Chris Bailey's Forecast | Tracking a weekend winter storm

By  | 

Cold winds are blowing across the state, leading to a few flurries and snow showers for parts of the region. From here, it’s all eyes on a developing winter storm taking aim at Kentucky this weekend.

Wind chills tonight drop to around 10 degrees, so bundle up.

My overall thoughts for the weekend winter storm haven’t really changed much at all.

The timeline on this winter storm is Friday night through Sunday night. The track of the low is pretty much west to east across the southern states, then it tries to turn the corner up the coast.

This low will have an inverted trough into the lower Ohio Valley. That funnels moisture into the cold air, producing accumulating snow for many.

The first wave of snow moves across the state Friday night into early Saturday. That will put down accumulating snow statewide.

The southern half of the state will see this switch to a rain/snow mix or plain rain for a time on Saturday and Saturday night. All of this should go back over to snow and light snow on Sunday.

For areas getting in on all snow for the duration of the event, several inches of snow will be likely.
