Tracking winter weather

Good Tuesday, everyone. Old Man Winter continues to throw some nasty stuff our way, as we bookend the day with winter weather. The main system arrives later tonight into Wednesday, and should bring a messy mix our way.

The day starts with light snow and flurries zipping through here. This can put down some minor accumulations, leading to slick spots on area roads.

Skies try to brighten behind this system, but clouds quickly increase this afternoon ahead of our next storm. This is a stronger system, with a lot more moisture to work with. Heavy rain, freezing rain and some snow all will be showing up across Kentucky.

The Hi Res NAM has beefed up the overall coverage of the Freezing rain:

The GFS continues to sink southward with the band of freezing rain, and has half inch and greater amounts:

That same model also shows a better chance for accumulating snows in the north:

That can get very messy for parts of the state. In addition to the winter weather, rainfall totals of 1″-2″ are possible in the south and southeast.

As usual, I have the blog set up to be your one stop shop for tracking all the action:
