Snow on the way for Valentine’s Day

Good Saturday to one and all. Bitterly cold temperatures are back in the bluegrass state to start the weekend. It’s what wraps up the weekend that’s getting most of the weather attention. Snow is on the way for Valentine’s Day.

Highs today will generally range from the upper teens to low 20s. Gusty winds will make it feel much, much colder. Wind chill readings will generally be in the single digits.

A developing storm system throws snow our way Sunday afternoon and evening. Here’s how the NAM sees it:

NAM 3That has the potential to put down a few to several inches of snow through Sunday night. The snowfall map from the NAM:

The storm that follows this for Monday into early Tuesday is still a bit of a mystery. This system is likely to impact central and eastern Kentucky with another round of snow or a wintry mix. The NAM shows this into Monday night:

NAM 4I’m still not sure how that will play out, but the potential for some additional accumulation is certainly there.

My confidence level for a few to several inches of snow for late Sunday into Sunday night is much higher than my thoughts for Monday.

I will have another update later today. Until then, track away:

Enjoy the day and take care.
