Some Rest Before A Mess

Snow ended in most areas on Thursday afternoon. Flurries stuck around for a little while longer.

The preferred track for most energy over the next few days will be north of the commonwealth. A disturbance or two will swing through Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio this weekend.  Most data keeps the wintry stuff north until Sunday. Notice I said MOST! Some data keeps trying to spread the snow down into eastern KY on Saturday. I'll go with what I feel and that is that Saturday would be snow free for most areas. Northern KY has the best chance to see snow.

Canadian Sat Night                               NAM Sat Night                           EURO Sat Night

These three keep moisture out of the region that night.

GFS Sat Night

The GFS has dipped the precip a couple of times this week into KY on Saturday night. Some of the others have backed off on moisture for Sunday, but the GFS has taken the moisture right back into KY.  I still say the northern parts of KY stand the best chance of seeing the activity.

The real mess won't start until next week. It looks pretty wet with both rain and snow coming into the equation. The way it looks at this point...

  • Sunday snow showers develop.
  • Monday snow changes to rain
  • Tuesday rain changes back over to snow

This is my first clean call on the system. We'll examine it more closely on Friday.

C-Ya Bye

    I really don't mind the snow. I like having the kids home. I would rather drive them to school in the summer when it is warm than in the cold of winter. My kids, however, do not agree!

    thank you for keeping us posted. I enjoy the snow but when the roads are bad it makes it almost impossible to travel.

    Well, from the data I have been looking at, we could see some moderate snowfall on Tuesday (Wet Snow). Personally, I love snow, but I am tired of all of these teases! I would like to see one big snow (like we had back in the 90s) and get it over with!
