WEATHER UPDATE - APRIL 20, 2021

It’s been awhile since I have been able to post a blog but since Kentucky weather is being the typical Kentucky weather, I have some updates to pass along this evening.

 

Hopefully, ya’ll were able to enjoy the warmth and sunshine over the last couple of days because we will experience about a 20 degree drop in high temperatures by this time tomorrow.

 

For tonight we have an 80% of seeing showers, both rain AND snow showers. That’s right, SNOW showers for overnight hours. Little or no snow accumulation is expected, it’s too warm anyways for any of that to stick. Lows tonight will be just around freezing, 32-33 degrees.

 

A Freeze Watch will be effective Thursday morning from 2 AM EST to 10 AM EST. A Freeze Watch means that sub-freezing temperatures will be likely. Freeze conditions could kill sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.

 

Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes, they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing.

 

Moving on to take a look at the forecast for this weekend into the beginning of next week, I promise it gets better, we will be dealing with frost overnight Wednesday & Thursday. Then some showers & storms on Saturday. Here is the better news, by next Tuesday we should see 80 degrees! So a warm up is on the way. Take a look at your more detailed forecast below:

 

Wednesday – 30% AM Rain; Cloudy becoming mostly sunny; Highs around 50

Wednesday Night – 20% Showers in the evening; Frost overnight; Lows in the low 30s

 

Thursday – AM Frost; Mostly Sunny; Highs around 55

Thursday Night – Frost overnight; Mostly Clear; Lows around 33

 

Friday – AM Frost; Partly Sunny; Highs around 62

Friday Night – 60% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 40s

 

Saturday – 80% Showers/Storms; Highs around 60

Saturday Night – 70% Showers/Storms; Lows around 44

 

Sunday – Partly Sunny; Highs in the mid 60s

Sunday Night – Mostly Clear; Lows around 40

 

Monday – Sunny; Highs around 73

Monday Night – Mostly Clear; Lows around 50

 

Tuesday – Mostly Sunny; Highs around 80.

 

Don’t forget your forecast is subject to change.

 

If there are any major changes, I will be sure to update with a new blog!

 

I would love to see some of your spring pictures, you can email them to crystal@shorelinestations.com who knows you may see yours on our forecast graphics!

SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR THURSDAY 3/25/2021

Good Wednesday afternoon/evening folks. It has been a while since I have posted a weather update here within our blogs. It has been somewhat calm for the most part & as of tomorrow that looks to change since we do have a chance for severe weather in our local area.

 

Let’s get down to what we are watching for your Thursday:

 

The latest update has our area in a SLIGHT Risk for severe weather tomorrow (timing is currently from 3 PM to Midnight Eastern time, I will go into those details below). See below of the category definitions in regards to risks:

 

 

The main threats with these storms are damaging winds & even an isolated tornado, possibly for the South-Central KY area.

 

Now as of timing, as stated above, the time frame is currently at 3 PM through Midnight tomorrow & this is Eastern time. (also see attached graphics courtesy of NWS Louisville):

 

Thursday Morning – Early Afternoon – Could see some widespread showers & a few pop up thunderstorms, and we can’t rule out seeing brief heavy rainfall that could lead to some localized flooding issues.

 

Thursday Late Afternoon 2 PM – 7 PM Eastern Time – Southern KY will see scattered storms, a few of these storms could produce damaging winds & hail. We also cannot rule out an isolated tornado in the South-Central KY area, as mentioned above.

 

Thursday Evening – We will see a broken line of storms. These storms will still have the chance to be severe meaning we cannot rule out the threat of damaging winds or brief spin-up tornadoes. The severe threat will diminish as the night goes on by Midnight.

 

Overnight Thursday – As the severe weather threat diminishes, gusty winds will remain overnight. Sustained winds around 15-25 mph & gusts up to 35 mph are possible.

 

 

 

I will continue to monitor the latest forecasts & data & provide updates as needed here & on-air on 98.7 The Buck. As always we will have your live weather coverage from The Buck Weather Center when severe weather strikes.

 

If you are a business and would like to sponsor our weather blogs here on The Buck, be sure to send me an email and we will get you taken care of. Your business name & logo will be mentioned anytime our weather blog is mentioned and thousands of folks will see your name on social media platforms.

3:00 PM Update 2/17/2021 - Winter Storm Warning

A third winter storm will move in and affect parts of the region this evening into the overnight/early morning hours. A Winter Storm Warning will take effect at 7 PM EST / 6 PM CST this evening through 7 AM EST / 6 AM CST Friday morning, with a chance of this warning being cancelled prematurely once this system pushes through.

 

Snowfall amounts of 2-4" / 3-5" for our local area is what is in store to be received overnight tonight, Ice accumulations of 0.10" is also expected for the local area along with the snow.

 

This system will start off with snow this evening/oernight then will transition to sleet/freezing rain into the overnight early morning hours then to freezing drizzle by tomorrow mid-morning/afternoon.

 

Below are the most updated slides from the NWS conference call held at 2:30 PM this afternoon:

 

WARNINGS & ADVISORIES FOR THE STATE,

 

WINTER STORM TIMING

 

SUMMARY OF WHAT TO EXPECT

 

A LOOK AT END OF THE WEEK LOW TEMPS - BE CAUTIOUS OF INCREASED CHANCE OF FROSTBITE & HYPOTHERMIA IF HAVING TO BE OUTDOORS FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME,

 

Some positive news towards the end of the weekend on Sunday as we will not see sunshine but also high temps in the 40s, which in return will cause continuous melting. There is another system coming into the area Sunday night/Monday morning but this system will be mostly a rain system. There will be a slight chance of snow showers but it will be mostly rain, a cold rain at that.

