  1. Power restored, now the fiber is out. Getting concerned about the wind now. The freezing rain earlier in the day, assured the snow would stick like glue.
  2. Just got the generator hooked up, This band over me and john is legit af.
  3. Heavy snow has returned to Corbin, just heard a tree limb snap.
  4. JKL nailed the changeover time here
  5. All snow in Corbin, some of the biggest I've ever seen
  6. Trying to change to snow in Corbin, temp up to 34
  7. Totally agree, atleast JKL has the kymesonet up here. http://www.kymesonet.org/
  8. If we all just had smartphone cameras back then... I had no idea how rare those storms would be.
  9. National Weather Service Jackson KY 500 PM EST Thu Jan 13 2022 .LONG TERM...(Saturday through Thursday) Issued at 500 PM EST THU JAN 13 2022 Lots of uncertainty remains with the well-advertised weekend system. The systems upper level and surface low track would typically favor heavy snow across our area this time of the year. However, this is not a slam dunk scenario this time due to the complex low structure, which in many solutions could lead to an above-freezing warm nose intrusion and possible downsloping off of the Great Smoky Mountains. These poorly resolved issues continued to plague the 12z NWP output. Model agreement should improve over the next 24 hours as the system, which just came ashore the Pacific Northwest, is better sampled by RAOBs and surface-based obs. The latest model suite analysis shows our system of concern over the South Central US by 12z Saturday. The 545 dam low, embedded with in a positively tilted trough extending SW from the Great Lakes, will be spinning over KS/OK while supporting a surface low situated near/over the Ark-La-Tex. Meanwhile, cold Canadian high pressure will be over the Eastern Great Lakes/Ottawa Valley. Cold northeasterly low-level flow on the periphery of this high will seep into the Ohio Valley through the day on Saturday. Simultaneously, mid-level WAA should develop ahead of the system leading to increased mid to high cloud cover. Cannot rule out a bit of light snowfall from this mid-level forcing but whether that actually reaches the ground will strongly depend upon how dry lower levels become under the shallow CAA -- some guidance suggests teens or single digit dew points filtering into the Commonwealth by Saturday evening. Heading through Saturday night and early Sunday morning, WAA will intensify ahead of the surface low as it moves into the TN valley and occludes. A new triple point low takes shape along the Gulf Coast. A warm nose attempts to push northward into Eastern Kentucky early Sunday as the original occluded low drifts into eastern TN and fills. The warm noses depth and degree of warmth is still very uncertain and just a few degrees difference would support anything from rain to freezing rain, sleet, and/or snow. The warm nose might be enhanced by the southeasterly downslope flow off of the Southern Appalachians as well. The remnant surface low and warm nose fades later in the day as low-level winds turn more easterly in response to the passage of the 850 mb low. Meanwhile, the triple point low becomes the primary surface circulation and rapidly consolidates/deepens over the Carolinas under the favorable right entrance region of a 300mb jet. As this occurs, several of the models hint at the potential for frontogenetic banding along the back size of the system, associated with a deformation zone. This deformation band, depending upon where it occurs, could be best opportunity for locations to pick up a heavy accumulating snow later Sunday afternoon and evening. Snowfall with this system should be fairly heavy and dense (low SLR) given the likelihood for a deep riming and aggregation layer below 700 mb. Needless to say, the weekend forecast remains low confidence at this time. Once the system departs early Monday, another quick-moving shortwave will bring the potential for some light precipitation later Monday -- likely in the the form of upslope snow showers and flurries on modest west to northwest CAA. Surface high pressure returns with quiet and seasonably cool weather by Tuesday. The next chance for rain and snow returns Wednesday or Thursday with a cold front and postfrontal upslope. High temperatures will be very typical of mid January with highs mainly in the 30s, except in the 40s on both Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Lows will mostly be in the 20s. The colder sheltered valleys could drop into the teens Monday night and early Tuesday morning.
