Heavy rain and some wet snow

Good Friday, folks. We are kicking off the long Christmas holiday weekend with rounds of heavy rain rolling across Kentucky. This rain may actually end as a bit of snow later today, with a couple more systems on the way between now and Christmas Day.

Today’s rain is adding up and may cause local high water issues into parts of central and eastern Kentucky. That’s especially true across the southeast, where it doesn’t take as much rain to cause problems.

Much colder air will swing in here during the afternoon and evening. That will cause the back edge of the rain to mix with wet snow and it may go over to a period of wet snow this evening. Light, slushy accumulations will be possible, especially in the east.

Here are your radars to track the action:

Slick spots may develop on area roads overnight as temps drop into the 20s. Morning flurries will move away on Saturday with a partly sunny sky settling in as highs reach the upper 30s.

The next system refuses to show up on the GFS or NAM, but every other model has it for Sunday and Sunday night. This is a quick-hitting band of light rain and light snow…

New version of the GFS:


European Model

The European Model continues to throw another system our way later on Christmas day:

Make it a great Friday and take care.
