Monday Evening Thoughts

Good Monday evening everyone and thanks for dropping in. Rain is on the way to the bluegrass state later tonight with the threat of snow looming for Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Tuesday may end up being a big day for Lexington. We have the chance to break the record for the wettest year on record and to pick up our first light snow accumulation of the season.

Rain will develop overnight and will continue into early Tuesday before mixing with and changing to snow as cold air quickly dives in. Light accumulating snows are a good bet for much of the state in the afternoon and evening. There is likely to be a band of moderate to heavy snow working eastward behind the low. This is the ‘deformation zone’ area I talked about over the weekend and this is something for us to watch. Areas getting under this can pick up a quick inch or two of slushy snow.

Northwesterly winds will set in Tuesday night and early Wednesday with snow showers and flurries bringing another chance for a light accumulation across the eastern half of the state.This may even get a little push from Lake Michigan and you can actually see that on the last panel of the NAM…

Let’s track the rain in from the southwest…

Have a great evening and take care.
