Rain,snow and high winds are increasing across central and eastern Kentucky as Sandy begins to have a major impact on our weather. As precipitation increases… temps will start to fall late this evening and snow will mix in with the rain n in the east. Heavier precipitation will then move in overnight and that will pull down even colder air with more in the way of snow occurring.
The afternoon runs of the NAM and GFS are trending colder quicker and that ups the chance for snow in the east.
The prime time for accumulating snow will be from midnight to 10am with the greatest concentration across the east and southeast. Again… we are dealing with a warm ground so a lot of snow will be melting. Still, it will snow faster than it can melt at times with elevated surfaces faring the best. I’m not expecting a big impact on roads, except for the higher elevations.
A mix of rain and wet snow will be likely across central Kentucky early on Tuesday.
Winds will be a major player over the next few days with gusts of 40mph to 50mph possible.
