No relief in sight as the parade of snow chances continue

A train of disturbances will bring several rounds of light snow to eastern Kentucky this week as the harsh winter rolls on.

Tired of the snow this winter? Unfortunately I wish I had better news, but the weather pattern of light snowfall after light snowfall will continue into the coming week.

After a coating to 1.5" of snowfall Saturday morning, the next chance will arrive as soon as Sunday morning.  I think our FutureCast has the snow showers represented well Sunday morning.

Temperatures will rise into the upper 30s to near 40°F by Sunday afternoon. This will be enough to change the snow showers to a mix of rain and snow. Little to no snow accumulation is expected until Sunday night into Monday morning.

As temperatures dip into the upper 20s to near 30°F Monday morning, any rain will change to snow. A coating to 1.5" is expected through eastern Kentucky. This is enough to create some slick spots for the Monday morning commute, especially on untreated roadways.

The next round of snow quickly follows with a storm system developing to our south on Tuesday. The system looks to be far enough to the south to only bring light snow showers to our counties bordering Tennessee with dry air firmly in place elsewhere. If the storm system moves farther north, more snow will push in from the southwest. I'll be watching it closely over the coming days to see if this trend shows up in our computer models.

More opportunities for light snowfall will stick around for the rest of the work week, but they are too far away to pinpoint the details. As we get closer we will fine tune the forecast and have updates on-air, on social media, and right here at
