Good evening everyone, well I’m going to get straight to the point. Winter weather is back on the horizon, especially within the next 24-36 hours. This could be mother nature’s cruelest April Fools joke. A Winter Storm Watch is out for much of the area as we anticipate rain and snow late Friday and into early Saturday.

The GFS shows a system diving out of the Midwest bringing rain late Friday, before making the transition to a mostly snow event for most.

Tonight I’ll post my thoughts on potential snowfall. So far, i’m not seeing anything extreme with snow amounts.

P.S. i’m seeing more snow chances into the week ahead :/

Good late evening! April has arrived, and its slowly beginning to feel like spring.  Of course you can’t have a Kentucky spring without a chance of severe weather. The storm prediction center in Norman, Oklahoma has highlighted much of the Ohio valley under some risk of severe weather with western Kentucky having the greatest risk for damaging winds and even a few tornadoes possible.

I think the main threat is the damaging winds, but there could be some isolated spin ups associated. These types of tornadoes don’t usually last long, but they can form and go away quickly. Make sure that you do have a severe weather plan ready in case of an imminent severe weather threat.
