Good Wednesday, folks. We have arctic air pouring into the region, and this will set the stage for some snow over the next few days. As a matter of fact, this looks to be our first widespread snowfall of the season.
Here’s a breakdown of what to expet:
- Our day starts with a passing flurry on a strong northwesterly wind. Temps will settle into the upper 20s to low 30s and hold there all day.
- Light to moderate snow then develops from west to east early Thursday. This won’t be a ton of snow, but it will be enough to cause slick roads.
- Here’s my current thinking on total snowfall from Thursday and early Friday:
- This should be enough snow to cause some cancellations and delays at some point Thursday and/or Friday.
- Highs by Friday might not get much above the 20-degree mark, with gusty winds making it feel like the teens all day long.
There’s another system developing across the south that might brush southeastern Kentucky with some snow Friday night and Saturday. The European model shows this well:
It wouldn’t take much adjustment to get that storm to trend farther north and west, so we will have to keep a close eye on that potential.
Regardless, this weekend turns absolutely frigid. The Canadian model is probably too cold, but I do expect lows to hit the single digits:
I will have another update later in the day. Make it a good Wednesday and take care.
