Good Monday, folks. Our super active weather pattern continues across the region, with the increasing threat for another big system this coming weekend. Between now and then, temps take a little ride with a smaller system zipping in.
Let’s start with our Monday and roll forward.
The day is starting with a touch of light snow and freezing drizzle. This may cause slick spots on area roads as temps are in the 20s. Leftover flurries hang around this afternoon with temps around freezing.
Here’s regional radar:
Seasonally cold temps are with us over the next few days, then a quick hitting system zips across the state by Thursday. That looks like a mainly rain maker, but it may be close:
Our weekend storm system continues to look like a monster system, capable of producing all modes of precipitation across the bluegrass state. The European Model continues to look like February 2003 storm that hammered Kentucky:
Here’s hoping the European is wrong on all fronts because it’s cranking out a ton of precipitation.
That’s a lot of arctic air coming in with this storm system. For areas having snow and ice on the ground, the numbers may tank. The European temps:
The GFS is more progressive with this system and spits out less precipitation:
That would be basically rain to snow with bitter cold coming in. The GFS suggests temps go from the 50s to near zero in roughly 24 hours:
Another system tries to follow that up a few days later:
Rounds of arctic air keep diving into the country as our southern stream remains active:
Have a great Monday and take care.
