Weather Archives for 2020-12

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 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.

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.

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 & I will be more than happy to reach back out to you.


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