Happy Friday, folks. Old Man Winter refuses to cut us any slack and is now threatening to throw more snow our way later this weekend. That will be associated with a big winter storm taking aim at the Ohio Valley Sunday and Monday. Guess what comes in behind that? If you said more cold and snow showers, you are a winner!
Temperatures will start the day in the upper teens and low 20s and will rise into the upper 30s and low 40s. Clouds will slowly increase, with light rain and a mix across far Western Kentucky.
That moisture will work across the southern half of the state later tonight and early Saturday. This will bring a swath of light rain and light snow to some areas, and we could even see a minor accumulation in southeastern Kentucky.
The rest of the area will see a mix of sun and clouds and the possibility of a shower or two. Highs will be in the 40s.
The main part of the storm will work in Saturday night and Sunday. Low pressure will track into Kentucky and will bring a lot of moisture with it. Heavy snow will be just to the north and west of the track of this low. Here’s the current risk map for where that band sets up:
The highest risk looks to be along and north of the Ohio River. Areas to the south into Central and Eastern Kentucky have a lower risk for the heaviest swath of snow setting up around here. That could change, as we have two days to play with.
Wraparound snows will carry us into Sunday night and Monday, and that could put down some accumulation. Additional snow showers and low temps will be noted into the middle of next week.
I will have another update later today. Make it a great Friday and take care.
