Good Thursday and welcome to another day of arctic cold. Thursday is all about the frigid air, but tomorrow’s headline will be written by snow and ice. A developing winter storm will bring a mess to much of the state.
Highs today will top out in the low and mid 20s for most of Central and Eastern Kentucky. Skies will be partly sunny with increasing late-day clouds.
Those clouds will thicken overnight as low pressure develops to our southwest. That low will work eastward across the Tennessee Valley into Friday. This will throw a round of snow and mix across Kentucky. It will work in from southwest to northeast late Thursday night.
Here’s what I’m expecting:
The totals could be a little more or a little less, depending on how much moisture works across the state.
Southern sections of the state have a real shot at seeing an icy mix out of this, and that might create some rough conditions for a time.
This will be a fast-moving system that will scoot through here pretty quickly. Another arctic front blows through town Friday night, and that will bring snow showers and squalls into Saturday morning.
I will update the snow map coming up later today, so check back. Enjoy the day and take care.
