A major winter storm is on the way to the bluegrass state. Local high water issues are possible early Wednesday and that will be followed up by heavy snow and sleet. Significant accumulations are likely Wednesday night and Thursday.
A cold front is working eastward across the state this evening. Showers are widespread and will continue into the late evening hours… especially across the east. Winds are going to be gusty and may approach 40mph at times. Much colder air will blast in behind the front this evening.
Tuesday will see a lingering shower in the east to start as colder air bleeds in. Highs in the low and mid 40s will be common.
Another cold front drops in here Tuesday night and Wednesday morning and will bring even colder air back into the bluegrass state. Highs Wednesday may not get out of the low and 30s. To add insult to injury… the wind chill may dip into the high teens at times as snow showers and flurries kick in. Those flakes will be especially common across central and eastern Kentucky…
That’s a pretty good northwesterly wind flow setting up for a time. Let’s see if it can drop a light accumulation somewhere.
