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.
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.

I hope you guys & gals have a great rest of your week!
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.
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!
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great rest of your evening!
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 email@example.com & I will be more than happy to reach back out to you.
Have a great rest of your Monday evening & stay warm!
Good Friday evening folks! This is a late update, it's been a busy week & day for me here.
I hope you were able to get out and enjoy those milder temperatures we were able to experience across the area today, because it looks like those high temperatures will be dropping over the weekend and into next week,
Let's take a look at the extended forecast below:
Tonight - 40% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows around 50.
Saturday - 50% Showers; Cloudy --> Mostly Sunny; Breezy > wind gusts around 32 mph; Highs in the low 60s.
Saturday Night - Mostly Cloudy; Breezy > wind gusts around 22 mph; Lows in the mid to upper 30s.
Sunday - Most Cloudy; Highs in the upper 40s.
Sunday Night - 50% Rain > Rain/Snow; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low to mid 30s.
Monday - A SLIGHT chance of AM flurries; Mostly Sunny; Highs in the mid 40s.

Tuesday Night - 30% Rain > Rain/Snow; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low 30s.
Wednesday - 30% Rain/Snow; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the low - mid 40s.
Looks about like typical December weather for the upcoming week. No snow accumulations are expected, so all of you snow lovers out there, don't get your hopes up, even though we all know how fast Kentucky weather can change.
I am back searching for local photos to be used on our forecast graphics, if you have one or two or five you would like to submit, definitely do so & remember the following please:
-Be sure to include location & name of photographer
-No individuals in the photos.
-Landscape photos (more wide than tall), work best!

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your Friday evening & I hope you have a great weekend!
A little over a month and I am back with another weather blog for all you guys & gals out there. It has definitely been a busy time since my last blog. So with that being said, let's get ya'll up to date with what is going on with the weather world, especially for your Thanksgiving Day holiday coming up!
As of 4:30 PM today, a Wind Advisory remains in effect for the listening area until 5:00 PM. Wind gusts today have been in excess of around 30 mph, or even higher in some places. We still have the chance of seeing additional showers and maybe even a thunderstorm tonight, even though locally we just experienced the rain this afternoon.
Fast forward to Sunday into Monday, it looks like the "S" word has finally made it's way into the forecast for this season. That's right, SNOW, has made it into the forecast. Nothing major is expected, but for some who are snow lovers, they are definitely enjoying seeing that in the forecast.
Tonight - 70% Rain/Possible Storm; Mostly Cloudy; Lows around the mid-40s.
Thanksgiving Day Thursday - A slight chance of morning sprinkles; Mostly Cloudy; Highs near the mid-50s.
Thursday Night - Mostly Cloudy; Lows around 40.

Tuesday Night - 20% Snow showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low-mid 20s.
As always, the forecast is subject to change so be sure to monitor your latest local forecast.
So we will go from some fairly comfortable temperatures to a dip below freezing into the 20s by Monday Night and also Tuesday Night.
I will be keeping an eye on the models the closer to time this forecast approaches for our snow chances, so I can share out a more accurate forecast.
Thanks again for sticking with me through these blogs & I hope you continue to find these helpful & informative.
If there are any questions you may have or even any recommendations you would like to see within these blogs, feel free to email me at email@example.com.

Hurricane Delta looks to make landfall tomorrow evening as it will affect parts of Texas, Louisiana, & Mississippi. After making landfall, Delta will continue to move across parts of the South & will enter the Western/Southwestern part of the Bluegrass late Saturday night into Sunday morning. This system looks to bring chances of showers and possible storms throughout your weekend.
Let's take a look at your forecast to end the week and take you into your weekend:
Tonight - Mostly cloudy; Lows in the mid 50s

Friday Night - Cloudy, 60% Showers; Lows in the low 60s; Rain totals could average from 1/10" to 1/4".

