Rainy Today…then COLD!

Expect a RAINY Thursday! Light to moderate rain will dominate all morning long, but it will gradually taper-off from west to east by this afternoon. Rainfall estimates will generally be around .5″ (with up to 1″ possible).  Today’s rain is affiliated with a passing cold front, and thankfully no severe weather expected. However, MUCH COLDER air moves in behind the front…and it looks like the cold air will catch up to the moisture over Northern KY.  So, expect a brief switch over to a wintry mix / snow between Noon and 4PM for extreme N. KY

Otherwise, the precip ends across the state by early evening with clearing skies and frigid air settling in. Expect Mid 20s for the start of your Friday, and highs only near 40° (but there will be sunshine).  Saturday morning will also bring 20s, but temps gradually rebound over the weekend with afternoon highs near 60° by Sunday.  

A stronger cold front moves into our area early Veterans Day (Monday), and it’ll bring the 1st dose of widespread wintry weather.  It’s too early to say if accumulations are likely, but stay tuned as we continue to fine-tune the forecast. Regardless, Veterans Day will be cold with highs only in the 40s.  Then, FRIGID Canadian air filters in behind the front…dropping temps into the 20s by Tuesday morning…and TEENS by Wednesday morning. We’ll be lucky if afternoon highs get above freezing both days.
