Despite plenty of clouds expected across Kentucky and Southern Indiana on this Friday, the unseasonably mild air is set to stick around through the upcoming weekend. With moisture streaming northward from the south and a weak boundary over the region expect another mostly cloudy day with a few passing sprinkles not out of the question. Afternoon highs will drop back just a bit into the low 60s but remain well above average for late December. Our rain chances should pick up this weekend as a wave of low pressure to our north pulls a stronger cold front through the region.
The majority of Saturday should be mainly dry as breezy south winds keep us mild as high jump back up into the mid-60s. By the evening hours a few showers will be possible, but the bulk of the expected rainfall should occur Saturday and through Sunday. We could see upwards of an inch of rain out of this system and a few rumbles of thunder can’t be ruled out before the milder air finally gives way to more typical December temperatures for the final few days of 2019. It looks dry and cool Monday through Wednesday with highs in the 40s. For those going out to celebrate the arrival of 2020, expect a chilly Tuesday evening with temperatures dropping in the 30s.
TODAY: Cloudy and mild, a few sprinkles. High: 62. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
TONIGHT: More clouds and pleasant. Low: 53. Wind: E 5 mph.
SATURDAY: Scattered clouds, showers by evening. High: 67. Wind: SE 10-15 mph.
