Tracking a possible light snow-maker

Good Thursday, everyone. Our string of awesome weather days is about to come to a crashing end. Old Man Winter is ready to fight back into the Bluegrass State later Friday into Saturday and could put down a light snowfall.

A potent storm system is rolling across Texas and will work into the deep south on Friday. That storm will then work toward the Outer Banks of North Carolina and then up the East Coast on Saturday.

A track like that can deliver some accumulating snows to our region. Here’s a breakdown:

– Light rain and a mix will increase from southwest to northeast Friday afternoon and evening.

– As the precipitation falls, temps will do the same. That means a switch to a period of light snow later Friday evening into Saturday morning.

– This doesn’t look like a big snowfall right now, but some sticking snow appears to be a good bet. Here’s a look at the areas with the best chance of seeing that:

Special– That is subject to change depending on how the low tracks. A farther west track would give us a better chance for sticking snow. The opposite would be true if the low goes farther to the east.

Between now and then, the weather out there today looks pretty good. Highs will hit the 40-45 degree range with a mix of sun and clouds. There is also the smallest chance of a sprinkle or snow flurry.

I will update as needed later Friday. Make it a good one and take care.
