updated forecast


– the trend in the models today has been for a wetter solution. However as of the 12z runs I still have a few questions/concerns that could adjust my expected totals.

question 1:

how far north does the 540 line get? some of the 12z models have trended this north into South Central Kentucky.

12z nam

if the 540 line gets north of your place there is a chance that some sleet could mix in.

question 2: how much of the deep thunderstorm convection makes it north?

the 00z gfs really brought it north into south central ky while the 12z nam and gfs are in more agreement a little further south. If this deep convection makes it the southern part of the state totals of a foot can be realized. the other part to this question is that the snow may struggle to make north friday afternoon due to a dryer airmass in place across the north which may cause some virga.

question 3:  secondary upper level disturbance may still enhance snow Saturday morning overall I like the nam’s view of this feature which keeps snow going into Saturday.
