Snow Chances and Cold Weather Continues


The cold weather will continue this week as the eastern half of the country remains under a stubborn upper level trough. The current temperature at the Warren County airport is 32 degrees under cloudy skies. Skies will remain cloudy as a weak disturbance dives into our area tonight bringing a chance for light snow. Much like the other disturbances that have impacted us in the past week this disturbance only brings a chance for a dusting to a half inch of snow. A few locations could see up to an inch to our north. Light snow looks to begin around 5 PM and end around midnight. Additional snow showers are possible overnight into the morning with low temperatures around 25 degrees. The map below showing accumulated snowfall with tonight's system according to the 12Z NAM paints most of Kentucky with up to an inch of snow.

Heading into the work week, the upper level trough will continue to keep our temperatures well below normal. Except for a few flurries possible Monday, the beginning of the week looks dry with temperatures on Monday and Tuesday struggling to reach 30 degrees with lows in the teens. On Wednesday, temperatures will reach the middle 30s ahead of an area of low pressure swinging through the southeast. Southern Kentucky will be right on the northwest edge of the precipitation with most of the moisture to our southeast. A few rain or snow showers are possible Wednesday and Wednesday night with no accumulations expected at this time. However, any changes in the track of the low could mean more impacts for our area so we will be keeping an eye on any possible changes to Wednesday's forecast.
