Previous Update

Good Saturday everyone. Another light snow maker is on the way to the bluegrass state and will likely cause some travel issues later today. This is all part of a broader pattern that is loaded with a ton of winter.

Here’s what you need to know about today’s light snow system:

- Winds and clouds increase this morning into the early afternoon. Temps will be in the mid and upper 20s.

- A band of light snow will streak from northwest to southeast later in the afternoon and evening. This band will put down light accumulations of around an inch or so. Locally higher amounts will be noted in the north and east.

- With a frozen ground and road temperatures below freezing, slick travel is a possibility.

- The light snow will taper to flurries into Sunday morning with sunshine returning by the afternoon.

The pattern for next week will see much colder air moving in. Highs by Tuesday may not get out of the teens as temperatures head into the single digits for lows. This pattern should be accompanied by some light snow makers.

Keep a close eye on next weekend into the following week for a better snow threat that could be followed by the return of the Polar Vortex. Check out the low temps coming from the GFS for early in the final week of the month:
