Happy Friday folks! I hop everyone has enjoyed their week so far, and as I am sure you are all aware, we have some snow on the way.
While during the day today will actually be quite nice, with highs in the upper 50s to even 60 across WABBLES, conditions will very quickly deteriorate when we hit the late evening to overnight hours.
Once we get to around 6 pm tomorrow, we will see the radar begin to light up with rain that will very quickly turn to all snow across the region. This will last continuously until early Saturday morning when the system exits our area. Thanks to the bitter cold that will be paying us a visit, a few snow showers Saturday can’t be ruled out, but generally won’t be significant.
This snow will get fairly heavy at times with some spots experiencing snowfall rates up to 1″ per hour. These bouts of heavy snow should remain fairly isolated within WABBLES, with more widespread heavy snow off to our east. As far as totals are concerned, a solid 1-2″ is on the table with our eastern counties (Barren & Allen) seeing potential for 3-6″. There will be a sharp cutoff between 1-2″ and those higher totals.
Even those these totals aren’t anything too crazy, it will still be enough to cause impacts on roadways and make travel quite difficult, especially in the overnight hours. If you don’t have to go out, I wouldn’t.
Temps will be crashing as we go into tonight and when we wake up on Saturday we will likely be seeing temps in the lower 20s and wind chills getting close to the single digits. So, if you have anywhere to be Saturday morning, make sure you are bundled up!
High pressure will quickly set into the region on Saturday keeping any more big weather makers from barreling through for the weekend. Temps will not make it out of the 20s on Saturday, but will try and recover a bit on Sunday with highs remaining in the low-mid 40s.
That will be all for this update WABBLITES, I hope everyone enjoys the snow and is safe out on the roads tonight. I will have our social media sites linked below where you can get further updates.
Have a blessed day!
