Good Tuesday to one and all. We continue to track a potent storm system toward the Bluegrass State. This system will bring some wild weather to the entire region over the next couple of days. The best advice I can give: Buckle up!
Here’s a breakdown of what to expect:
- Heavy rain and thunderstorms increase from southwest to northeast Tuesday night and early Wednesday.
- Some areas could pick up 1 to 3 inches of rain during that time. High-water problems are possible.
- Highs could hit 60 in Central and Eastern Kentucky ahead of the low on Wednesday.
- Much colder air wraps in quickly from the west Wednesday afternoon and evening. That will lead to rain changing to snow.
- Wraparound snows will be likely Wednesday night and Thursday. A few inches of snow look possible.
- High winds will be a big player through Thursday. Gusts of 40 to 50 mph could cause problems.
The latest NAM shows the progression of that storm:
That’s a big wind-maker from Tuesday night through Thursday.
Rainfall totals could be hefty from Tuesday night through Wednesday evening:
Local high-water problems are possible.
A switch to snow takes place Wednesday evening, with plenty of wraparound moisture:
That’s from the European model and suggests that accumulating snows are likely. The GFS agrees:
I leave you with your Tuesday trackers to get you ready for the storm:
Enjoy the day and take care.