 

By Tuesday we could see high temperatures around 50 degree.

 

I will keep you updated.

 

Stay safe, stay warm folks!

11:40 AM Tuesday February 16, 2021 - More Winter Weather

First off, I want to give a huge THANK YOU, to all of our line men & women, county road crew, state road crew, healthcare workers, essential workers, & anyone else who has to be out in this weather. For you guys and gals, we are truly thankful & appreciative! Prayers for your safety! A friendly little note, to help your mail carriers out, be safe while doing so, but try and knock off the ice on your mail box so they don't have to fight that battle. Also if you see any of these men & women out, pay it foward with a drink or meal, or even a Thank You, it goes a long way.

 

We have finally made it through this first winter system, now are you prepared for a second?

That’s what is on the table for late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning into late Thursday night/early Friday morning. Snow, sleet, freezing rain, & cold rain will all be on the table for this second system as it moves in late tomorrow night/early Thursday morning. Again just like with this winter storm from yesterday, uncertainty remains for which areas will receive what exact precipitation.

 

Expect a Winter Weather Advisory to be issued later on today for parts of the region.

 

Locally we are forecasted to receive 2-4” of additional snowfall on top of what we have already received this week. Below I have posted a couple of models with “predicted” snowfall totals, the NAM & GFS models. (These are just to show the difference, as we all have seen, from the start of the talk of the last storm until it got here, ALL forecasts from weather folks (including myself) even NWS was off. Winter weather stinks because of this.)

 

This is a look at the GFS Model through Friday at midnight.

 

This is a look at NAM model through Friday at midnight.

 

Also here is a look at a couple of updated briefing slides from the NWS:

 

 

 

As you can tell, there is quiet a bit of difference between the NAM & GFS models when it comes to snow totals. Again ideally, a range of 2-4" is more realistic for our area especially since we will be dealing with warmer temperatures.

 

Let's take a look at the detailed/extended forecast into this weekend:

 

Today - Flurries; Mostly Cloudy - Partly Sunny; Highs in the low 20s with wind chill values around 4.

Tonight - Mostly Cloudy; Lows around 10 with wind chill values around 0.

 

Wednesday - 30% Afternoon Snow Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the low 30s. 

Wednesday Night - 90% Snow/Freezing Rain; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid to upper 20s. New snow totals of 2-4" possible.

 

Thursday - 90% Freezing Rain/Snow/Rain; Cloudy; Highs in the low to mid 30s.

Thursday Night - 50% Snow Showers; Cloudy; Lows in the mid to upper teens.

 

Friday - Mostly Cloudy & Cold; Highs in the mid 20s.

Friday Night - Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the single digits.

 

Saturday - Mostly Sunny; Highs in the low to mid 30s.

Saturday Night - Partly Cloudy; Lows around 20.

 

Sunday - Mostly Sunny; Highs in the low 40s.

 

Again, this forecast will change & I will provide updates the best that I can on-air, on our Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/Classic-Country-987-The-Buck-WKDO-610411902307145 ). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, you're more than welcome to send me an email & I will answer and help out the best that I can.

6:30 PM Update - February 14, 2021 - Winter Storm Warning

Good evening, folks. Crystal here with another update in regards to our winter storm event that has already started to move into the state.

 

One thing I would like to reiterate is that this storm will have 2 waves. The first wave of this system will have widespread precipitation developing by midnight, some of which has already moved into our local region this evening. While the northern part of the state into southern Indiana will see snow with this first wave, south of the river & northwest of the Bluegrass/Western Parkways will see sleet/snow mix. Southeast of the Parkways will see more freezing rain. The areas seeing snow from this first wave will be an average of 1-3". Ice totals will possible up to 1/4". Precipitation is expected to decine by mid-morning tomorrow, which will allow a small break before this second wave makes it way in.

 

Moving on to the second wave, this will be a more significant wave and pack a punch so to speak. For our local region here in South Central Kentucky, we should see this arrive by tomorrow afternoon around Noon to 1 PM EST. This wave will continue to push it's way through the rest of the state as your afternoon/evening goes on. There will be more of a colder air with this wave compared to the first wave therefore the transition of snow/sleet/freezing rain will shift more towards the East as the days goes on into the evening and night hours.

 

I have attached within this blog, are the latest slides issued from NWS as of 5:27 PM EST (please pay attention to the date & time of these blogs and slides so you are not confused).

 

 

 

 

 

As you can tell with these updated slides, the snow accumulation has decreased a bit for some areas, I am still sticking with my previously mentioned total range of 4-8". Ice accumulations continue to change, areas could see up to 1/4" while others can possible see up to 1/2". If you notice, those areas with the higher snow totals will have a decreased ice total & those areas with a higher ice total have a decreased snow total. It's all about the movement of the warm air & cold air.

 

I will be sure to update with another blog if there are any other MAJOR changes with this system the closer it moves to our area. Until then I hope everyone has made their necessary preparations especially since power outages are bound to take place with this system. 

 

I will go ahead and say after this system there will be a small break Tuesday night into Wednesday before another system brings in more snow/sleet/freezing rain Thursday (I am monitoring).

 

Please be sure to check on the elderly, make sure outdoor pets/livestock are taken care of, & it doesn't hurt to have multiple emergency kits made up for home & for each vehicle (including filling up on fuel).

 

I will update when needed. Thanks for following & sharing!

