Good afternoon and Happy New Year!
Winter arrived Dec 21st in the calendar year, but the weather has not been agreeing, it’s been sort of mild with a lot of rain for the past few weeks, not really that exciting for some waiting for the winter time snow. However, today I have some exciting news for snow lovers.
There’s potential for a winter storm system later into the week and models have been consistent with the snow chances across the commonwealth.
Let’s look at some comparisons.
The European model shows widespread snow across much the Midwest from Friday evening and into Sunday.
Of course, in Kentucky there’s always a fight between the dividing line of snow and rain, but this run shows that most of the precip does transition to snow.
Here’s a look at the snowfall output from that model run. *THIS IS NOT A FORECAST*
I’m sharing this to highlight the potential for significant snowfall accumulations, I wouldn’t take those numbers verbatim… We’ll have to see if this still holds together by Thursday night. 😉
The GFS run also shows a similar track for the winter storm.
And the NAM….
Things to highlight
- Winter Storm Threat Friday Night- Sunday
- SNOW/MIX Line will set up somewhere in Kentucky
- The further North you go the better chance of seeing more snow totals, below are my initial thoughts on the Winter storm set up.
