Wintry Weekend Watch

Several chances of snow and other forms of wintry precipitation are in the forecast. Tonight we take a closer look at the potential for another messy stretch of weather.

Good Friday to you one and all.  We're wrapping up another week of witnry weather across southern and eastern Kentucky, and if you're sick of it... well unfortunately I don't have much good news.  Mother nature continues to have the deck stacked against us a few wintry systems look to pass by our region as we head into the next several days.

The first one comes at us this weekend as an upper level disturbances passes by to our north.  This will likely sling a few snow showers our way as we head into the weekend.  The best chances appear to be Saturday Morning and again late Sunday into Monday.  Here's a look at the GFS Model:

Saturday AM:

Sunday Late:



Each one of these bouts of snow may produce light accumulation (less than 2 inches), but as we found out the other night, that's more than enough to cause very slick road ways.  The good news is that Saturday afternoon we should warm into the upper 30s and maybe 40s if we can see some breaks in the clouds. so that should help our hard working road crews in cleaning up the mess after Saturday morning.

 

We then turn our attention to next week as a storm system passes by to the south.  Southern storms are always tricky this time of year and this one looks to be no different.  We still have some time to nail down the details, but it looks like at this point the potential of a potent storm passing near our region is look pretty good.   Here's the latest from the GFS Model.

Tuesday:

Wednesday:


Taken verbatim the bulk of the storm would miss us to our south.  However the GFS has a real bad tendancy to push storms to far south this far out, and they usually end up tracking farther to the north.  If that trend holds true that would put us at threat for wintry weather Tuesday and Wednesday.  It is something we will watch closely.  Until next time, take care!