Sunday February 14, 2021 - WINTER STORM WARNING

Happy Valentines Day folks. If you are looking for some Valentines plans to do with your sweetie, well you may want to go and start making preparations (if you haven't already), as that Winter Storm Watch has been upgraded to a Winter Storm WARNING.

 

As stated in my previous Facebook posts, accumulations I was expecting for our local area were between 4-8" other areas 3-6", well NWS has stated with this warning that snow accumulations have been updated for 4-7".

 

Let me give you the details below along with the most updated briefing slides:

 

A winter storm system will bring two waves of wintry precipitation to the region tonight through Tuesday. There could be significant accumulations of snow, sleet, & possible freezing rain. The heaviest precipitation is expected to occur onday afternon into Monday night.

 

Winter Storm Warning will take effect at 7 PM EST /6 PM CST this evening Sunday February 14, 2021 & go through Tuesday at 1 PM EST / 12 PM CST February 16, 2021.

 

What: Total Snow & sleet accumulations are forecasted at 3-7" and ice accumulations between a light glaze & 0.25".

 

Impacts: Travel could be very difficult to impossible. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning/evening commute.

 

If you MUST travel, keep an emergency kit on hand and stocked with a flashlight, batteries, blanket, food, water, medication, & other items to  suit your needs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can stay updated here, on air on 98.7, on my personal Facebook page as well as The Buck's Facebook page (Classic Country 98.7 The Buck) for live video updates as they come in.

Friday February 12, 2021 - MORE WINTER WEATHER FORTHCOMING!

Good Friday afternoon folks! It has been a hectic week in the weather world & it looks like that will be the trend as we look into late Sunday night into Tuesday for another winter weather event and then again later in the week on Thursday.

 

Please keep in mind, our main goal is to focus here LOCALLY on our local areas such as Casey, Taylor, Boyle, Lincoln, Pulaski, Adair, Russell, & Marion counties plus others. DO NOT feed into the hype if you see fake sources mentioning out of the ordinary amounts of snow. ALWAYS read your articles in their entirety to fully understand what can happen and what is possible as totals show different with different models and are ALWAYS changing.

 

So since that has been mentioned, let’s get down on what to possibly expect for this second round of winter weather, keep in mind like the last event we had the forecast is definitely subject to change. Thanks to the long-term AFD, we are better able to explain this in simple terms. 

 

So the main focus is on a system that will actually come in two waves. The first wave will arrive late Sunday night/early Monday morning.  

 

The second wave, which has a possibility of being stronger will arrive Monday night into Tuesday morning. Now unlike our ice event we had Wednesday evening into early yesterday morning, this system will be more of a wintry mix due to the increase of moisture it has. Now which areas will get what kind of precipitation? That is still uncertain but I will continue to keep a close eye on the track of this system, as well as model trends. As of right now, to give an idea, for much of the state, we will see a mix of snow & sleet. However, we could see a mix of freezing rain & sleet south of the parkways. Preciptitation totals will be very SIGNIFICANT, so it would be a good idea to start preparing and taking necessary actions, rather be prepared than not be prepared.

 

After the first wave, we should be able to see a break Monday late morning/early afternoon before the second & stronger wave arrives for Monday night into Tuesday morning. Of course, different models (GFS, Canadian, European) are varying between snow/sleet & sleet/freezing rain. The area that all of these models are in agreeance with are for the Eastern/Southeastern parts of the state. Locally, we should be right there in the mix, still uncertain of accumulation totals but they are showing significant as mentioned above. 

 

Now after those 2 waves pass through (by Tuesday morning), there is another system that should arrive by Wednesday evening into Thursday. Uncertainty remains for this system since we are still a way out, but models and data will continued to be monitored, to provide you with the updates they show. 

 

Screenshots of those model images will also be shared to show you what to expect around what timeframe. 

 

Below is a look at the extended forecast from today into Tuesday night, don’t want to share too far out with these waves as there will more than likely be a change in high temperatures compared to what is currently showing: 

 

Today – Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the mid to upper 30s 

Tonight – 20% Rain; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the upper 20s. 

 

Saturday – 30% Freezing Rain/Rain; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the mid 30s. 

Saturday Night – Cloudy; Lows in the low to mid 20s. 

 

Sunday – 20% Sleet; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the low 30s.  

Sunday Night – 60% Freezing Rain/Sleet; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid teens. 

 

Monday – 60% AM Sleet/Freezing Rain > Snow/Freezing Rain; Cloudy; Highs in the mid 20s. 

Monday Night – 80% Snow Showers/Freezing Rain > All Snow; Lows in the mid to upper teens. 

 

Tuesday – 20% Snow; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the upper 20s. 

Tuesday Night – Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid to upper teens. 

 

Again, this forecast is subject to change, & we will provide those latest changes when possible.  

 

On another note, if you have a new business or an existing business and would like to sponsor these weather blogs, let us know! A great thing with these blogs is that they reach thousands & thousands of people, which in return would mean those people would see your business as well. Whether its on our website, on-air mentions, & on social media. We will get you set up, just send us an email and let us know at thebuck@chasingthebuck.com.

 

We are working on more great things to expand our weather updates, to become live more and even take live looks at local areas.

Monday February 8, 2021 - WINTER STORM WATCH

A Winter Storm Watch has been issued to take effect from late Tuesday night through Thursday.

 

A lot of people are questioning if this evening will be like 2009 & per NWS, this event will NOT be like the 2009 event or even the 2003 event that occurred in Lexington.

 

•Potential for ice accumulation ranges from 0.10 up to 0.75, with locally higher amounts possible. Snow & sleet accumulations of 1-2” will be possible North of I-64.

