Good afternoon, gang. I promised you a first call map and I am a weatherman of my word… mostly. Here’s what I’m currently thinking:
The prime time for wintry weather is from late Sunday afternoon through Monday morning. Snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain will all be likely during this time.
Good Saturday, everyone. We have a gorgeous day in progress across central and eastern Kentucky. My simple advice to you is to go out and soak it up. A developing winter storm is likely to bring rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow our way Sunday into Sunday night.
Let’s start with the good that is today’s weather. Highs will top out in the upper 50s to around 60 degrees under mostly sunny skies.
That bad part of the forecast takes over quickly on Sunday. Cold air gets pulled in from the north as low pressure develops to our south. That low looks to work across the Tennessee Valley into North Carolina.
Moisture from this storm will collide with the cold air over Kentucky. That means a wintry mix of precipitation becomes likely. Check out how the RPM Model handles all the details of this:
The timing and position of the rain verses mix and snow will likely change with the model runs that come out today. That’s when I will put out the first call map.
Sunday into Monday look rather messy across the commonwealth.
Enjoy the nice weather of today and take care.
