Snow Update

3:54PM January 5, 2017

The snow has arrived and it continues to snow lightly. Radar is showing the snow filtering in from the west. The darker contours indicate periods of heavier snow, that’s something to watch as the evening wears on. A general 1″-3″ is expected.

Today there were already school closings and for some that went, early dismissals.

With that being said. Lets see how the roads are:

Light Snow Maker on Valentine’s Day.

Posted at 5:00 PM February 13,2015 by Darius Mack

Happy Valentine’s eve! Well there is an extra spark into your Valentine’s day, i’m tracking more snow on its way. GFS suggests a band of snow swings north to south by Saturday afternoon, I’m looking for the time window of about 12-3pm, that’s when some spots may have to deal with some issues on the roads. The good news is that the snow does exit just in time for your evening plans, at least in central Kentucky, places in eastern Kentucky may get more snow than us.

GFS model runs Saturday

Here are my thoughts on how this plays out, some can expect just a coating, and some may see localized amounts around 2″. It’s sort of similar to Thursday’s snow, except this one has the potential of bringing little bit extra accumulation .

Snowfall potential Saturday

Have a safe weekend!

Winter Weather Tracker Update. #KYWX

Posted at 4:25 AM January 26,2015 by Darius Mack

Good early morning gang, we’re watching for the possibility of slick travel this morning as snow moves across parts of the region this morning. Here is a current look at the Radar from Intellicast. What you’re seeing is the low-level wrap around moisture as the LOW tracks east.

This isn’t a widespread snow, but lets check and see how those temps are this morning. Any temps at or below freezing is something to be concerned about, several areas could see some ICY spots on the roads this morning.

Now lets track those road conditions.

Since road conditions look to have deteriorated and temp are subfreezing, The School Watch Mete is under a LOW-MODERATE chance for a closing, there is an increased risk however of a school delay.

Tracking Winter Weather #KYWX

4:30 AM November 17,2014

Good Monday Morning! I’m tracking the latest on winter, here is a look at the current radar, the warm layer line has went down SE just a bit, and several areas north of Lexington should be seeing the sleet starting to mix in with the snow this hour.

What’s crucial in these type of events are those temperatures, temps are just 2 degrees shy in Lexington of hitting the freezing mark, Frankfort is coming in at 33 degrees, and places further northwest are showing 32 degree readings as of 4AM!

How are those roads looking in Lexington so far? It looks like they’re staying wet, but as we wait the next couple of hours we could see some messy stuff on the roads this morning.
