Watching the winter threat for early February

Good Thursday, everyone. We’re about the close the books on a brutally cold January across the bluegrass state. As we head into February, things continue to look super active and that means a very wintry pattern.

The first system I’m tracking arrives over the weekend and will bring a rain or snow shower for Friday with rain on Saturday. Your Super Bowl Sunday will find colder temps moving in with the possibility of some light snow or a light mix. That may continue into Monday, but doesn’t look like a huge deal right now.

What’s getting all the attention is the storm for the middle of next week. This has been on my radar for a while and it continues to show up well on the models. Unfortunately, the models will show different solutions from one run to the next and that’s to be expected.

The European Model shows this storm taking a track across the eastern Ohio Valley by Wednesday…

Snow, ice and rain will all be possible across Kentucky. We are a week away from that happening, so it’s impossible to tell you which on will be the main precipitation type. There is likely to be a lot of whatever falls and this should be a big ticket weather item for a lot of the country.


The European Model then follows that up with another storm system by next weekend…

While specifics will have to be ironed out in the coming days… you get the idea of what I am talking about. The pattern is ripe for a lot of winter weather in February.

Have a great day and take care.
