Valentine’s Day weather treat

Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016  (Noon)

Everything still looks on track with previous discussions on today’s snow.  After a dusting this this morning, steady snow should be arriving by 1 P.M.  Heaviest snows  should be between 2 P.M. and 5 P.M.  Models today have been a little more generous with snow accumulations, so I’m going to increase my forecast a bit.  I now expect we’ll see a 2″ – 3″ snow accumulation this afternoon and early evening.  Snow should fade to a few flurries by 7 P.M. to 9 P.M. tonight.  Rising temperatures into the 40’s tomorrow should wipe out the snow quickly.

That third “short wave” I’ve been discussing the past few days is still going to be the biggest one.  Look for heavy snows 6″ + along the Appalachians (from eastern KY up into New England tomorrow.  That system could also bring us a little rain (especially east of I-65) late tomorrow.

Another clipper should bring us a little rain and/or snow late Tuesday.  Then, a BIG warming trend later this week!

Today’s snow…

Snow: approx.:  1 P.M. – 8 P.M.

Snow accumulation: Louisville area 2″ -3″.         The southern half of Kentucky will see higher totals.  South of the parkways should get 4″-6″ of snow, especially west of I-65.  Southern Indiana will be on the lighter side – mostly 1″ -2″, but up to 3″ near the river.

Let the fun begin!  Happy Valentine’s day!
