Thursday School Watch Meter

8:15pm 03/2

I’m going to be short and to the point since I have mid-terms this week. Just when you think we are done with snow, it seems that it always makes it’s special and maybe “surprising” appearances, I know this morning’s flurries and chilly conditions reminds us that winter is still here.

Tomorrow, I’m talking possible rain and mixing, something that is sort of catching my attention.

Here’s the timing 11pm-1am is when I suspect rain and snow to arrive, and it will continue through Thursday afternoon. Temps today have hovered around the mid to upper 30s and it might not take long for pavement temps to reach the freezing mark which is why I think it’s possible for some accumulating snow tomorrow.

The WxBell HiResNam is showing a system pivoting across the west and will swing rain and snow from the southwest to northern zones. Keep in mind, temperatures will be critical on who gets what. With that being said, I’m not saying this is going to be a MAJOR issue, nor am I saying it’s not going to have any impact. It’s something the be aware of, especially for school systems when students are headed to the buses tomorrow morning. Also, keep in mind that models have a hard time picking out which areas will see temps at our below freezing, I’m convinced that tonight we could see snow, especially in valley areas. but I’m thinking more in the form of light flakes because there will be some drier air to tackle with. By 7am tomorrow morning much of central and northern Kentucky could be seeing rain and possibly soggy wet snow flakes. There is BUST potential with this, because like I said temperatures will be key on who gets what.

The School Watch Meter is at a  4/11 and here’s why:

           I do believe there is potential for a school delay tomorrow morning, rain and snow leads to messy road conditions. However, my confidence on this forecast is at 60%.

          Yes, I think we’ll see snow, I don’t honestly don’t think it will be enough snow to close school

          There is definitely freeze potential, anything that falls could freeze and stick on the pavement

           There is a possibility for a school delay but it is not guaranteed

School watch meter Thursday

 

This is what I’m sticking with, do your homework! If there actually happens to be a school closing. better safe than sorry!

Good evening gang, we’ve had a break from the rain as it moved out this morning, i’ll say its been decent overall. Tonight, lets say cool and refreshing, tommorow night may be a different story and i’ll show you what i’m talking about.

Thursday night’s temperatures indicate possible subfreezing temps and some spots below freezing, courtesy of a northwest flow of air. A frost Advisory is in effect for the area through 8AM Thursday,Which means we’ll have to watch out for Frost, a frost advisory is suspected for tommorow night as well. I have some friends who have backyard gardens, the best thing you want to do is take those plants inside to prevent damage.

Also, if you have any pets make sure they are not out for long periods of time that morning, we’re not talking subzero temps, but its been a while since our skin felt 32 degrees, so please be considerate of your pets! I’m also watching out for a similar cold pattern early next week, be sure to follow me on twitter @dariusmack_wx for the latest!

Stay safe and take care! 😉
