Some light snow for the weekend

Good Friday to one and all. We have a very active winter setup across the eastern half of the country. It’s producing a major deep south snowstorm and will bring some light snow into Kentucky this weekend.

Our southern snowstorm might put snow down all the way to the Gulf Coast on Friday and Friday night. Some of this could brush the southeastern part of the state by Friday evening. The GFS shows some snow getting into our Virginia border counties:

Here’s regional radar to see just how close those snowflakes get to the region Friday:

Our weekend clipper dives into the Ohio Valley on Saturday, bringing light snow to Central and Eastern Kentucky. Light is the key word here:

That might put down some very light accumulations in the afternoon and evening hours, especially across Eastern Kentucky. Give the very light nature of the snows, I see no reason to even put out a First Call For Snowfall. 🙂

Winds will be very gusty, blowing the flakes around. Wind chills by Saturday evening drop to 10 to 15 degrees:

A few single-digit wind chills then show up as we roll into Sunday morning. Sunday is another very windy and cold day, with wind chills staying in the low and middle 20s.

Beyond this weekend, arctic shots and clippers dive in with snow chances beginning as early as Monday night. You can see the additional cold blast showing up:

Have a great Friday and take care.