**Forecast is subject to change, the above forecast is as of 9/24/2020 at 3:00 PM**
Now as I mentioned before the forecast, I am looking for local photos! Whether you are located in Casey, Lincoln, Boyle, Adair, Taylor, Green, Russell, Pulaski, or any part of South Central/Southern Kentucky, I want you to send me your photos!
So what I am looking for are themed photos. Each week I will share a new theme of photo I am looking for here within my blog. If you have a photo you would like to submit, then email it at email@example.com.
The purpose of getting local photos is because I would love to use them as our forecast background! We share these forecasts each and every morning on our Facebook page & I feel like it would be more personable to our listeners & followers.
So this weeks theme of photos is a choice. I am looking for either a rainy day photograph, OR a fall day photo. Please keep in mind that I want LOCAL photos, nothing searched for and found on the internet. I prefer 1-2 photo submissions per person.
I will need the following information:
-Location of where photo was taken (City/County format or you can give your road name along with the city/county)
-Date photo was taken
I will give credit on our forecast graphics, therefore why the above listed information is very important to be submitted.
I can't wait to see all these awesome photos!
Good Monday evening! It has been awhile since my last blog & I apologize for that! A lot has happened in the last couple of weeks in my hometown, including another flooding event, you can see a couple of photos below.
Last Sunday, flooding took over numerous parts of Casey County, including having numerous swift water rescues which was assisted by neighboring rescue teams (thank you to all who helped!). Thanks to all of our law enforcement, dispatchers, county road crews, state road crews, electric crews, fire fighters, & everyone else who helped making sure folks were safe before, during, & after the flooding. So thankful it wasn't worse than what it was.

Since then, we have dealt with a cold front that pushed in behind the rain therefore making it feel more like Fall (which I'm personally enjoying). Our high temperatures across the area averaged in the upper 60s to mid 70s, while low temperatures averaged a bit cooler in the mid 40s to low 50s. It looks like Fall will continue to hang around for the rest of this week as well along with rain chances making their way back, take a look below:
Tuesday - Mostly Sunny; Highs in the low to mid 70s.
Tuesday Night - Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low 50s.
Wednesday - Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the mid 70s.
Wednesday Night - 20% Showers, Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 50s.
Thursday - 30% Showers (After 1-2 PM), Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the mid 70s.
Thursday Night - 40% Showers/possible storm, Mostly Cloudy; Lows i the mid to upper 50s.
Friday - 30% Showers, Partly Sunny; Highs in the mid 70s.
Friday Night - 30% Showers, Partly Cloudy; Lows warming up to the low 60s.
Saturday - 40% Showers, Partly Sunny; Highs in the upper 70s, around 80 in some places.
Saturday Night - 40% Showers, Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low 60s.
So nothing to dramatic in regards to the change in weather from now until the weekend. Remember the forecast is always subject to change & when it does, I will pass along the most up to date weather information.
Don't forget I am still adding to my list of WEATHER FOLKLORE tales, so if you have some you want to share to be in my blog, you can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great rest of the week!
It's been a beautiful week so far across The Buck listening area. Labor Day weekend even had some beautiful weather as well.
I hope everyone has been well since my last blog which was last month! Things have been busy and the weather world has been calm.
Taking a look at the forecast for our local area for the remainder of the week into the beginning of next week, looks to remain calm. We will see the chance for showers & storms this weekend though.
Tonight - Mostly Clear; Lows in the mid 60s.
Thursday - Patchy morning fog to start off with then by afternoon it will be sunny; Highs around the upper 80s.
Thursday Night - Mostly Clear; Lows in the mid to upper 60s.
Friday - Partly Sunny; Highs in the mid 80s.
Friday Night - Partly Cloudy; Lows in the mid to upper 60s.
Saturday - 50% Showers/Storms (Afternoon), otherwise Mostly Sunny; Highs in the mid to upper 80s.

