Following some light snow and flurries last night (some areas may have had a dusting), we’re looking at a couple of dry days ahead with increasing temperatures. We’ll be back into the mid-50s to around 60 by tomorrow and then the mid-60s to low 70s on Friday with breezy southerly winds in place. If we reach those temps, they will be close to record highs.
Attention then shifts to our next round of rain. While chances increase Friday, the brunt of the activity is expected Friday night and into Saturday. Just like Sunday night and Monday, we are in line to see another round of significant accumulations across the state, along with some high winds. Below is a look at those accumulations from the Weather Prediction Center. In some good news, total accumulations have gone down in recent model runs. We were initially looking at 1 to 3 inches, but that looks to now be in the 0.5-to-2-inch range, with the lowest values across Western Kentucky and highest for Southeastern Kentucky. However, flash flooding and flooding of low-lying locations will still be possible, especially after the rains we got earlier in the week. Be sure to take the time to get animals out of flood-prone areas. Severe weather with damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be possible. Make sure to have those NOAA weather radios ready! We could see some snow mix in the backside of the system, but just like last night, we aren’t looking at any impacts.