 

•TIMING: Waves of wintry precipitation will be possible late Tuesday – Thursday mainly across Southern Indiana & Central Kentucky. Area of freezing rain is likely, with SNOW to the NORTH and RAIN to the SOUTH. Majority of the chance of our precipitation locally will be from Wednesday night into Thursday.

 

•LOCAL AMOUNTS –

Ice amounts for the local area here in Casey, Taylor, & Lincoln (as of now) are forecasted at 0.10 up to 0.25, with locally higher amounts possible.

 

Counties such as Russell, Adair, & Pulaski are forecasted at showing ice accumulations of 0.01 to 0.10.

 

Counties north of our local area including Boyle, Washington, Jessamine, Fayette, & Hardin are forecasted at showing ice accumulations between 0.25 to 0.50.

 

If this line shifts South, there will be a sharp gradient, meaning that counties such as Green, Taylor, Casey, & Lincoln counties could see the northern parts receiving more accumulations (snow & ice) compared to the southern parts of the county (where they would not receive much accumulation).

 

•THREATS:

Snow Accumulations – Medium

Ice Accumulations – High

Winter Storm Timing – Medium/High

Winter Storm Impacts – High

 

•WHERE: As of right now, the main threat of counties to receive more ice will be north of Taylor & Casey counties. This line could be moved south depending on the trends of data/models. Bluegrass Parkway & North of I-64 is currently in the main line of this event.

 

•Possibility of Winter Storm Warning or even an Ice Storm Warning could be issued for parts of the state, more than likely will include Northern Kentucky, North Central Kentucky, & Central Kentucky.

 

•Just an informational fact, ¼” or more of ice, can damage trees & power lines.

 

•Another conference call will be held tomorrow, until then we will keep an eye on data & models for anymore updates in regards to this system pushing South as mentioned above.

 

***This forecast has been constantly changing and more than likely will continue to do so, I will keep a close eye on these models and the data trends & update as needed.

Sunday February 7, 2021

Good Sunday evening, I hope everyone is having a great weekend as it winds down. Just wanted to share another weather update with you guys because compared to my last blog, models & data has changed so I want to keep you all up to date with the latest weather trends and forecasts as we go into this new week,

 

First things first, the big weather story for this week is about ice. The latest data and model trends are now leaning towards no major ice accumulations locally here in South Central KY as they were last week. We do still have just a slight chance of seeing around 1/10" of ice depending how this system comes through this week, Now folks to our North in the Ohio River Valley vicinity could definitely see ice headed their way. More than likely for our local area, any precipitation that we see from mid week til Thursday will be rain, it will just be too warm for anything else.

 

The second weather story I am watching for the latter part of the week into this coming weekend will be below freezing temperatures - high temperatures & low temperatures both.

 

We will "enjoy" high temperatures this week ranging from the low to upper 40s, almost at 50 a few days then by Friday, those high temperatures will top in the low to mid 30s. Low temperatures this week will range from low to mid 30s through Wednesday night, by Thursday night lows will be in the mid 20s.

 

Let's take an extended and detailed look at your forecast for this week even into your week so you can see the trend I am talking about.:

 

Tonight - Mostly Clear; Lows in the low 20s.

 

Monday - Mostly Sunny; Highs in the upper 40s.

Monday Night - 20% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 30s.

 

Tuesday - Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the upper 40s.

Tuesday Night - 30% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 30s.

 

Wednesday - 50% Showers; Cloudy; Highs in the upper 40s.

Wednesday Night - 80% Showers; Cloudy; Lows in the mid 30s

 

Thursday - 90% Showers; Cloudy; Highs in the upper 30s to low 40s

Thursday Night - 50% Showers (possible freezing rain); Cloudy; Lows in the mid 20s.

 

Friday - AM Chance of possible freezing rain; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the mid 30s

Friday Night - Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid teens.

 

Saturday - 20% Snow showers/freezing rain; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the low 30s.

Saturday Night - 20% Snow showers/freezing rain; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low teens.

 

Sunday - Partly Sunny; Highs in the mid to upper 20s

 

So as you can see by the latter part of the week, we will be dealing with colder weather which will last numerous days in a row for high temps and low temps.

 

This forecast continues to change daily and I will continue to keep an eye on model and data trends as well as the forecast and update with any major changes that we can expect.

 

PLEASE do not believe the hype of those who are sharing/telling that this is going to be a major ice storm or that there are multiple inches of snow forecasted because that is not true!

 

I do my best to pass on the most reliable weather information that I can not only here but on-air & also to our Facebook page and even my personal Facebook page.

 

I will update you guys as needed!

Friday February 5, 2021

Good Friday evening everybody! Let’s get straight to the topic of this blog which is about the good ole Kentucky weather.

 

So short term it looks to be a calm weekend. As the saying goes “calm before the storm”. I think that is a good saying to use for what I am watching to unfold for our next week’s forecast.

 

Weekend looks calm for the most part but as we head into next week, especially Tuesday evening, I am keeping an eye on a system that will push through and deliver some arctic air to the region & we even have the chance to see a threat of freezing rain causing some icing issues. I will be watching models & forecast closely as these will be changing more frequently until this time comes. With multiple changes with the forecasts, that means things aren’t 100% set in stone when it comes to who will get what and where and how much. If there are major changes, I will be sure to post a blog to keep you guys updated.

 

I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself when it comes to the weather systems especially 6-7 days out due to all the data changing, but I will give you a heads up we could possibly continue to see this colder weather last & even have the chance of seeing some accumulating snowfall. How much? I have no idea as of right now but once data starts coming together better, I will give you another heads up.

