THE WEATHER DISCO:

A MAJOR WINTER STORM IN PLAY FOR THIS WEEK…EARLY TO MID WEEK…WITH A VARIETY OF WEATHER…IT IS A CLASSIC SOUTHERN STORM…I.E. TOUGH FORECASTING AND POWER…A STORM COMING OUT OF THE TEXAS PANHANDLE AND TRACKING RIGHT OVER THE BI-STATE REGION…RAIN IN FRONT THEN AS WE GET ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE SYSTEM AND SLIGHTLY COLDER AIR GETS SUCKED IN…WE SEE A KICK TO RAIN AND WET SNOW AND THEN SNOW…A LOT OF MOISTURE WITH THE SYSTEM…AND ALOT OF WIND. THE SNOW FOR US IS ALL ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE LOW…SO THE LOW HAS TO MOVE BY…WINDS SWING TO THE WEST/NORTHWEST..AND THE LOW IS CARRYING JUST ENOUGH COLD AIR TO KICK THE MOISTURE TO SNOW. THESE STORMS ARE TOUGH…A LITTLE CHANGE IN THE PATH…AS LITTLE AS 30 TO 50 MILES CAN MEAN A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE IN THE FINAL SNOWFALL AMOUNTS…HERE’S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE RIGHT NOW…BY WEDNESDAY NIGHT…SO A LONG LASTING EVENT…THE STORM SLOWS DOWN AND HANGS IN THE OHIO VALLEY…EXPLAINING¬† THE WINTER WEEK AHEAD…

THIS IS A WILD SNOW PATTERN…WITH AN ALERT…CHANGES IN THE TRACK…AS LITTLE AS 50 MILES…RASIES CONCERNS…THE “BUST” POTENTIAL IS HIGH…BUT THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS RIGHT NOW
