All eyes on the weekend

Good Wednesday, everyone. Our severe storms are now in the rear-view mirror and it’s time to focus on the pattern ahead. Old Man Winter is ready to move back into the region, with snow chances showing back up.

Temps today are a far cry from where we were yesterday. Temps this morning are in the 30s with afternoon highs in the 40s. A few flurries are even possible early this morning:

From here, let’s start to focus more on a developing storm system moving in late Friday into early Saturday. This has the potential to bring heavy rain and heavy snow our way. Here’s the GFS:

As you can see, that’s a lower Ohio Valley winter storm. The snow forecast from the model:

That’s only a model run, folks, but the models have been showing the potential for accumulating snows for several days now.

The NAM only goes through Friday night, but is also on board:

Here’s the snow map from just that time period:

Both the NAM and GFS are suggesting the potential for historic April snows setting up somewhere across the bluegrass state. The Canadian also has a healthy hit:

None of that means you will get a big snow event where you live, but the fact we are talking about it is pretty astounding. It is April, ya know. 🙂

Have a good one and take care.
