More Flooding Issues Ahead

Hello! We are now really coming into spring full ahead with showers and thunderstorms littering the forecast this week. Previous rains have caused lots of flooding around the region and the ground is still saturated. The next few days will all likely feature some sort of precipitation for the most of us, however, most of the heavier stuff will be isolated. Lets take a look at what we are dealing with here. is supported by custom essay writing service

Today we will see off and on sunshine along with the occasional rain shower. Highs will range between 72-76 degrees. A stronger wave of energy will work its way into the area tonight and may bring a shot of heavy rain to the region. Heres what the future radar shows:


The main energy stays in the southern parts of the state. Once we get into the heating of the day tomorrow, more showers and storms will begin to pop up. The storms tomorrow will be more scattered in nature compared to some of the previous systems weve seen. Ill keep you updated as more info comes in.

East Kentucky Snowfall Forecast

Hey guys, the entire state of Kentucky is under a winter storm WARNING as we head into one of the biggest snow storms we have seen in over a decade. Snow will spread over the area between 2AM and 4AM. Heavy snow showers will be persistent until the evening hours on Monday. These snow showers will be accompanied by some very cold temps, so every flake that falls will stick. Heres my take on how much snow we will receive. snowforekywx

Stay tuned, Ill have more later. Im pretty sure this is the final call for snowfall, however, Ill have plenty of observations and reports to relay. Thanks for stopping by!

Get Ready, Here Comes The Snow!

Hey guys, Im just looking over the most recent data and all I can say is wow. As of right now, snow lovers, REJOICE! We are looking at a possible significant winter storm on our heels.

This one has been on the radar for a while, the models have shown a southern system for a few days. We are now in the sweet spot when it comes to model watching. A lot of times. we will see storms pop up 4-5 days out that end up trending too far north or completely dissipating. This one is less than 24 hours out. Im short on time, so lets get right to it.

The latest run of the NAM shows a storm passing to the south and pulling down TONS of cold air. Most of EKY seems to get in on a lot of snow per this run, check it out.

These maps from mesoscale models are not 100% accurate, even when we are this close to the actual event. However, I think this is proof enough to say that there will be some sort of significant snowfall event in Kentucky. The LP passes to the south and cuts NE once it passes the first quarter section of inflow. These type of systems are notorious for dropping lots of snow in our area. If this model run is correct, the map above could be a close representation to an actual forecast map.

The EURO is also on board with this storm. In the latest run, most of Kentucky gets slammed.


I should have a complete forecast map out within the next 12 hours, stay tuned! This one is worth watching.
