After Record Low temps this morning in many cities, a southerly wind will finally warm our temps back ABOVE freezing this afternoon! All day yesterday (Tuesday) temps never reach the 32° mark…setting a record for the coldest “high” temps for that date. Thankfully, temps will reach the upper 30s to low 40s this afternoon…and a slow/gradual warming trend can be expected into early next week. Tonight, it will be cold..but not as cold as last night with lows staying in the 20s. Thursday, highs will reach the mid-upper 40s ahead of a dry (rain-free) cold front that’ll cross KY. In the wake of the front, it won’t be brutally cold…with highs back in the low-mid 40s by Friday afternoon.
The Weekend brings quiet weather with upper 40s on Saturday and highs around 50° by Sunday. Then, thankfully, we’ll experience temps within the low 50s to start next week.
(The thing to note is that…even though temps will be warming up, temps will remain BELOW average through early next week. Based on climatology, afternoon highs should be around the Mid-Upper 50s this time of year. It looks like it’ll be a while before we get back to that.)
