Enjoy today because BIG CHANGES take place starting tomorrow (Thursday). After a cold start this morning, temps will rebound nicely this afternoon with seasonable temps in the low 60s for most cities. Expect increasing clouds with a few showers around the PM Commute time for areas west of I-65. Some of those showers may sneak east towards Louisville by dinner time tonight. However, the best chance for rain (statewide) will be throughout the day on Thursday affiliated with a strong cold front that’ll cross the area. Rainfall estimates around 1″ are possible, and areas across Northern KY could even get a wintry mix or a switch to light snow by Thursday late afternoon before the showers come to an end.
The front will be affiliated with MUCH colder air. The warmest temps Thursday will be in the morning with temps near 50°, then temps gradually cool behind the front…ending up in the 30s by early evening with a wind chill. By Friday morning, expect FRIGID temps in the 20s with highs only around 40° (but there will be lots of sunshine). More 20s are on deck for Saturday morning before temps warm into the 50s by the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 50s by Sunday ahead of another strong cold front that’ll arrive on Monday. This 2nd system will bring some of the coldest air of the season thus far with temps in the low 20s by Tuesday morning…and highs only around freezing by Tuesday afternoon.
With Monday’s system, we’re also monitoring the potential for snow showers or a wintry mix. Monday is Veteran’s Day; so, stay tuned as we continue to fine-tune that forecast. Regardless, plan on a COLD Veterans Day.
