Update on Weekend Snow Potential

Scenario 1: Should an area of low pressure track further south and east and along the Appalachian mountain chain, we stand a better chance of some minor snow accumulation Sunday night into Monday morning.

Scenario 2: However, if the low tracks further north and west, this would draw in a little more warm air which could put us on the fence between rain and snow which would cut down on snow totals.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Flurries will end with gradual clearing. Very cold.
6am: Partly Cloudy 25°
8am: Partly Cloudy 27°
10am: Mostly Sunny 32°

STILL COLD FRIDAY:
More abundant sunshine returns today but we remain under the influence of Arctic high pressure. As a result, we’ll stay very cold once again with highs only reaching the upper 30s. It will be a frigid Friday night for high school football playoff games! Lows will plunge into the upper teens for many but winds will be lighter.

WEEKEND WEATHER MAKERS:
The chill lingers through the weekend, which will make for a tricky forecast with a pair of systems expected to affect our area. The first one is a weak front passing through late Saturday night. This could bring us a quick round of very light rain or snow flurries early Sunday morning. Then, a more potent system passing through the Deep South late Sunday will send moisture northward into our area. Depending on the temperature, we could see rain or a mixed bag of precip changing over to snow sometime Sunday night into Monday morning. Some snow accumulation is possible, although that is highly dependent on the future track of this system. The same can be said for potential travel impacts Sunday night into Monday morning. Stay connected to WBKO and wbko.com as we monitor the wintry weather potential for the weekend.

STILL COLD INTO NEXT WEEK:
Temperatures will remain unseasonably cold through next Wednesday! Highs will only top out in the 30s Monday and Tuesday before a warming trend kicks in Wednesday into Thursday.
