In 24 hrs the models went from an historic superstorm over the Appalachians to a run-of-the-mill nor’easter. The models are now all in agreement that the phasing of the jet streams will occur well east of the region, which means this storm will mainly go out to sea. Kentucky may get some light snow Sunday night into Monday morning with the arctic front but minimal accumulations. There may be some light snow showers when the trough swings through midweek. It is amazing to me how much of the meteorological community (including myself) jumped onto the Appalachian superstorm idea Wednesday/Thursday just to see the rug pulled out from underneath. This reminds me of what it feels like to use models to forecast snowstorms for KY.