 

Let’s go ahead and take a look at your weekend forecast & your extended forecast into the latter part of next week as well below:

 

Tonight – Increasing clouds; Lows in the upper 20s.

 

Saturday – Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the mid-40s.

Saturday Night – Mostly Cloudy; 50% Rain > Rain/Snow > Snow; Lows in the mid to upper 20s.

 

Sunday – AM Clouds > Afternoon Sunshine; Highs in the upper 30s.

Sunday Night – Partly Cloudy; Lows in the low 20s.

 

Monday – Mostly Sunny; Highs in the mid to upper 40s.

Monday Night – 30% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid-30s.

 

Tuesday – 40% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the low to mid 40s.

Tuesday Night – 30% Rain/Snow; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low to mid 20s.

 

Wednesday – Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the low to mid 30s.

Wednesday Night – Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the upper teens to low 20s.

 

Thursday – 20% Snow showers; Mostly Cloudy; Highs around 30.

Thursday Night – 30% Snow Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low teens.

 

Friday – 20% Snow showers; Partly Sunny; Highs in the low 20s.

 

I usually don’t share the extended forecast as far out as I have done, but I just want you guys to see how cold it will be for the highs come Friday. **As always the forecast is subject to change and when it does I will do my best to update you all here & on-air on 98.7.**

 

That’s all for now, I hope you guys have a great weekend!

UPDATE: Tuesday January 26, 2021

Good evening, I know it is late (11:45 PM) but just wanted to give a quick update in regards to our weather for tomorrow.

 

Per my prior blog from earlier today, our local area will be under a Winter Weather Advisory now effective at 3 PM EST, which is an hour earlier than when it was first issued to take effect at 4 PM EST Wednesday.

 

A Winter Weather Advisory means that wintry weather is expected. Be sure to exercise caution as slick and hazardous conditions are possible for development.

 

As models update, it looks like there could also be a change in forecasted sno accumulations as well. Locally we could get up to a possible 1/2", for other areas that was in that same forecasted snow total, they could possibly see up to 1".

 

I will continue to monitor model & update as needed tomorrow. As for this Tuesday, I am calling it a night but be sure to keep an eye out for a new blog tomorrow & we will have live weather coverage on-air at 98.7, online at chasinthebuck.com or via the Simple Radio app that you can download for your mobile device!

SUNDAY JANUARY 24, 2021

Good Sunday evening, I hope you have had and are continuing to have a great weekend. I do have some weather information to pass along to you to keep you on top of what we will be seeing over the next 24 hours for our local area, so let’s get started.

 

Some parts of the local area have seen some rain today, nothing major though. As your evening and night goes on into tomorrow, rain chances will be at 100% and rain totals will average any where between 1” to 2”. These will be widespread rain showers that we will be seeing, some of which could be heavy at times therefore causing some localized flash flooding. The SPC has already placed parts of our local area back Westward, under a MARGINAL (see graphic below to category definition) risk for thunderstorms as well. Yes, I said thunderstorms, here in January. It’s Kentucky what do you expect?

 

 

     *******************************************************************************************************

 

SPC Products

 

 

As the warm front pushes through, that means moderate to occasional heavy rain will move northward and into South Central Kentucky later on tonight. Monday will be our all-day rain event, as I stated above, with rain totals averaging from 1-2”. Current models are showing that the heaviest rain showers could drop around 1 inch of rain in 3 hours. In regards to Flash Flood Watches/Warnings being issued, that amount of rain still falls short of the guidance that is needed to have those issued. We cannot rule out having a Flash Flood Watch issued as models update & as this system pushes through tomorrow.

 

May be an image of map, sky and text that says 'Rainfall Forecast Tonight Monday Night Weather Forecast Office Louisville KY Issued Jan 24, 2021 3:05 PM EST 1151 Covington 1-1.5" Madison 1-1.5" asper Louisville Owensboro Morehead Elizabethtown Paducah Campbelisville Jackson 1.5-2" 1.5-2" Bowling Gréen Hopkinsville London Albany Precipitation NWSLouisville weather.gov/lmk'

 

Now when it comes to temperatures for your Monday afternoon, you may be pleasantly surprised as we will have high temperatures around the upper 50s - lower 60s for most of the area. Monday night low temperatures will be around 40 degrees with the continued rain chance, just decreased.

 

Extended Forecast:

 

Monday night rain chances decrease and rain will push out of the area. By Tuesday we will see clear & sunny skies with high temperatures in the upper 50s along with a slight breeze (7-10 mph). Our next rain chance will be on Wednesday currently showing a 40% with Partly Sunny skies, highs in the upper 40s-50 degrees. Rain chances will continue into Wednesday night, a slight increase in the chance, low temperatures will have a drop into the mid 20s. By the weekend, we could see a warm up with high temperatures back in the 50 degree range.

 

I will post another blog tomorrow as time allows and also if there are any flooding issues within our local area.

UPDATE: Friday January 15, 2021

3:45 PM Weather Update:

 

Here is the latest update in regards to our wintry weather for tonight into tomorrow morning:

 

Note: A Winter Weather Advisory remains to take effect at 9 PM tonight and last through tomorrow at 1 PM.

 

Some areas have already started to see some rain/snow this afternoon, even though it was short lived. As your evening and night goes on we can’t rule out experiencing some thundersnow (basically hearing some thunder along with the snow showers). Chances are low but at the same time its still a possibility to occur.

