Winter weather rolls in tonight

Good Friday to one and all. Our winter storm is working toward the region, bringing a round of snow to much of the area tonight and early Saturday. From there, we see a nice battle setting up between rain and snow.

Snow should develop across western Kentucky by late afternoon and will roll toward central Kentucky by late evening or into the wee hours of Saturday morning. This will bring a wet snowfall to much of the area, with the greatest amounts across the northern and western sections:

Here’s my latest call for snowfall through Saturday morning…

Will that be perfect? Nope, but it’s a rough estimate of how this may play out.  Again, those lines may go a bit north or south depending on how the day plays out. I will update that map a little later on.

Here’s a look at the current Winter Weather Alerts:

A quick check on what the models are showing through around noon on Saturday, finds some impressive numbers.

For the rest of the weekend, my thoughts remain pretty much unchanged. The best chance for snow is across the northern parts of the state, with rain across the southern half and a buffer zone in the middle. That’s the zone that could go either way from Saturday afternoon through early Sunday:

A degree or so will make a big difference in where the rain vs. snow line sets up.

I leave you with regional radar to track the snow from the west:

Make it a good one and take care.
