Thursday Afternoon Update

"A" for Effort…
“A” for Effort…

This Afternoon – Sunny – High 54 / Tonight – Clear – Low 30

7am 40 ~ 10am 48 ~ 1pm 52 ~ 4pm 47 ~ 7pm 41

High pressure continues to build over the area behind a cold front that advanced to our east last night.  This has been responsible for ushering in cooler, drier air across south central Kentucky today, which will be basically a carbon copy for our Friday.  Have a look at the current surface setup below:

Fri – Sunny – High 55 / Fri Night – Clear, Low 34

7am 34 ~ 10am 48 ~ 1pm 55 ~ 4pm 50 ~ 7pm 43

More of the same.  No need to bore you.  High pressure will maintain control across the region, keeping sunny skies in the forecast.  Light, northwesterly flow will keep chilly conditions around.

Sat – Partly Sunny – High 63 / Sat Night – Partly Cloudy – Low 38

“Sound that broken record, Tommy!”  Rinse & repeat forecast, folks.  Besides a slight temperature warm up, expect our atmosphere to remain calm & peaceful under sunny skies.

GFS & ECMWF Keep Snow Potential Alive…

The 12z runs of both the GFS and Euro model continue to keep our snow potential alive for early next week.  The image below is the Euro snow accumulation model, valid through next Wednesday at 12pm.  Remember to take this with a grain of salt:


It is important to note that models are not fond of handling winter systems very well, and a solution won’t be found until we get closer to the event. It is still fun to look at, especially if you’re a snow lover.

That’s all for now, friends. I’ll be back tomorrow morning with a fresh analysis regarding the weekend forecast, and if the models continue to hint at snowfall next week.