 

Overnight & into the early morning hours will be the best chance of seeing precipitation on the ground. Traffic could be impacted during this time so be sure to use caution if having to travel, even though surface temperatures will be fairly warm considering.

 

As Saturday goes on, snow showers will be intermittent & highs will only be around the upper 30s. From the NWS forecast discussion, they state that overall snow amounts could exceed an inch by Monday morning for several locations across the state, a lot of the snow though will occur in spurts and likely melt down some before the next wave of snow showers move in.

 

The Easter Bluegrass (I-75 corridor area), has the best potential to see accumulating snow and potential impacts, and can’t rule out future advisories being issued.

 

Drier weather will return for the most part come next week. But we will have the chance of seeing rain & possibly some snow flurries by end of week next week.

 

I’ll update again if there are any major changes.

***New Weather Blog has been posted with updates as of 3:45 PM***Check it out***

 

Good Friday afternoon, as promised here is an updated blog since the forecast has changed for our area since yesterday’s blog that was posted. 

 

Let’s start off by talking about what NWS is sharing in regards to our local area and snow chances & accumulation.  

 

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from 9 PM EST tonight through 1 PM tomorrow afternoon for our local area including the counties of Adair, Boyle, Casey, Green, Lincoln, Marion, Russell, & Taylor. For this advisory, snow is expected & some snow accumulations up to 1” are possible, with some isolated areas seeing a possible accumulation of up to 2”. 

 

Today – Tonight: 

Continuing to look at the weather for the above mentioned counties, for this evening into the overnight hours, scattered/intense snow showers will continue to develop resulting in light accumulations. Even though surface temperatures are above freezing, we can’t rule out seeing a few slick spots. The development of snow showers will continue into the early hours tomorrow morning with accumulations resulting anywhere from a dusting up to 1”, & a possible 2” in isolated areas. 

 

Saturday into next week: 

As we move into the weekend, we can expect additional periodic snow showers late Saturday afternoon into Sunday night. Additional light snow accumulations can’t be ruled out, as well as negative travel impacts since surface temperatures will be on the decline & cause additional slick spots. 

 

This evening into the weekend: 

For our counties of Pulaski, McCreary, & Wayne, as of this afternoon there is no advisory that has been issued to be in effect. Showers will develop overnight tonight with light accumulations possible by sunrise tomorrow morning. For the remainder of the weekend, we can’t rule out seeing scattered snow showers which could lead to additional light accumulations. 

 

In regards to timing, you can see the image below that was issued by NWS Louisville from earlier this morning. I will continue to monitor updated forecast discussions, hazard weather outlooks, & special weather statements so I can continue to pass along the most up to date weather information to you here & on air this afternoon on 98.7. 

 

 

While I’m at it, here is an updated look at your short term forecast for the rest of the afternoon into Sunday: 

 

This Afternoon – 30% Rain/Snow Showers; Increasing Clouds; Breezy at times (wind gusts up to 24 mph); Highs in the low 40s. 

Tonight – 50% Rain/Snow Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows around 30; Snow accumulations of a dusting up to a possible 1” expected. 

 

Saturday – 50% Snow Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Breezy at times (wind gusts up to 21 mph); Highs in the upper 30s. New snow accumulation of less than 1” possible. 

Saturday Night – 20% Rain/Snow Showers; Cloudy; Lows around 30. 

 

Sunday – 30% Rain/Snow Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the upper 30s. 

 

The forecast & weather information in this blog is up to date as of 11:25 AM this Friday afternoon, 1/15/2021. 

 

I will continue to monitor & post updates as needed as the forecast changes.

Thursday January 14, 2021

It has been a beautiful & warmer day across the local area, so I hope everyone was able to enjoy that because high temperatures will be on the decline & we also have the chance of seeing snow showers as we head into the weekend.


Starting off, a cold front will be moving across the state within the next 24 hours. A narrow corridor of light precipitation will develop & push East of the I-75 corridor in those early hours tomorrow morning. With having highs today in the low 50s, by Saturday we will have highs in the mid to upper 30s. Also within that time, we will have a chance of seeing some additional rain & snow showers.

 

Any snow that should develop tomorrw should be short-lived & shouldn't impact anything due to warm ground temperatures. Snow that develops late tomorrow afternoon for part of the state will be West of I-65.


For tonight, we do have a 70% chance of precipitation of which will be rain & that will occurr in the early morning hours for tomorrow. Below is a look at the detailed/extended forecast:


Tonight - 70% Rain; Mostly Cloudy; Breezy, wind gusts up to 20 mph; Lows in the low 30s.


Friday - 20% Rain/Snow Showers; Mostly Sunny; Highs in the low 40s.
Friday Night - 40% Snow Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the upper 20s.

Sunday - 30% Snow Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the upper 30s.
Sunday Night -20% Snow Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 20s.


MLK Day - Monday - Partly Sunny; Highs in the upper 30s.
Monday Night - Partly Cloudy; Lows in the upper 20s.


Tuesday - Mostly Sunny; Highs in the mid 40s.
Tuesday Night -40% Rain/Snow Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low 30s.


If there are any major changes with our snow chances or anything with the forecast, I will be sure to update with another blog. So far there are no snow accumulations forecasted.

Thursday December 24, 2020

Merry Christmas Eve! Just a quick update with some images attached that I have received from NWS this morning including information about a Winter Weather Advisory that will be in effect from 11 AM today through 10 AM tomorrow morning. Check it out below:

 

***Winter Weather Advisory***

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect for the local area from 11:00 AM today until 9:00 AM tomorrow morning. Expect anywhere from a dusting up to 1" of snow with a light glazing of ice during this time. Travel may become impacted later on tonight. Use caution if traveling.

