd

18z run Thursday for March 2nd

18z run for March 2nd

The same daily run keeps changing. This one shows the snow beginning much earlier! LOL... we'll see!

If the folks over at the NWS Jackson are reading this... (I'm not sure why they would...LOL... they are all very capable of putting a forecast together without reading about my shenanigans) I want to say thanks to Shawn & Jim for coming over and taping the Issues & Answers program for Monday. We talked about the winter weather and severe weather. March 1st is the beginning of the Severe Weather Awareness Month. Yeah... I know... hard to believe!

C-Ya Bye
