Good evening, everyone. I wanted to drop by for some thoughts on where this pattern goes from here.
– Lows tonight will tank! Below zero readings are likely for much of central and eastern Kentucky. Some of the colder spots could hit -10!
– The snow system coming in late Friday night into Saturday is going to be a HIGH impact system. Snowfall: take the lines on the first call map and adjust them westward. I’m becoming more bullish on a few spots picking up on 4″-6″ of the white stuff before it’s all over. Winds are going to gust to 40mph and this may create blizzard conditions at times. Saturday is a day that can feature brief road closures because of the blowing snow and reduced visibilities.
– The next arctic front arrives Sunday night with some snow and even colder air. Readings early next week are likely to go well below zero for a few days with highs struggling to get much past 0.
I will have a full update tonight. Take care.
