Snow, Spring, and Storms

Chief Meteorologist Shane Smith is tracking a whirlwind of weather pattern. We go from showers, to snow, to spring time warmth, to storms.


Your friendly neighborhood meteorologist was looking forward to a quiet weekend and especially to the 70s next week.  Now I'm going to be reaching for the Advil as it looks like old man winter is trying to throw us a sucker punch.  The computer models are really intensifying the low pressure system we're expecting to cross KY tomorrow.  So not only are we going to see a lot of rain tomorrow, it now looks like this storm system is going to pull down enough cold air to cause some snow.  And not just a little bit, most of  the models are now showing at least some accumulation. 

 

Someone else needs to try to talk some sense into Mother Nature... I've given up at this point.  This is beyond getting old. 

The good news is we've got 70s in the forecast!  And sunshine to go with it!
 

 

 

Check out how high the European model is trying to take temperatures next Friday.  

 

 As nice as the upper 70s look, they can cause some problems this time of year.  We can still get some pretty potent shots of cold air moving into our region this time of year.  If you get strong cold air, colliding with strong warm air, it can create some pretty potent storm systems.  Some of the models are hinting at this towards the end of next week.  Check out the GFS for Friday.

 

 

 

That low pressure has the looks of one that could cause severe weather across the south, including Southern and Eastern Kentucky.  It's something we will keep a close eye on as we head into next week.
