Three Parts to This Weekend Winter Storm

A powerful winter storm will sweep across the eastern half of the country this weekend. The Bluegrass will get a dose a winter, but also some wet weather too. There are three parts of this storm for us – rain, a rapid drop in temperature, and snow.

Rain arrives by Saturday morning, and it will be raining for most of the day tomorrow. Some rain could be heavy at times; localized flooding concerns may come up. Arctic air rushes in during the late afternoon or early evening. Temperatures will plummet 20 to 30 degrees over the course of the night. A flash freeze will likely occur. Water on roads and sidewalks for the day’s rain will freeze. Conditions will become slick during this time.

We will also see a changeover to snow. A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect Saturday afternoon and run through the middle of Sunday morning. We are tracking the potential for one to three inches of snow through Sunday morning. The bitter cold will hang around into Monday. Expect low temperatures Monday morning to be near zero with sub-zero wind chills.