 

 

 

***Information from NWS***

An arctic blast will bring a mix of wintry weather to the region this morning through Christmas Day. The first impact could be a few slick spots this morning in any areas where the wind hasn't been able to dry off roadways. Also, there is a small signal for a band of freezing rain to develop somewhere east of the I-65 corridor later this morning.

 

There's a better chance for some minor snow accumulations this afternoon and early evening, again mainly east of I-65. By this evening, temperatures will crash into the lower to mid 20s...causing any remaining wet roadways to freeze. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from late this morning through Christmas mid morning, both for that snow potential as well as for the potential of black ice.

 

The other concern will be wind combined with those colder temperatures. Wind chills will drop into the teens this afternoon and then into the single digits late tonight and into most of Christmas Day.

 

 

 

***Forecast Outlook***

Below is your forecast over the Christmas Holiday into the weekend:

 

 

If there are any other MAJOR changes, I will be sure to make a new blog & pass that information on. I will also pass it along on-air on 98.7 & also to our Facebook page if you follow us on there at Classic Country 98.7 The Buck!

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe, blessed, & Merry Christmas!

Wednesday December 23, 2020 - Christmas Eve/Christmas Forecast

Good Christmas Eve's Eve folks! I hope your day is going well. I just wanted to make an updated blog today to reflect a couple of changes for different parts of the local area (so be sure to locate your area on these updates). All information is valid as of 4 PM this afternoon.

 

***This Evening / Wind Advisory***

  • First, it looks like those gusty winds will continue throughout the evening hours for most of the local region. So far winds have been staying below the criteria for a Wind Advisory to be issued, but NWS has just issued a Wind Advisory to be in effect from 9 PM tonight through 4 AM tomorrow morning.
  • These winds will strengthen as the front moves in tonight. Winds will be moving West to East through the area.
  • A Wind Advisory means that wind gusts of over 40 mph are expected. If you are having to travel on the interstates or parkways in a high profile vehicle, be sure to use extreme caution as these winds can make travel hazardous.

 

***Forecast Discussion for Adair, Boyle, Casey, Taylor, Russell, counties***

  • For the counties more centralized in the South Central area, rain has already developed as we head into your evening.
  • As the evening goes on, showers will continue to move into the area as this front works its way through. As the transition from rain to snow occurs, we do have the chance of seeing some freezing rain in the mix.
  • The transition of snow will be more for Thursday afternoon.
  • Per NWS, given the timing & low confidence of potential impacts, any winter weather advisory or other headlines, are being held off on being issued.
  • Other than widespread snow showers, we will continue to see scattered flurries throughout the day Thursday & into Christmas morning/afternoon.

 

***Winter Weather Advisory - Pulaski & counties North, East, & South***

  • The National Weather Service (NWS), has issued a Winter Weather Advisory currently for only part of the local area which includes the counties of Fleming, Montgomery, Bath, Rowan, Estill, Powell, Menifee, Rockcastle, Jackson, Pulaski, Laurel, Wayne, McCreary, & Whitley.
  • This advisory will take effect from 11 AM Thursday & last through 7 AM Friday. The counties listed above are currently in the 1-3" forecasted snow totals area.
  • Temperatures will drop below freezing very quickly Thursday afternoon & evening, which will result in any wet surface freezing.
  • Travel is forecasted to be difficult within the mentioned vicinity Thursday evening into early Friday morning.

 

***Snowfall Amounts***

  • Snowfall amounts remain uncertain, locally it is currently ranging from a dusting up to 1".
  • Generally speaking across the state, 1-2" of snow is possible in areas with the highest potential East of I-75. Areas West around the I-65 corridor, are likely to see less than 1".

 

***Temperatures***

  • Temperatures will drop below freezing overnight on Thursday into Friday morning across the area & remain below freezing into your Christmas Day on Friday.
  • Factoring in the wind chill for Thursday night, it will feel more like the single digits as well. Use caution as any wet surface will freeze over with these types of temperatures.
  • We will see temperatures warm back up on Saturday with highs around 40.

 

***Detailed/Extended Forecast***

Tonight - 100% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Breezy with wind gusts up to 33 mph; Lows in the mid 30s.


Christmas Eve - 90% Rain/Snow; Breezy with wind gusts up to 21 mph; Temps will fall around the mid 20s; Little to no ice accumulation expected; New snow accumulation of less than 1" is possible.

Thursday Night - 30% Snow Showers/Flurries; Cloudy; Breezy with wind gusts up to 22 mph; Lows in the mid teens with wind chill values at 6 degrees.

 

Christmas - Scattered flurries; Partly Sunny; Highs in the low 20s with wind chill values at 4 degrees.
Friday Night - Mostly Clear; Lows in the mid teens.

 

Saturday - Sunny; Highs around 40.
Saturday Night - Mostly Clear; Lows in the mid 20s.

 

Sunday - Mostly Sunny; Highs around 50.
Sunday Night - 30% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low to mid 30s.

 

Monday - 20% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the mid 40s.
Monday Night - Partly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 20s.

 

Tuesday - Mostly Sunny; Highs in the low 40s.
Tuesday Night - Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the upper 20s.

 

I know this has been a bit lengthy compared to the other blogs I share, I just want to be sure you all have a good understanding of what is forecasted. As always the forecast is subject to change.

 

Thanks for reading & sharing! I will update if there are any major changes.

Tuesday December 22, 2020

Good Tuesday evening ya'll, a little bit later than usual on this blog but let's jump right into it and have a talk about the snow chances for Christmas Eve into Christmas for our local area.