I know in a few of my blogs I have mentioned about weather folklore. You know, those weather sayings that maybe your parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, or even great-grandparents would tell you to predict their own weather? So in this blog I would LOVE to receive some of your alls weather folklore and share in future blogs. If you have one or two or five you want to submit to me, do so my emailing me at email@example.com.
I know in the month of August, I have always heard however many fogs there are, will be how many snows we get in the winter months. I have also heard about seeing a "Sun dog" that it will rain the same time when you see that, the next day. (Ex: If you see one at 4:00 PM on a Sunday, then it's supposed to rain/weather at 4:00 PM on Monday).
I hope to have some awesome weather tales to share in my next blog. So start sending them my way!
Another late blog going up on this Thursday.
If you hadn't heard, Hurricane Laura made landfall early this morning in SouthWestern Louisiana around 1:00 AM Central time. Sustained winds of around 150 mph remained during landfall, making Hurricane Laura remain a CAT 4 hurricane.
With that being said, a lot of damage was left behind, including a damaged radar from one of the National Weather Service sites. This system continues to move Northeast, having a path straight for Kentucky & our local area.
The system is expected to enter Western KY sometime Friday afternoon & by Friday night into early Saturday morning it will arrive locally here in South-Central Kentucky.
The NWS out of Louisville has a HWO issued for our area, please see below:
Friday through Wednesday.....
Showers and storms are expected Friday into Saturday as the remnants of Hurricane Laura move through the region. 1 to 3" of rainfall with locally higher amounts will be possible through Saturday, leading to the potential for localized flooding issues. Additionally, some of the stronger storms embedded within the rain bands of Laura may be capable of severe wind gusts and isolated, brief, spin up tornadoes. The main severe threat will occur Friday evening and into the overnight hours.
Spotter Information Statement....
Spotters are encouraged to pass along any flooding and severe weather reports Friday and Saturday.
Below are some images to basically sum up everything that was talked about over a webinar/conference call held earlier this afternoon with NWS Louisville:
If there are any dramatic changes, I will definitely be posting another blog to reflect those changes. That does include having any type of Watch or Warning issued as well.
Information I used in tonights blog comes from NWS Louisville's website.
Have a great night!
Good Wednesday evening, I know this is a later than usual blog, but I wanted to update everyone on Hurricane Laura before landfall is made. As of 11:00 tonight, Hurricane Laura is a CAT 4 Hurricane and possibly headed to be a CAT 5.
To put this storm in perspective, here are words from the National Weather Service:
"Unsurvivable Storm Surge that could penetrate 40 miles inland, large destructive waves, max sustained winds currently (as of around 10:30 PM) at 150 MPH, and flooding that will potentially impact all the way to Ohio."
It looks like, as of right now, Western Kentucky is under a Moderate Risk (red) of experiencing Flash Flooding through Friday morning, and then here is South Central Kentucky extending up North, we are in the Slight Risk (yellow) of experiencing Flash Flooding. NWS Louisville forecasts that we could see a total of around 2-3" of rain this weekend, that is subject to change as well.
I will be posting another blog later tomorrow afternoon (Thursday) to give an update as Hurricane Laura will make landfall overnight down in parts of Louisiana & parts of Texas.
I hope you continue to follow these updates as this system continues to move inland.
Also keep everyone in these areas in your prayers as they have had to pack up and move away from their homes, knowing it will not be the same when they return. Also prayers for travel & safety for everyone as well.

