Snow Possibilities Increasing

Although we've had some light snow already, it hasn't been all that significant. A week or so ago a very light snowfall came through the area by surprise causing massive traffic headaches for the morning rush. Road crews weren't out treating the roads and many area roads simply became ice skating rinks.
Well, our next chance of snow is coming up this weekend. An area of low pressure will move through central Kentucky Friday night into Saturday morning with the potential of laying down 1-3 inches of snow across the area. Another system, an Alberta Clipper, will swing through the area Sunday with 1-2 inches of potential accumulation. Finally, a storm may develop across the south bringing us the potential for heavy snow mid-week next week. Current models indicate that this storm will come through our area next Wednesday and Thursday, Christmas Eve. The models are in disagreement at this point though. There are two possible storm tracks. We want the southern track though for snow. I think a good track would be through central Kentucky. If the low tracks along the Ohio river, we might be okay for snow, but I'm not sure.
Wouldn't it be awesome to get as much snow as in this picture? I'd be so excited if we did. I'd probably be jumping up and down like a little kid. :-)
