A winter storm may impact our weekend

Good Friday, folks. March is off and running on fairly calm note, but a developing winter storm looks to change that this weekend.  Snow, rain and a mix of precipitation looks to target the region from Saturday night through Sunday night. After that, the temps tank!

Let’s begin with March first and roll forward. Clouds will linger into much of the day as chilly winds continue to blow. Another wave of rain is possible, especially across the southeastern part of the state:

Saturday’s weather looks pretty good with temps in the 40s and a mix of sun and clouds. Those clouds are ahead of a developing winter storm set to impact the region from Saturday night through Sunday night.

Here’s a rough outline of how this may play out:

The overnight trend on the computer models is for our storm to take a farther south track. That would mean a better snow hit for the bluegrass state. Given that, the latest risk map takes everything farther south:

Is that far enough south or will I need to keep going with it?  It will be interesting to see how today’s models play out.

Here’s a look at the latest model mania:

The European Model had been the farthest north of the bunch, but it keeps coming farther south with each run:

Frigid temps will follow this system and there’s the chance for single digit lows early next week.

Have a good one and take care.
