Snow falls on the anniversary of the tornado outbreak

Good Saturday to one and all. March 2nd is a day that will forever be linked with Kentucky weather infamy. A devastating outbreak of tornadoes swept across the state one year ago. The weather scene today is a much different one as we track snow across the commonwealth.

18 tornadoes ripped paths across Kentucky on this date in 2012, killing 24 people. This map shows the tornado tracks and the numerous tornado warnings issued that day:

Things are vastly different one year later. Snow is flying across the bluegrass state today as temps run some 40 degrees colder than then. Light accumulations will continue to be possible into the afternoon as temps run in the low 30s for highs.

Sunday will feature more cold air as the sun returns. Temps may drop into the teens during the morning and recover to around 30 for the high. Normal high temps are in the low 50s.

Another storm system will dive in from the northwest by Tuesday. This is likely to become a snow producer for parts of the bluegrass state.


That is something to keep a close eye on over the next few days. Have a wonderful Saturday and take care.
