Several severe thunderstorm warnings are out for southern and eastern Kentucky. These storms are big time lightning and rain makers. Localized wind damage is possible.
The first of several systems will be moving in tonight. These systems will be quick hitting. That means each will be in and out of the area rather quickly. Each one a little stronger and each one a little colder.
The Tuesday-Wednesday system will bring snow & cold. That snow has prompted a Winter Weather Advisory in Southeastern Kentucky. Some key issues with that round of wintry weather will be the whipping winds and heavy bands of snow. Personally, I think those areas will see less than an inch with some beefier totals in the high spots.
Another round for Thursday night and Friday has more potential to bring accumulating snow to the area. That one will again tap into the cold air and spread it into Kentucky.
If those rounds weren't enough, another round will swing through on Saturday. This one could deliver another shot of accumulating snow. This pattern is running wide open and doesn't show any signs of stopping in the coming week. Hold on tight for the ride!
