Tracking a light snow system

Good Tuesday, everyone. We have a quick-hitting light snow maker zipping across the region early in the day. This can drop some light accumulations as thermometers drop all day long.

The radar to our northwest won’t look very impressive, with the light snow and snow showers developing on top of us in the morning. Northwesterly winds will then kick in, helping fuel some additional snow showers across Eastern Kentucky.

This is not a lot of snow and might only cover the ground in some areas. But these smaller systems can sometimes have a big impact on traffic. We saw that this past weekend, so just be careful.

The most likely chances of accumulating snow are across the east and southeast:

Temps drop through the 20s Tuesday, with wind chills deep into the teens. Bundle up!

Another system then shows up Wednesday night, but the track on that is all over the place. It might try to bring a band of light snow across the northern half of the state.

The more interesting system comes Thursday night and Friday. Another northern branch system digs in across the lower Ohio Valley, spawning another low to our southeast. That system then tries to ride the East Coast. That scenario would bring more light snow across our entire region.

Here’s the GFS:

Will we see that East Coast system trend farther west in the coming days? We shall see, but it’s an interesting look.

Let’s get back to Tuesday’s light system. I have you guys all set to track the light stuff:
