    Winter Weather Threat Mode Wednesday 1/20/16

    Monday evening update.

    I'm going to go ahead and go into a Winter Weather Threat mode for Wednesday. It looks like we have a very good chance for accumulating snow in most of Kentucky. Western Kentucky looks to receive freezing rain/sleet or ice.

    Most of Central and south central Kentucky now look to get 2-4" of snow by Thursday. There could be some spots that get up to 5".

    Cities included in the 2-4" category are Princeton, Henderson City, Owensboro, Bowling Green, Monticello, Corbin, London, Louisville, Richmond, Winchester, Mt. Sterling, Lexington, Owenton, Carrollton, Cynthiana.

    Northern and Eastern Kentucky are looking to receive 1-2".

    Western Kentucky could see .01-.10" of freezing rain/sleet plus 1-2" of snow. This total could be lower depending on when the freezing rain changes over to snow.

    Please take note that these totals will likely change between now and Wednesday. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on how much they may get in their area.

    Thank's @nWo. The system coming in Thursday night through the weekend is looking to be a monster from what I've seen on the weather apps I use. The apps I use are not as reliable as your forecasts, but they are usually in the same neighborhood. Looking forward to your updates.

    The weekend storm is looking like a big one.

    Thanks for the updates.

    I dread the snow and cold the older I get. I used to love it back in the day. I'm guessing once these patterns set in that it won't be over until April, same as last winter.

    The entire state but the biggest accumulations look to be in central, south central, northern and eastern Kentucky.

    I saw an extended outlook. I wasn't happy about it.

    nWo, I am okay with snow. I can't stand the uber frigid temperatures. Do you see anything in the extended forecast that is worse than what we have now?

    for the next couple of weeks I don't. Although I think we will see our worst weather in February.

    I am so dreading Wednesday. I have a meeting I absolutely, positively have to be at the resort for. I have no dog sitter, so I can't spend the night. It's going to be a long, miserable drive to and ffrom.
