We have to get ready for our next storm system that will arrive on Sunday Evening. Sunday, before 4PM, will be dry and mainly cloudy with highs around the low-mid 40s. A warm front will lift north across KY by the afternoon, and gentle lifting ahead of it will lead to the onset of precip for parts of the state by early evening. Areas along I-64 can expect a wintry mix for the start of this system after 4PM…and a switch to rain around Midnight (Nothing more than a dusting can be expected in terms of possible snow accumulations). Areas north of I-64 (especially around Covington) will have snow for the start of this system (mainly after 6PM)…and snow will last through the early hours on Monday. Expect light snow accumulations… up to 2″ possible for extreme Northern KY.
South of I-64, no wintry weather…but definitely quite a bit of rain. Periods of rain can be expected by Sunday evening for Western KY… shifting east across the rest of the state all day Monday. Rainfall estimates of 1″ – 3″ can be expected (with the highest amounts across the Central and Southern parts of the state). There could be some isolated areas that get more than 3″…and keep in mind this is all in ONE DAY. So, Flash Flooding is a big concern. Stay tuned for possible watches or advisories issued.
Tuesday morning, this system will move out…but colder air will be chasing the moisture. So, many will experience a little snow Tuesday morning…with little to no accumulations.
Midweek brings COLD temps with highs only in the upper 30s by Wednesday. Yet, the rest of the workweek will be precipitation free.
