Month: March 2015

Snow Map Changes. #KYWX

My thoughts have changed, higher totals are shifting more towards the south. A 10-14″ snow band may develop across central Kentucky. All in all, wherever you are on this map, you’re getting some significant snow amounts.

Wednesday’s Winter Storm Chance. #KYWX

Posted at 8:40 PM March 2, 2015 by Darius Mack

Good evening gang, tis the season, or is it? It’s less than 20 days till we see the Spring equinox, and also less than a week before Daylight Savings Time. By this time of year we should see sunny skies and highs in the 50s. That’s not the case this winter season, Winter has made its late arrival, and this delayed schedule is going into the start of March. I want to do a quick run down on whats going to happen here in the next 48 hours.

First, a mild system will zoom through the state Tuesday morning, Temps may reach 60 degrees in most spots. It looks to be a soaky event, a Flood Watch is in place for our area through Wednesday afternoon. Two inches or more of rain is expected.  As well, we also have a Winter Storm Watch that has the likelihood to upgrade to a Warning.

And here’s why…

Models suggest the rain makes it transition to sleet and snow Wednesday afternoon and evening.

One particular model is putting out some hefty amounts, however since this is a model, i’m not taking this word for word. Look at the brighter colors, those are indicating roughly 10-12″ of snow, now that’s not my forecast, but i’m showing you the potential this system has.
