Tracking the active weekend

Good Saturday, everyone. It’s a pretty ugly looking weekend across Kentucky as two more systems impact our weather. The one rolling through here today is bringing rain and a touch of snow with it, but the one coming later Sunday has more of a winter weather threat with it.

Let’s start with today and roll forward. Rain is out there and it could mix with a touch of snow. The action winds down later today, but  a few rain and snow showers will be possible late day into the evening.

Here are your tracking tools for the day:

As this system wraps up to our east early Saturday, a few snowflakes may mix in across the north. Things improve a bit by the afternoon, but I can’t rule out a rain or snow shower later in the evening.

The Sunday-Monday system continues to trend flatter on the GFS, bringing it more in line with what the European Model has been showing from day one.

This would bring snow, a wintry mix and rain from west to east across the state Sunday afternoon into Sunday night. As the low tracks on top of Kentucky and into West Virginia on Monday, rain should be the primary player, but we need to watch for a farther south track of the low. As is, we may have a 30 degree temp difference from north to south across the state. As that low goes by, more flakes should fly late Monday night into Tuesday morning.

Here’s the Euro:

The Euro snow map continues to target the northern half of the state:

The late afternoon run of the GFS is finally buying into what the GFS has been selling for a while:

The snowfall on the GFS continues to edge farther south into northern Kentucky:

There’s a second front that dives in here Tuesday night and delivers a few flurries or snow snow showers. This unleashes some very cold air for Wednesday. Look at the numbers:

Have a great day and take care.
