Here's a look at the most likely scenario (from 3 days out) for Wednesday's storm.
It looks to be heading toward what is our most common winter storm track which is a low travelling up the west side of the mountains and dying on or near us with a secondary low developing from that on the other side of the Appalachians. This type of pattern is the reason why nobody mistakes Lexington's weather for Michigan as this is a snow killer here.
If this scenario plays out, western Kentucky, southern Illinois, to southern/central Indiana and Ohio get BIG snow, and we get cold rain with snow at the end.
We'll keep tracking it as we get toward the big travel days.
