An Umbrella is Needed Today

It’ll be a gloomy day with a relatively dry start.   However, as the day goes on, rain chances will increase.  Expect scattered showers for the afternoon drive time with rain more likely this evening.  Periods of light-moderate rain will continue through the overnight until roughly sunrise on Saturday for areas along I-65.  East of I-65, rain will cotinue into early afternoon before tapering off by late afternoon.  Rainfall estimates will range from barely .10″ across parts of Western KY to up to 1″ possible for Eastern KY.   Highs today will be near average with mid-upper 40s, and similar temps are on deck for the start of the weekend. 

Sunday, most of the day, looks quiet. However, by early evening… here’s comes the interesting weather:

-A warm front will lift north on Sunday as our next system moves in. North of the front, the atmosphere will be cold enough to support a brief wintry mix near I-64…and several hours of light snow for extreme Northern KY.  

-This Mixed bag of weather will take place for areas along & north of I-64 at some point between 4PM and Midnight before all of the precip turns into rain just after Midnight Monday AM.

-Any little snow accumulations for N. KY will be washed away once the rain moves in.

Monday, an area of low pressure crosses the Ohio River Valley, bringing 1″-2″ of rainfall.  There’s a small chance for possible severe storms Monday; so, stay tuned as we continue to monitor that threat. The system moves out by Tuesday, and we’ll be left with another dose of cold air behind it.  Highs Tuesday will stay in the 30s (and it’ll be WINDY).  Lows will drop into the teens by Wednesday morning with more 30s on deck for Wednesday afternoon.