 

***Models & Model Data***

First things first though, many of you have social media & may even be sharing the model graphics around in regards to snow accumulations. Please keep in mind that there are multiple models that are used, a few examples are GFS, NAM, & EURO models.

 

The data with each of these 3 are very different, for example, the GFS model shows a total snow amount of around 4" for our local area, the NAM model goes as far as to reflect snow totals around 5-6" for the local area, but the most realistic of these models is the EURO model which reflects snow totals of less than an inch in accumulation. In all actuality, we all know that snow is a little harder to forecast compared to storms, especially with precipitation totals.

 

New snow accumulations are expected to be anywhere from a dusting up to less than 1/2" possible, so all you snow lovers don't get your hopes too high unless your continuously doing your magical snow dance.

 

***Precipitation Timing***

As of this evening, we are forecasted around 70% of seeing some rain & snow showers for Christmas Eve. Let's take a look at the timing as this arctic front pushes through:

 

  • On Wednesday evening & into the overnight hours, we will see rain move into the area.
  • Rain will then transition to snow early Thursday morning & will continue throughout your Thursday afternoon.
  • The widespread snow showers will diminish overnight Thursday into early Friday morning, but we will see some off and on flurries through out Friday afternoon.

 

***Temperature Change On The Way***

Now since I have mentioned the timing of the rain & snow, let's talk below about the change in temperatures (both high temps & low temps), because there will be quiet a bit of change from tomorrow into Friday.

 

It will be a very mild day for tomorrow, even with the gusty winds, tomorrows high temperatures will hit around 60 degrees, so if you are able to get out and enjoy that be sure to do so. Tomorrow night low temps will range in the upper 30s.

 

For Christmas Eve on Thursday, high temps will drop around 20 degrees compared to tomorrow, Thursdays highs will be around 40. Low temps will take a dramatic dip into the low to mid TEENS! So if you haven't broken out the warm fuzzy blankets or turned the heat on, this will be the time to do so.

 

On Christmas Day, we will be lucky to see upper 20s for the high temperatures. Lows for Christmas will be back into the teens.

 

***Detailed/Extended Forecast***

Let's go ahead & take a more detailed look at the forecase from tonight into the weekend (forecast is as of this evening):

 

Tonight - Mostly Clear; Lows in the low to mid 30s.

 

Wednesday - Increasing Clouds; Breezy with wind gusts up to 34 mph; 10% chance of scattered sprinkles in the evening; Highs around 60.

Wednesday Night - 100% Showers; Cloudy & Breezy with wind gusts around 33 mph; Lows in the mid to upper 30s

 

Christmas Eve - 70% Rain/Snow; Mostly Cloudy; Highs around 40; New snow accumulation of less than 1/2" possible.

Thursday Night - Slight chance of fluries; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low to mid teens.

 

Christmas Day - Mostly Sunny; Few flurries; Highs in the low to mid 20s.

Friday Night - Mostly Clear & Cold; Lows in the mid teens.

 

Saturday - Sunny; Highs in the mid to upper 40s.

Saturday Night - Mostly Clear; Lows in the upper 20s.

 

As always your forecast is subject to change, especially with snow in the mix, so when it does change I will do my best to update and post a new blog.

 

If you have any questions/comments/concerns, feel free to email me at crystal@shorelinestations.com

 

Have a great rest of your evening!

Monday December 14, 2020

Good Monday evening ya'll! I hope everyone had a great weekend & was able to get out and enjoy the milder temperatures because it looks like temperatures will not surpass the 50 degree mark this week. Low temperatures this week will continue to remain in the 20s, with the highest reaching around the mid 30s.

 

We do continue to have a system move across the state & with this system, the chance for some snow will be in the forecast tomorrow night into early Wednesday morning across the area. Now being apart of the counties within the South Central part of the state, we will be considered having the "warmest" temperatures as they will be in the low to mid 30s. Because of these temperatures, these areas are more likely to see a cold rain while other areas will have a mix of rain/snow/sleet.

 

When it comes to snow accumulations, don't get your hopes up especially if you're a snow lover, because as of now accumulations are ranging from a light dusting to possibly up to 1/2" in some areas.

 

Let's go ahead and take a look at the extended forecast for this week:

 

Tonight - Partly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 20s.

 

Tuesday - Mostly Sunny; Highs in the low to mid 40s.

Tuesday Night - 60% Rain/Snow/Sleet; Mostly Cloudy; Lows around 30; Snow accumulations range from a light dusting up to possibly 1/2" in some areas.

 

Wednesday - 80% Rain; Cloudy; Highs in the low to mid 40s.

Wednesday Night - Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the upper 20s.

 

Thursday - Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the upper 30s.

Thursday Night - Partly Cloudy; Lows in the low to mid 20s.

 

Friday - Mostly Sunny; Highs in the low to mid 40s.

Friday Night - Mostly Cloudy; Lows around 30.

 

Saturday - 20% Rain; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the upper 40s, possibly around 50 degrees.

 

I appreciate everyone who takes the time out of their day to read these blogs as well as sharing them! I try to keep them short, sweet, & simple for the most part, don't want to get to technical with them unless its a needed weather situation.

 

As always the forecast is always subject to change and when it does, I will do my best to post an update here, & I will update on air at 98.7 & also on our Facebook page.

 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to reach out to me via email at crystal@shorelinestations.com & I will be more than happy to reach back out to you.

 

Have a great rest of your Monday evening & stay warm!

 

-Crystal
