Another Shot Of Winter Ahead

Light snow and a mix moves in late tonight.

Good Monday to one and all. We are coming off a wintry weekend across the region and we have another shot of winter moving in tonight and early Tuesday. This may have an impact on travel conditions for the Tuesday morning commute.

Temps today will only reach the mid and upper 30s with an increase in clouds. Light snow will break out across western Kentucky by early evening and will slowly work eastward into the overnight hours. There isn’t a ton of juice with this system, but it should be able to put down some light accumulation. Here’s a look at the areas most at risk for up to an inch of snow…

It’s the timing of all this that may actually cause some problems for Tuesday morning travelers. Some delays or cancellations are certainly possible.

Thermometers will slowly spike up into the mid and upper 30s by Tuesday afternoon with light snow becoming more of a rain/snow mix of plain rain. You can see this on the GFS forecast…

That’s not the best Valentine’s Day weather forecast we’ve ever seen.

Wednesday looks good with temps in the 40s for highs under partly sunny skies. Another fast-moving storm will bring widespread rain to the region on Thursday. Would a rumble of thunder surprise you? Nah… me either.

Much colder air then works in by Friday as we go back into a pattern conducive for wintry weather. This may carry us through most of next week and I’m starting to wonder if all of this is leading up to a big bang for the closing weeks of winter. Time will tell.

Have a great Monday and check back for updates. Take care.