Good Wednesday afternoon. In today's blog, I will be discussing more of Hurricane Laura down in the Gulf & the effects that will have on our weekend weather here in Kentucky.
So as of this afternoon, Hurricane Laura has been deemed a Category 4 Hurricane. This means this is a very dangerous and strong storm, as it moves inland to make landfall. As of 2:00 PM today from the NOAA National Hurricane Center, they state the following:
"Catastrophic storm surge, extreme winds, and flash flooding are all expected along the NorthWest Gulf Coast tonight." They also state "Little time remains to protect life & property." Water levels have began to rise along the coast of Louisiana. Winds of Hurricane Laura are expected to increase to 140+ mph, even possibly reaching around 190 mph in Port Arthur, TX & Lake Charles, LA.
Now you may ask, why am I talking about a hurricane that is hundreds of miles from us here in Kentucky? Well, it is pretty simple, the path of Hurricane Laura, after she makes landfall shows that the remnants will sweep all the way here in Kentucky & The Ohio Valley. See image I have attached below as it comes from the NOAA NHC website & includes key messages as well as the images of the path of Laura & the rainfall amounts:
The last few days of sunshine and warm temperatures have been amazing & I hope you have taken advantage of that because rain chances increase for us tomorrow into Saturday Night.
Tomorrow we are currently showing around a 50% chance of showers & storms with highs topping around the mid to upper 80s. Friday, rain & storm chances increase slightly to around 60% with highs in the mid to upper 80s as well. Rain chances will continue overnight into Saturday. By Saturday afternoon, rain/storm chances will be at 90% with high temps decreasing a bit to the low 80s. By Sunday rain chances will decrease dramatically down to 20% and high temps will continue to remain cooler as they hang around 80.
Locally here in South Central Kentucky, we could possibly see 2-3" of rain over the next few days.
All weather information provided above is current as of 3:40 PM EDT this afternoon. If there are any major changes with the forecast I will be sure to post a new blog.
If you have any questions be sure to let me know! I am hoping to get some weather folklore in the next blog.

