Weekend snowfall totals and surprising stats!

A couple of small disturbances will be moving through the area this weekend producing light snow showers.  The first one moves in overnight into early Saturday morning - mainly over central and southern Kentucky.  Light accumulations of 1" or less possible, most areas will probably just see a dusting.  It will be cold enough (teens), that any snow will stick and cause slick roads.   Another disturbance moves through Sunday with a light mix possible.  

Total weekend snowfall accumulation is pretty small.  The smallest is shown below on the 1st map (RPM model).  This is a higher resolution weather model showing the light snow south early Saturday, then light snow north early Sunday, with very little in the middle for Louisville.

The next two maps are lower resolution weather models (GFS and EURO), and both show less than 1" for Saturday and Sunday combined.  Look below the maps for some startling stats I dug up today!



The last time we had a completely dry 7-day stretch of weather was in January 2013 - there was a 7 and 8-day stretch.  The last 6-day dry spell was in October.  We did have two 5-day dry spells last month. 

We dropped to the single digits this morning for the 9th time this year/season.

We have had over 19" of snow this year, that is about 12" above average so far.
