Weekend Winter Storm Threat

Good Friday everyone. It’s all eyes on a developing winter storm that’s set to impact the bluegrass state Saturday night into Sunday. This has the potential to dump several inches of heavy, wet snow. The question is… where?

Here’s a look at my updated threat map for the potential of 4 or more inches of snow:

Here’s a quick breakdown of how things may play out:

– Low pressure develops across Louisiana on Saturday and will then lift northeastward into the Carolinas by Sunday afternoon.

– Clouds will slowly increase around here on Saturday as temps warm into the low 50s for highs. Those readings will then take a dive at night as precipitation breaks out from southwest to northeast. Readings will hit 32 or below by daybreak Sunday.

– Snow will become widespread Sunday, but there will be a sharp northern cutoff to the accumulating snow. I can’t say exactly where this will be at the moment.

– The potential for several inches of heavy, wet snow is certainly there. Areas getting in on more than 5″ of snow may see power and tree issues. Again… the best chance for this is across eastern Kentucky, but much of the region is still in the game.

– None of this is set in stone and changes in the forecast are likely as the track of the storm becomes more apparent.

I will have updates later today, so check back. Have a great Friday and take care.
