Tracking new snow threats

Good Saturday everyone. Our Christmas weekend is off and running on a very cold note across Kentucky. Many folks are don’t really mind the cold this time of year and would like some more snow to go along with it. If that describes you, then you will like the the snow threats I’m tracking in the coming days.

Let’s start with the weather out there today as a lot of people will be hitting the roads. We have mainly sunny skies and good travel conditions with highs in the 30s.

The action begins to pick up on Sunday as a weak area of low pressure pushes across the state. Scattered showers will increase during the afternoon. The air in the north may be cold enough for a bit of a mix.

Chilly showers continue into Monday and there’s a good chance the rain changes to a period of light snow and flurries by Christmas Eve. You can see that on the GFS:


A flake or two will be possible into Christmas Morning with temps in the mid and upper 20s. Highs will only reach the middle 30s.

That brings us to the next system and this is the one I’ve been talking about for the past several days. This winter storm has a real chance to bring a significant round of snow to much of the state Christmas night into Wednesday. The track on the GFS is a good one for snow lovers:


That is backed up by the latest run from the European Model:


This storm passes the “look” test, but is still a few days away. A lot can change with the forecast track and that will directly impact the weather where you live.

Keep checking back and I will have updates as needed through the weekend. Have a great Saturday and take care.
