Western Kentucky Looking at the Possibility of Accumulating Snow This Weekend…Yay
We has such a great time this past weekend, and a big part of the reason why is because it felt so great outside. It's where we were spending most of our time.
OLD MAN WINTER IS STICKING AROUND
When it's March and temperatures soar into the 70s, spring fever takes over and whether or not you can help it, your mind (well mine did, anyway) might convince you it was going to stay this way. Or at least level off to seasonable weather. But no, your mind would be wrong. Mine certainly was.
Early March is still winter--come on, March 20th--and it SEEMS Old Man Winter is suffering from separation anxiety and just won't let go.
THE POSSIBILITY OF ACCUMULATING SNOW IN WESTERN KY
Yes, friends, we have a chance for accumulating snow during the early part of this coming weekend. No, I'm not happy about it, and NO, I can't do anything about it.
Isn't that nice? And yes, I'm doing the "glass half full" thing in noticing that western Kentucky's frozen precipitation chances are low. But they're not non-existent either.
SNOW OR NO SNOW, KENTUCKY WILL BE IN THE DEEP FREEZE
And there's still the matter of--snow or no snow--an incredibly frigid Saturday, with high temperatures expected to be in the low 30s.
When I spoke with Eyewitness News Chief Meteorologist Wayne Hart Tuesday afternoon, he said he wasn't anticipating anything like a winter storm, which is excellent news. And the National Weather Service indicates the same thing with the following:
"Light snow is possible throughout the region Friday and Friday night. It is too early to speculate about any accumulations. In addition, very cold air will overspread the region Friday night. Wind chill values will range from zero to 10 above early Saturday morning."
Well, I guess I can scratch "camping in the backyard" off my list until further notice. And it doesn't look like that snowman will get built.
EXTREME KENTUCKY WEATHER HISTORY FOR THIS WEEK IN MARCH
And we can certainly be thankful history isn't repeating itself--this week is the anniversary of two different, but huge, storm systems that swept through the tri-state in 1994 and 2009.
Man, 1994 was a beast, wasn't it? We also got dumped on in JANUARY of that year, as well.
But this weekend won't look like that. And this SNOW may not even come to fruition. But the deep dive into serious winter temperatures seems like a go. So I'm going to stay inside and veg out on college basketball tournaments.
I'll rejoin the world on Sunday.
