Chilly Today, but It Gets a Little Warmer Each Day

It was a chilly morning with widespread 30s and wind chill values in the 20s for some cities. This afternoon brings mainly cloudy skies and unseasonably cool highs in the low-mid 40s, but it’ll be a bit warmer for Western KY due to more sunshine. 

There’s a surface trough of low pressure (or wind shift line) that’ll cross by tomorrow morning.  All it will basically do is shift the winds from the SW to the WNW.  However, a bigger story regarding the forecast will be the gradual warming trend we’re in line for over the next couple days.  Highs today will stay in the 40s (as mentioned), but tomorrow…highs will be reach around 50° even with a WNW wind. Then, Thursday brings highs in the Mid 50s as the winds shift back to the SSW ahead of a cold front that’ll cross early Friday morning. This front will bring a few spotty showers with it Friday AM, and it also gets a little cooler behind the front with highs around 50° by Friday Afternoon. 

Saturday morning brings sub-freezing temps in the 20s, but abundant sunshine will allow for highs to bounce back to near 50° by Saturday afternoon. Sunday brings near average temps, and spotty evening showers are possible.  

As for now, it looks like next Monday will bring a larger system that could bring scattered showers with highs in the Mid-Upper 50s. Stay tuned for updates as we get closer.
