Snow swipes Kentucky Wednesday night

Good Wednesday, everyone. Another snow maker is likely to swipe the Bluegrass State later Wednesday night and early Thursday. This continues to be part of a wild month of winter weather in Kentucky.

We will probably see a sharp cutoff on the northern extent of the snow working in Wednesday night. The most likely chance at accumulation will be across southern and eastern parts of the state. Here’s a first-call map:

I’ve made comparisons to the recent stretch of nasty weather with a similar period we had in 1994. The numbers prove just how similar these periods are:

Have a great day and take care.
