Winter Storm Watch posted for Sunday afternoon

Just as I mentioned in an earlier post... the nice weather of Saturday will not last. This run in the 60s will come to an end very soon. Winter isn't quite finished with our area yet.

A front will drop in tonight and into Sunday morning. This brings rain through the overnight hours. Rain will hang around through the day. We'll catch a break during the afternoon hours. Just like our run in the 60s... it will be short-lived. Initially, the front won't bring any wintry precipitation. It just brings the colder air. A wave of low pressure will develop along the boundary and that will bring our next shot of rain, snow, and even some ice.

That's the reason the Winter Storm Watch has been issued. We could see several inches of snow. Our First Cal is for roughly 2"-6" between Sunday night and Monday morning. This isn't the same powdery snow that we have seen recently. Due to the temps and the setup in the atmosphere, we could see the heavy wet snow. That heightens the threat of power outages.

We'll have much more on this right here on wkyt.com and on WKYT. We will be calling a First Alert Severe Weather Day beginning Sunday evening to keep you updated each hour.