Good Monday afternoon ya'll! I hope you are having a great day! It is a beautiful start to the week, sunshine & high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. Be sure to enjoy it because by Thursday/Friday, it could be a different story.
Today I want to talk about a couple of things, one of which is our end of the week forecast because if you haven't seen already, there have been 2 Tropical Storms, Marco & Laura, that are affecting parts of the Gulf. Marco has lost quite a bit of strength as that storm heads towards the Louisiana coastline this afternoon. Laura on the other hand, looks to be a Category 2 Hurricane by the time landfall is made Wednesday night into early Thursday morning. Now with that being said, the path of Laura shows that the remnants are likely to affect our end of the week forecast here in Kentucky, bringing some rain. Currently, the forecast shows around a 60% chance of showers & storms for Friday into Saturday, I will be sure to keep watching & updating if there are any major changes.
Another thing I would like to talk about are cold air funnels. Sunday afternoon, from Horse Cave to Campbellsville, there were multiple reports of funnels spotted and photographed. With the weather conditions at hand, these funnels were not your "regular" funnels. Instead these were what we like to call "cold air" funnels. Even though it can look threatening, a cold air funnel is a weak circulation that occurs in a cool air mass. It develops well above the earth's surface therefore these types are weak and rarely impact the earth's surface.
Information from the NWS:
"It is usually not necessary for the National Weather Service to issue Tornado Warnings for cold air funnels since it is so rare for them to make it all the way to the ground and become a tornado. They are also difficult to detect on radar since they are very weak. Spotter and public reports are essential when cold air funnels are in the area. The NWS will usually issue a Special Weather Statement when cold air funnels have been reported. Of course, a Tornado Warning will still be issued if it is felt that a funnel will touch down."
Below, are a few examples of cold air funnels that were photographed here in Kentucky.
The first photo was near Smiths Grove back on Oct. 25, 2008 (Jason Berry/WBKO).
The second photo was in Hillview, KY on April 17, 2003 (Mark Simpson).
The last photo was in Lexington, KY on May 5 2007 (Alan Creech via Chris Bailey at WKYT).
**All 3 photos are from the NWS website***
I hope you enjoyed this blog a little more than my previous ones. If you have questions of a certain type of weather/weather phenomenon that you want to know more about, feel free to email me and let me know! Sometime soon, I am thinking of doing a blog about some weather folklore, so if you have any old weather tales/folklore you want to share, I would love to see those!
Send me your comments/questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org!
Thanks for taking time out to read my blog! Have a great day!
Well it has been a few days since my last blog, so I figured why not share one today.
Today has had more Fall-like weather, which I'm not complaining about. It has given us a break from the higher temperatures, but that won't last long.
We don't have any Special Weather Statements (SWS) or Hazardous Weather Outlooks (HWO) issued for our local area, which is a good thing.
We can expect to see more rain chances back in the forecast from tomorrow into next week, let's take a look at the forecast as it shows as of 3:05 PM this afternoon:
Tonight - Partly Sunny; Lows around 60
Thursday - 20% Showers; Partly Sunny; Highs in the low to mid 80s;
Thursday Night - 20% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 60s;
Friday - 80% Showers/Storms; Highs around 82; Best chance of showers/storms will be around mid morning to late afternoon;
Friday Night - 80% Showers/Storms; Lows around the low to mid 60s; Best chance of showers/storms will be in the evening hours;
Saturday - 60% Showers/storms; Partly Sunny; Highs in the low 80s;
Saturday Night - 60% Showers/storms; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low to mid 60s;
Sunday - 20% Showers; Mostly Sunny; Highs in the mid 80s;
Sunday Night - Partly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 60s;
I'm still working on getting some more informational weather facts for ya'll so just be patient with me and I hope to have those included in my next couple of blogs.
As long as it isn't an active week/weekend in the weather world, then blogs will sparse.
Thank you again to all of those who have followed, shared, & listen in on 98.7.
It is Finally Friday! I hope you have had a wonderful week! I know around majority of the local area (South-Central KY), it has been an overcast day with cooler temperatures along with some scattered showers. That chance of scattered showers & storms will continue into your weekend, so if you have any outdoor plans, you may want to stay updated with the latest weather forecast.
We do have a Flash Flood Watch that remains in effect until 10 PM EDT tonight, due to the possibility of localized rainfall amount of around 2-3" being expected therefore causing flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Be sure to monitor local media for your latest forecasts and weather updates.
Let's take a look at that weekend forecast into next week:
Tonight - 40% showers/storms; Some storms could produce heavy rainfall; Lows around the upper 60s.
Saturday - 40% showers/storms; AM Fog; Cloudy gradually becoming mostly sunny; Highs around the low 80s;
Saturday Night - 40% showers/storms; Lows around the mid 60s;
Sunday - 40% showers/storms; Mostly Sunny; Highs around the mid 80s;
Sunday Night - 30% showers/storms; Partly Cloudy; Lows around the low 60s;
Monday - Sunny; Highs around the low to mid 80s;
Monday Night - Mostly Clear; Lows around the low 60s;
Tuesday - 20% showers; Sunny; Highs around the low to mid 80s;
Tuesday Night - 20% showers; Partly Cloudy; Lows around the low 60s;
**Forecast is as of 3:50 PM EDT this afternoon (Friday Aug. 14, 2020)
**Forecast is always subject to change.
There has been an update within our Saturday forecast as the shower/storm chance had been around 70-80% chance and it is not around 40%.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, if there are any MAJOR changes in the forecast I will do my best to post an updated blog.
Email me at email@example.com
Good Tuesday afternoon ya'll! I apologize for not having a blog up yesterday as promised, but I have you covered now!
Another short & sweet blog for you today, just going to take a look at the extended forecast into the weekend because it looks like rain/storm chances are back and are increasing for a couple of days, so if you have plans be sure to stay weather aware.
Basically from the HWO (Hazardous Weather Outlook), as of today, for today into tonight parts of our area could possibly see some isolated showers/storms later this afternoon. Main threats with these storms would be torrential rainfall, gusty winds & C to G (Cloud to Ground) lightning.
For tomorrow into the weekend it looks like the chance for scattered to numerous storms for the afternoon and evening, can be expected due to continued heat & humidity. Main threats with these storms will be gusty winds & heavy rainfall.
Looks like those warm temps will continue into the weekend, lets take a look at that forecast!
Today - Rest of the afternoon: Partly Sunny; Highs around 85; Can't rule out a pop up shower.

