Possible accumulating snow Sunday night-Monday morning

Rain to Snow

Right now we have a front stalled to our north and we stay in the warm sector through Saturday.  A few scattered rain showers are possible Saturday morning, but our rain chances don't really increase until the evening.  That is when the Low that is over TX moves into the region.

Slight chance for a few scattered morning showers.  It will be breezy and warmer Saturday ahead of the approaching cold front with highs climbing into the mid and upper 50s.

Our rain chances increase during the evening hours as the cold front starts to move through the area.

We could see a little rain/snow mix on the back side of the front Sunday morning, but I'm not expecting any real accumulation

Possible Snow Sunday Night - Early Monday Morning

The models are starting to pick up on a "sneaky" mid-level disturbance that will move through the region south of the Ohio River creating some snow for us.  I'm concerned that we may see a frontogenetical band of accumulating snow.  The BIG question is how much and where that may set up!

This has the potential to impact our Monday morning commute.

Any snow that does set up should be ending around 7am Monday.

Possible Accumulating Snow

I think the best chance of seeing accumulating snow will be along and south of the W. KY and Bluegrass Pkwy, that area could see 1-2".  But, I can not rule out a Trace to 1" as far north as the Ohio River (including the Metro).

Final Thoughts...

Reed and Kristin will be watching this "sneaky" system all weekend long and will provide you with the latest information about this potential little snow maker.

Next Tuesday's Storm still looks to be a rain maker with 1-3" of rain.

Stay Tuned...!
