Good Thursday, everyone. Our big storm system is arriving in the bluegrass state, bringing rounds of heavy rain to the region. This will continue through Friday as a touch of snow gets into the mix later in the day.
Here are a few thoughts on the rain part of the storm:
- Rounds of heavy rain impact central and eastern Kentucky Thursday into Friday. A general 1″-3″ may fall.
- Local high water issues are very possible, especially in the southeastern parts of the state.
Here are your radars to track today’s rains:
Here are the headlines for the potential for a switch to some winter weather later Friday:
- Temps drop quickly as the low goes by to our northeast. That allows for a switch to a mix of rain and snow and a period of wet snow.
- Some light accumulations are possible across central and eastern parts of the state. That’s still not a given because any snow that falls has to fight a wet ground. But, some slushy, light accumulations are POSSIBLE in some areas.
Here’s a quick look at how the models see that potential:
Hi Res NAM
The Sunday into Sunday night system continues to look fairly week, but could deliver a little bit of light rain and light snow for some. The models are still trying to figure this out. Here’s the GFS:
The European is a little weaker:
The European Model is just a tad farther north with the Christmas Eve and Day system:
Have a great Thursday and take care.
