Winter comes back next week

Good Saturday, everyone. Rain is rolling across the bluegrass state as our weather pattern continues to transition back toward winter. That transition may really kick into high gear in the week ahead.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward.

Rain will increase from west to east and carry us through early Sunday. Rain totals may exceed a half inch in many areas:

The rain will shut off on Sunday, leaving us with some nice weather into the afternoon hours.

Another front then dives in early Monday, bringing an increase in snow showers behind it through early Tuesday:

Light accumulations are very possible in many areas, especially across the mountains in the east. That’s a setup that can overachieve in some spots.

The late weekend system continues to have “the look” of a significant Ohio and Tennessee Valleys winter weather event.

An arctic front dives in and slows down, with low pressure developing along it. Depending on the track and strength of the low, a big event would be possible around here.

The GFS continues to pound out a big storm:

The European Model is also going that direction:

As always, we focus on the setup and not the individual runs. The setup continues to advertise a significant winter weather event around our part of the world. Let’s see if the pattern still looks this way in the coming days.

Make it a great Saturday and take care.
