Good Saturday everyone. The latest winter storm to strike the bluegrass state will quickly work to our east this morning. Snowfall totals range from 1″-5″ across many of the areas we had been highlighting for snow. Many parts of Lexington picked up 3″-4″ of the white stuff. This was one of the wettest snows I’ve seen in a long while. It will quickly compact out there today.
We aren’t done with the flakes yet and those that missed out on the storm will get in on the action later today. A stout little disturbance will work southeastward into the state this afternoon and evening. Winds will pick up and temps will take a dive as snow showers and squalls become widespread across central and eastern Kentucky.
Accumulations will be a good bet with a lot of one inch or less snow across central Kentucky. Locally higher amounts will be possible across eastern and southeastern parts of the state. It could get pretty nasty again during the late afternoon and early evening hours.
Here’s regional radar to find the flakes…
Temps tonight will drop into the teens as skies slowly clear out. Highs will only hit the upper 20s and low 30s for Sunday as we await the next system to impact the state.
That moves in for New Year’s Eve and Day and should bring a swath of accumulating snows back into the bluegrass state. There could also be a zone of ice and a mix and that’s something for us to keep watch on.
Happy Saturday and take care.
