We never have days like this in winter. It's not warm, nor is it really cold. It's just clear, blue skies. This is uncommon. For as mild and snowless of a winter as this has been, it's still been cloudy. Just like every winter. The majority of days are spent under a gray blanket, whether it's wet or dry, warm or cold.
So today, mid 40's, sunny skies, a light breeze... call me crazy, but I have the window opened at work. Even if it is a chilly breeze. It feels good. Enjoy it while you can, Central Ohio. You know it won't last...
Weekend Southern Low
It's about time we get the threat of a big southern storm. Unfortunately it doesn't look like it could bring big snows, or even any snow.
A low pressure originating from southern Texas will make its way across the south tomorrow and eventually spread moisture north. The initial track until early Sunday morning seems pretty definite. It's where it goes once it reaches the mid-south.
3am NAM, Sunday morning. Dotted white is the projected path, with trough forcing the low off course
If the low were stay on its track from southern Texas to northern Alabama, you could almost bet that points from I-71 to the southeast would get a decent snowfall... possibly 3-4". However, with a trough moving in from the north and west, it's expected that the low will curve out to the Carolina's.
It's possible that even with the curving scenario that at least some of northern Kentucky could see snow. At this point it's wait and see. Models have been varying, and predictions will get much more accurate as this low forms... and WHERE it forms.
I'll update tomorrow with the latest model runs and what we should expect for Central Ohio. As of now, I'd guess at least some of us may see a dusting, but it's just too early to tell.
