Winter returns this week

By  | 

Gusty winds continue to blow winter back into the bluegrass state. Those winds will slow down a bit tonight as slightly colder air moves in.

Colder air will then bleed into the state into Tuesday. This air is marginally cold enough to produce snow as the next storm takes aim at the region on Wednesday. The models are beginning to come into better agreement with a farther northward tracking low toward the Carolinas.

The models are still trying to figure out the track of the low and are struggling with the thermal profiles. Regardless, temps are going to be touch and go with this system, but I do suspect we will see a swath of wet snow setting up. We will have to figure out exactly where that is as we get closer. The track alone is one that usually produces snow around here.

Arctic air will then plunge southward into our region on Friday and that will set us up for a wicked weekend of winter weather. There is a good possibility of a wave of low pressure developing along this arctic front and then bombing out just to our east or northeast.
