Winter set to return

Good Wednesday, everyone. Lexington is the new Seattle. We have had rain or snowfall on 28 of the past 33 days, and we are likely to add to that in the coming days. This happens as Old Man Winter settles back into the Bluegrass State.

A cold front moves into the region Wednesday, with gusty winds and an increase in showers:

Much colder air then moves in for Thursday and sets the stage for rounds of snow showers and flurries through the weekend:

GFSAnother system then swings in for Sunday and could be a little bigger deal. Several models are showing this potential:

The GFS snowfall map from Thursday through Monday:

GFS Snow 5

Once again, that’s a cumulative map over a four-day period and doesn’t indicate actual snow depth. You probably won’t see those totals on the ground at one time. A little here, … A little there. … You get the idea.

With additional cold shots showing up over the next few weeks. We continue to watch the GFS ensembles to see the areas being targeted for winter weather. That’s why I post the ensembles snow runs … just to see which areas they think have the most likely chance of snow. The latest run continues to point toward our region:

Have a great Wednesday and take care.
