Sunday, February 5th, 2012: Only a Few Chances For Precipitation This Week...Then Colder.Good evening everyone! In case you missed it, the Giants won. I'll leave the rest up to the sports department and stick to weather!
As far as this week is concerned, we look much more seasonable with only slim chances for precipitation. However, one weak system might bring a chance for snow and it will certainly be ushering in cooler air.
Starting off with Monday...A weak upper level disturbance will sweep through Monday afternoon bringing a chance for some isolated sprinkles.
It won't amount to much...but worth mentioning.
Tuesday will be dry, bright, and seasonable.
Our next disturbance comes into play Wednesday. This one is a bit trickier.
No doubt, the system looks pretty moisture starved, but will it be bone dry? The NAM model seems to think so.
However, the GFS is spitting out at least a little bit of precipitation...starting out Wednesday morning in extreme eastern KY and parts of northern KY.
Even around lunchtime, the GFS is showing some isolated precipitation around the state.
Finally, by Wednesday evening, the precipitation is confined to eastern KY before coming to an end.
Regardless of moisture, the models agree that COLDER air is on the way!
Looks like we will only hit around 40 degrees Wednesday afternoon...which means if anything falls from the sky, it will likely start out as snow, and possibly change over to a rain/snow mix in the afternoon. This does not appear to be a high impact event, however, slick roads will certainly be possible Wednesday night.
Looking ahead to the weekend....
Looks like some of that cold Canadian air is finally going to plunge into the Midwest!
Stay warm, folks!
