Several Chances for Snow

Several Chances for Snow

Unsettled Weather Pattern

A cold front moved through Kentuckiana Tuesday evening and in its wake we have a cold and breezy northwesterly flow.  This kind of pattern during the winter will often will produce a few stray flurries or snow showers behind a cold front.  So don't be surprise to see a few scattered flakes Wednesday.

Clipper Train...

I'm calling the upper level wind pattern (Jet Stream) the "Clipper Train" because we will remain in a strong northwesterly flow through Saturday.  The Jet Stream will be diving south out of Canada and pushing several clipper like disturbances in our direction.  These systems will be fast moving and will not have a lot of moisture to work with.  However, each one can and probably will produce some light snow showers.  Timing out each individual clipper is almost impossible until we are about 24 hours out.

Wednesday will be cold and breezy with wind chills in the teens to 20s.  Just a slight chance for stray flurries or snow shower. 

Thursday through Friday

This period looks interesting and a bit challenging.  Several disturbances will move through the region during this time.  While none look to be a big snow maker, I think this is when we have our best chance of seeing some light accumulating snow.

Possible Snowfall

Futurecast is showing between .5 to 1.5 inches Thursday-Friday morning.  While the individual snowfall amounts on the map are not set in stone, I do like the range of .5 to 1.5 inches.
