As I expected winter storm watches have gone up here. The local weather people are starting to pick up on this. So far they are calling for 5 to 7 inches here. The last model I have seen calls for 10 inches here and temps down to -15. Lets see what the next run calls for. Thats the AVN result. Waiting to find the latest MRF.

Here is the local weather summary for Louisville.





Monday morning update...
High pressure building into the Ohio Valley brought us the strong winds and falling temperatures yesterday. Now, as the high moves away, the process will be reversed - southerly winds will start us on a warming trend. The big question mark for the week will be a storm coming northward out of the Gulf Coastal states. This storm will be a big rain- and snow-maker for parts of the Ohio Valley. It is still too early to tell how much snow it will bring our area.

Honestly it probably won't be a big deal for the eastern 2/3rds of Ohio. The western 1/3rd will have the problem.

BTW I was looking over the maps a little closer. This storm may become a blizzard. It looks as if the low will pass east of Cincinnati with a 998 mb pressure. Sitting around North Dakota/Nebraska border will be a 1044mb high. There is a serious pressure difference there. If you can find the maps on the National Climatic Data Center's website for the blizzard of 1978 (Jan 23rd I believe) you will see these storms evolve in almost the same way. The blizzard of 78 however had a much deeper low. But a 46mb pressure difference will create a large and strong wind field.

Kentucky to get slammed by major winter storm!

We have been talking about this as a possibility for the past week and it looks like ol' man winter is going to deliver. For some areas of the state, this could be the biggest snow since the "dusting" of 1998. Let me caution you here that this will NOT be as widespread with the heavy snow as that one was. Probably not even close.
The midday models continue to trend toward the eastward scenario I outlined yesterday. I have been on board for the low travelling from Louisiana into eastern Tennessee to near Pittsburgh by Thursday. I can still find now reason to deviate from that. The models are heading in that direction and the major puch of arctic air heading down the plains is likely being underplayed by the models. That underplaying is likely leading to a slightly more westward track. The depth of the cold and the track of the low are always important in forecasting winter storms. That importance is amplified this go around because of the holiday travel period and because of the overall amount precipitation expected. Not to mention the bitter cold that follows the storm.

What is my call? Well it is still a bit early. Here is a quick look at what I am expecting to happen across the state. Let's start with the east. East of a line from Mt. Sterling to London seem to be predominately rain. That said, a quick heavy snowfall is possible before the event ends on Thursday.

In the counties along and just west of I-75, including the Lexington Metro, a wintry mix of rain, sleet, freezing rain and maybe some snow will develop on Wednesday. This will then likely make a quick transition to heavy snow Wednesday evening into Thursday morning with several inches possible. This is the area that could also see some significant icing.
From E-Town to Augusta and points north and west, a snowstorm looks to be in the cards. Someone in this area could get a foot or more of snow into Thursday. THIS IS ONLY A PRELIMINARY CALL ON MY PART. Until I become certain of the lows exact track, that is as specific as I can get. You are urged to continue to check back in for the latest forecasts on this developing winter storm.

You may actually see some watches going up for parts of the state this afternoon. Those would likely be from the NWS offices in Paducah and Louisville. One particular forecaster (Mr. Funk) at Louisville has had an excellent handle on this storm for a few days now. By the way, thanks for reading the blog! This could also be the coldest Christmas since 1989 for much of Kentucky as below zero temps are looking more and more like a possibility.


This info is from our local weatherman's blog and can be found here.

It is shaping up to be an exciting weather week to say the least. We are supposed to be heading out of town to go to various family events. If we get this mess we will just have to see everyone later. I am not up to driving in this mess right now.

Jonna,

Rain-X nonfreezing wiper fluid will thaw that out in seconds. I use it year-round up here in CNY. The push button on my Envoy tailgate froze shut the other morning while open for five minutes so the window would not stay shut. Rain-X thawed that instantly. It has not frozen in my wiper system yet and I've used it for multiple winters up here. It works far better than any other non-freezing wiper fluid I've seen up here.

Six inches - not too bad if it falls over several hours. We got four inches of lake effect yesterday (Sunday) morning in less than an hour's time. We had slight ice on the driveway when I awoke and about four inches after cleaning up, walking dogs and making coffee. Not a bad thing at all if you're not on the road. I live off a county road up here due to the winters and it had not even been plowed yet -- that indicates all efforts were focused on I81 east of us. I've got a friend in Cincinnati who says that snow is not a regular visitor to them like this storm. Just remember that pulling donuts in the snow is fun in the parking lot -- but not on the road.

Im thinking if you drew a line that connected Evansville, IN, Cincinnati, OH, Columbus, OH and Cleveland, OH you'd find the bad stuff to the north and west of that line. I'd guess there would be a heavy snow belt in the range of 75 to 125 miles from that line. There will be much more snow covering a much larger area but this path is where you may see well inexcess of a foot of snow. Some places may see locally two feet.

Keep in mind that forecast models are known to change. But since you have basicall 2-1/2 days notice there isn't much room for error.


Hey Indy hope you do not have plans to quit your day Job. Both Noaa and the weather channel disagree with your forcast.

But what they hey; I will remain optomistict, lets see who is right


I am putting my money on the experts.
