Substantial Snowfall possible
Wed., Jan. 12, 2022 4:30 P.M.
GFS forecast this morning generates 8+ inches of snow for Louisville from late Saturday through Sunday. Other models have wide-ranging solutions to a developing storm over the region – from mostly rain to rain/snow mix to just a little snow.
With many complexities working into various model’s ideas, it’s far too early to know how this system will ultimately come together. But it will be fun watching the next few days as various ideas come and go. The model BLEND (a combination of many U.S. models with others from Canada, Europe and Australia) currently predicts 2.5 to 3″ from this system. BUT, the same model predicts ZERO measurable precipitation during that time. See how confusing this stuff can get?
Meanwhile, as we move on, more and more clarity should come into view. At least I hope so. Personally I’m hoping the GFS comes through – as it often does.
As mentioned a week or so back, the “unloading” of cold arctic air from Canada is well underway. As usual in La Nina winters, the bulk of the cold air has moved far more east than south, We’ve seem some below normal temperatures, but our neighbors over the Great Lakes and northeastern states have seem some really cold weather. This trend is showing signs of lasting another two weeks or so. But the warm part of La Nina should return in February.
