Winter storm brings additional problems

Good Monday to one and all. Sunday’s winter storm dumped quite a bit of snow across our region. Some parts of the Kentucky picked up nearly 8 inchesof snow. Many roads are still in horrible shape as we enter phase two of this winter storm.

Our day starts with snow packed roads and temps slowly on the rise. A wintry mix of snow, rain and freezing drizzle will be possible for many areas. Travel could be a nightmare for many people during this time.

Temps slowly push to freezing or a little above in the afternoon. This happens as low pressure develops across the Tennessee Valley and works toward the Appalachian Mountains. Rain breaks out across Central and Eastern Kentucky, but it is going to try and go back to snow.

Watch how the western edge switches to snow late in the afternoon and evening:

That’s from the Hi-Res NAM and would indicate a band of moderate to heavy snow trying to develop across the region. Where that develops and how strong it is are to be determined.

That run of the NAM shows this just to the east of Lexington:

The snowfall map from the European Model suggests that band develops a little farther west:

The other problem to watch out for is flooding. There is a lot of moisture streaming into the region Monday. For areas that stay mostly rain, it could really add up. Look at the precipitation forecast through Tuesday morning:
