Today’s GFS and NAM have become pretty close to each other with regard to the light snow storm expected tomorrow. And, they both continue the faster approach of the snow. As it looks now, snow should begin tomorrow morning. Arrival time should be between 10 A.M. and NOON. Snow should continue through the afternoon, then diminish during the evening. Accumulation around the Louisville area should run in the 1″ – 2″ range. Higher snow totals are likely over most of Kentucky south of Louisville. Plus, another Gulf coastal storm forming early Monday could add additional snow for the southern half of the commonwealth. That storm should not effect southern Indiana or northern KY.
So, by midday Monday, accumulations of snow could reach the 4″-8″ range over southern KY while the Louisville area remains in the 1″ – 2″ range (or lower by then). Temperatures Monday should jump into the 40’s, so any snow we get won’t last long.
Looking ahead…yet another Clipper appears on the horizon for Tuesday. Current indications are that the surface reflection of the system will move north of Kentucky. That puts us in the zone where not much happens. After that temperatures should begin a major upward trend – could even reach the 60’s by next Friday.
Monday we’ll celebrate Presidents Day. However, there really is no “official” day to celebrate our Presidents. The official name is still Washington’s Birthday. But, after the 1971 act to make the three-day weekends, people have just been calling it Presidents Day. But, it’s not!
