Tracking the snow

Chief Meteorologist Shane Smith has the latest on how much snow we can expect and the impacts on the Wednesday morning commute.

Good Tuesday evening, old man winter is about to let loose on Eastern Kentucky once again.  A Cold front is about to settle across the Ohio Valley and that will bring snow showers and colder temperatures to the Bluegrass State one more time.  You can track the snow as it moves in below:

After the front moves in, cold air will funnel in behind it.  Tomorrow morning air temperatures will be in the teens but factor in the winds and it will feel like single digits.  Add a little snow into the mix and you have a recipe for some closings and delays as roads will likely be slick in places Wednesday AM.

 

We're not expecting a ton of snow in the region, but just enough to cause some problems.  Here's a look at the snow forecast in detail:

After this round of winter weather moves through we will have some cool, but dry days on Thursday and Friday.  Our next storm system looks like it will enter our neighborhood on Saturday and will likely bring a mix of snow and rain.

After that another storm system, one that is certainly looking a little more potent will enter the region on Monday.  This one has a pretty good chance of bringing us a bit of wintry mix.

The details on that one won't be in focus and clear until we get much closer to the beginning of next week.  However I will be watching it for the potential of being a big impact storm.  Some of the models are certainly going much more aggressive than the GFS, but we will wait a little bit to start speculating too much on how it may play out.  

Take it easy on the roads in the morning and be sure to tune into Mountain News This Morning for the latest on closings and road conditions.
