Halloween snow update

Good Thursday afternoon, gang. I continue to track the increasing potential for Halloween snowflakes across the entire region.

The latest run of the NAM really supports the idea of wraparound snows late Friday night and Saturday morning.

Watch how the band builds in from northwest to southeast:

NAM 2That is probably overdone in Central Kentucky because of the mild ground and melting. I also think it’s a little undercooked across southeastern parts of the state.

I’m probably closer to the GFS snowfall forecast:

A few thoughts:

– Highs still look to surge toward 50 before crashing down from west to east Friday afternoon. Gusty showers will be around, and a rumble of thunder is even possible.

– Trick-or-treat hours will find temps dropping through the 30s, with gusty winds and some rain and snow filling the air.

– A wraparound band of snow moves in Friday night and Saturday morning across Central and Eastern Kentucky. Tha one could drop some light accumulations on grassy areas and elevated surfaces.

Take care.
