1st call for Snow 1/15-17/2022

Recommended Posts

This will be my first call for snow accumulations. I know the ranges are wider than I normally use but there is still some uncertainty on the track the system will take. The GFS has the track a little further south than yesterday.  If it follows the GFS those along the Ohio River won't receive much snow. The NAM has


the track with most of Kentucky getting some good accumulations.

First is the GFS.

The period covered is from 10 pm EST/9 central Friday to 4 am EST/ 3 central.




The NAM covers almost the same period but is short by 3 hours because it is the very end of the 18z run.




This is what each model is showing for possible snow accumulations.








Now, this is my first call for snow accumulations. It will narrow down starting tomorrow. I will post my second call probably tomorrow morning. As I said earlier the range is wider than normal. I'm trying to take into account there is still some uncertainty on the exact track.

Good grief, looking at the NAM model (and living in NKY), that system's got more movement than a Fernando Valenzuala screwball.

It was worst yesterday morning. It had Kentucky getting almost no snow at all. The succeeding runs brought the snow back into the picture. Wouldn't be surprised to see that happen again.

2nd call


This is going to be a difficult one. The models have been jumping back and forth on the track of the system. The GFS has the show continuing on Monday. The real tricky part is how much warm air aloft will move in. The NAM is showing more of a freezing rain event. The more freezing rain will that falls will cut down on the snow accumulations. That along with the heavy wet snow that will fall could cause some power outages.

Here's what I think will happen at this time. There will be a sharp cut-off on where the snow will fall. Tomorrow we should get a pretty good look at what will fall this weekend.

Boone and Kenton are now in an advisory. Did the storm push slightly more west than you anticipated? 

Yes, it did. I was torn about taking NKY out of the snow area.
