Periods of Rain Today / Some Wintry Weather Tonight

Round #1 of rain brought KY anywhere from .5″ – 2.0″ of rain yesterday.  Today, we’re dealing with Round #2.  So, make sure you carry the umbrella wherever you go because scattered to numerous showers are expected all day affiliated with an area of low pressure that’ll slide across the state.  Additional rainfall estimates will range from .10″ – .30″.    Areas to the east of the Low will briefly tap into the some warmer air… with highs in the upper 50s (around London) to low 50s (around Lexington). Areas north and west of the Low will stay in the low-mid 40s for highs ( around Louisville). 

Tonight, colder air will meet up with the moisture before it can move out…switching precip over to a wintry mix in Louisville around 8PM …and then light snow across Northern KY by 10PM tonightThere will be light accumulations across parts of N. KY on grassy/elevated surfaces, but just a dusting (less than 1″).   Roads should be fine since the ground temp will be warm.  This entire system moves out for Sunday, but clouds may hug areas East of I-65 through the morning. Afternoon sunshine should peek through at some point.  Sunday’s highs will be near 50°. 

The kick-off to Thanksgiving Week warms up to around 60° through Tuesday.  Then, a cold front moves in…bringing rain Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Cooler air moves in behind the front… dropping lows into the the low-mid 30s by Thanksgiving Morning. Highs will be near 50° by Thanksgiving afternoon. It also looks like isolated showers are possible on Thanksgiving (especially for areas west of I-65…but stay tuned).
