Tracking the next winter storm

Good afternoon, everyone. Snow continues to fall across much of Central and Eastern Kentucky. Many roads are still snow-covered, but it’s time to focus on the next possible storm Friday.

This storm brings a mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain to the region Thursday night. That action quickly goes over to snow and heavy snow early Friday. Heavy snow will then continue Friday night across Central and Eastern Kentucky, with wraparound snow into early Saturday.

Winds are going to crank Friday and Saturday, with gust of 30 to 40 mph possible. Blowing and drifting snow will be a concern. So, how much snow can we expect? It’s still a little early in the game, but we’re within 48 hours, and that’s usually my window to put out a First Call for Snowfall map.

This is just my first take on totals and placement. I will make adjustments to the lines and numbers as we get closer to the storm. That said, there is no denying the possibility of another monster snow for much of the region:

Special 2

When comparing my numbers to the actual numbers coming from the computer models, I’m being conservative across the eastern half of the state.
