Friday, February 17, 2012: More Numbers for this Weekend's Winter Storm
T.G.I.F! Hope it has been a great one...It was surely gorgeous outside today!
Instead of showing you every model's snowfall totals, I am going to share 3 images that I think very accurately depict what we could expect by the end of Sunday.
This map (above) shows the probability of 4 or > inches of snow. Most of eastern KY has a decent prob. at 40% and extreme eastern KY has 70%. The Bluegrass, only 10%.
The above shows the probability of 8 or > inches of snow. The probability increases in extreme eastern KY, whereas the Bluegrass has little to no probability of this scenario.
Finally, a map showing the probability of a foot or more of snow. This would be very localized in extreme eastern KY where the heaviest snow will fall for the longest period of time.
I think that fairly depicts what we can expect. Before I go, I do want to share our microcast model with the latest data...
Not to focus of the specific number so much, but WHERE the highest amounts will be.
To wrap it up...
Time frame: Sunday evening rain...Changeover to snow 12am-3am beginning the Bluegrass and continuing through late Sunday morning.
Also, this could be a wet, heavy snow so tree limbs and power lines could be damaged or down.
More updates to come!
