Trough in place now, Snow Monday?


I commented a few days ago on a system which could give snow to eastern KY and the Appalachians. Well this system still appears on target to impact the region.

1.  Sunday will feature cloudy skies and a nw flow. I only see the region staying the 50’s for highs with 40’s for lows.

2. Sunday night and Monday is the big question with low pressure developing along the east coast and phasing with a trough. This will actually pull the low track back to the northwest. Cold air will continue to funnel into the region. At the same a precipitation shield will move from east to west into eastern KY   for a time Monday morning. With dynamical cooling I expect lows to fall into the mid 30’s  for east KY which means snow will fall and not rain in places that see precip. This reminds of the system which gave TN and east KY a snowstorm and to the northwest it was much warmer. However with all of this being said It looks like the more substantial amounts of precip will be further north and east of our region but not by much. All regions west of Jackson, Maysville and Somerset should stay dry. Going with a chance for a passing rain shower Monday morning for most of east KY. A line from Greenup to Bell county, which includes Ashland and Pikeville has a chance to see a late April snow Monday morning mixing with rain. At a few of the ridgetops in far southeast KY may see a coating as well. Most of us remain cloudy and dry with strong NW winds Monday in the 50’s. Regions Not seeing precip will have lows around 40.