Have a great Tuesday!
Good Monday afternoon! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, & I just want to say thanks for all of you who have read and followed my blogs over the last week. The feedback has been great! If you have any feedback, see at the end for my email you can contact me at.
So far in my previous blogs, I have been able to share with you on how to better understand how the chance of precipitation is calculated. I have also been able to share a couple of definitions as well. Today I want to share something pretty basic, and that is differentiating between a WATCH and a WARNING.
Now there are multiple watches/warnings that can be issued from the NWS (National Weather Service), including: Severe Thunderstorm, Tornado, Flash Flood, Winter Storm, High Wind, Excessive Heat, and so on (you get the point).
To simply explain the difference between a watch and a warning, it's like this:
WATCH - Be prepared!
WARNING - Take Action!
For example: You have just made it home to your family from work, you hear your NOAA Weather Radio/Local media alert, and it states there is a Severe Thunderstorm Watch effective for your area. So you know you need to be prepared as the chance for a Severe Thunderstorm Warning could be likely. So you now know you definitely need to stay alert and monitor your local media/NOAA Weather Radio for additional updates. So you are BEING PREPARED!
Time goes by, and you notice its getting darker outside, winds are picking up, you can hear thunder and then all of a sudden your weather radio/local media alerts you that a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is now in effect for your area. Hopefully you already have a plan in place on what you and your family needs to do during severe weather. If you have a plan in place then you act on it, whether its finding a more substantial structure to move to (especially if you live in a mobile home), taking shelter in a more sturdier part of your home, etc. By doing so you are TAKING ACTION!
Hopefully that helps in the understanding the difference between a Watch and a Warning. Be on the lookout for my future blogs this week to share what types of alerts can be issued by the NWS, and also how they go from a watch to a warning (what indicates the severeness?).
Now lets take a look at our forecast for the first full week of August! It looks to be a better looking forecast compared to last weeks; (Forecast is as of 11:00 AM today (8/3/2020)
Today / Tonight - We will see plenty of sunshine today but we can't rule out a stray shower as there is only a 10% chance of rain. Looks like we will average in the mid to upper 80s for highs. Tonight we have a 20% chance of rain with partly cloudy skies. Tonights lows around the low 60s.
Tuesday / Tuesday Night - We will kick off Tuesday by seeing some areas of patchy morning fog. As the day goes on, rain chances increase to 40% with partly sunny skies. Highs will be around the upper 70s to low 80s. Tuesday night looks to be about the same, 30% showers, partly cloudy with lows around 60.
Wednesday / Wednesday Night - Wednesday will be the first day of this week that there is no chance of rain. We will see partly sunny skies with highs around the low to mid 80s. Wednesday night looks to be mostly clear with lows around 60.
Thursday / Thursday Night - Another day without a chance of rain, it will be beautiful as mostly sunny skies are forecasted with highs in the mid 80s. Thursday night will be clear with lows around the lower 60s.
Friday / Friday Night - To end the week on Friday, it looks like it will continue to be beautiful & warmer, as we should see sunny skies and highs around the upper 80s. Friday night an increase in clouds will make for partly cloudy skies and lows will be around the mid 60s.
Weekend weather as of today, looks to be warming up as temps on Saturday & Sunday will average in the upper 80s, possibly hitting 90. We will have the chance of showers re-enter the forecast for the weekend, currently around 20% on Saturday & 40% for Sunday. Other than that it looks to be mostly sunny.
Disclaimer: The forecast is subject to change, when it does I will be sure to update as soon as I can.
That's it for today's blog! Don't forget to email me and let me know what you would like to see in my blogs! Hopefully soon, I will be able to incorporate some local weather photos.
Thanks again & I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
