Arctic cold moves in

Good Sunday to one and all. We have another big blast of arctic cold temps on the way for the next couple of days. This sets the stage for another cold week ahead, with snow chances increasing.

We have some light snow that will brushing southeastern Kentucky this morning. Elsewhere, some light flakes will be noted.  The arctic front then sweeps in this evening with some snow showers and high winds. Bitterly cold temps follow that for Monday and Tuesday.

The Canadian Model has some ugly temps:


The system following that by Tuesday night and Wednesday is looking formidable on the forecast models. This is looking more and more like the first widespread snowfall of the winter. The European Model shows the snows working in…

EuroThe GFS is more amped up with this system…


The snowfall forecast from that model run…

GFS Snow

The latest trend on the models is to keep that system more in tact all the way through the region. If that trend continues, the better the chance for a decent snowfall.

A storm comes in behind that by Friday and into the weekend. This is likely to be a slow-mover, and if we stay on the cold side, could be a biggie.

The European Ensembles Mean shows the snows from west to east across Kentucky…

Euro 2

That’s an average of 51 members.

The European Ensembles control run has this…

Euro 3

That keeps the storm to our south and east, but its 6 days away. Don’t take any model solution to heart!

I leave you with your Sunday tracking tools:

Make it a great day and take care.
