Stormy Conditions Continue in the West; Wintry Weather to Intensify Through This Weekend In the Central and Eastern U.S.

An intense Pacific Storm will continue bringing heavy rain and flooding, strong and gusty winds, heavy snow in the mountains up to 6 feet. As the system shifts east, mountain snow will intensify in the Great Basin and Rockies. Another storm system will bring wintry conditions to the central U.S., spreading snow into the Mid-Atlantic, including the DC Metro area in time for the evening commute. Read More >

Forecasting snow amounts across the lower Ohio Valley can be challenging for many reasons, particularly 2 to 3 days before the storm arrives. To help decision makers and the public better aware of the storm's potential, the National Weather Service in Louisville is providing a probabilistic snowfall forecast, highlighting the range of snowfall possibilities.

The goal of this experiment is to provide the public and our partners with a range of snowfall possibilities to better communicate forecast uncertainties during winter weather events. 

The Probabilistic Snowfall experiment forecasts can be found directly here:
