Messy weather for the weekend

Good Friday, everyone. It’s a messy looking setup as we roll our way into the weekend. We have three different systems moving in here and each of them will bring rain and some winter weather.

The first system is working through here today and could bring a touch of freezing rain into areas of eastern Kentucky this morning. This will especially the case in those colder valleys and that’s something to watch for. That should change to plain rain quickly as the morning wears on. Here are your trackers for the day:

As this low wraps up to our east, it will bring colder air in behind it later tonight and early Saturday. That may result in a period of rain and some snow. Later Saturday we will find another disturbance that can kick off a few rain and snow showers.

Our next system then rolls our way by Sunday afternoon and evening. This pushes a swath of precipitation from west to east. Farther south, this is mainly rain. Along and north of the Interstate 64 corridor, snow and a wintry mix pushes through.

Here’s how the hi res NAM sees all this…

The European Model continues to have the greatest concentration of snow and winter weather late Sunday before rain takes over as low pressure works across Kentucky on Monday…

That’s fromĀ  the 6z run of the Euro and only goes through Monday evening.

The NAM goes through the same time period but shows a switch back to snow by Monday evening…

The GFS is similar in taking the low across Kentucky with a swath of snow and winter weather across the north on Sunday, then a lot of rain, then cold and a few snow showers…

That run of the GFS cranks out a ton of rain…

Have a good one and take care.
