A Cold front crosses the state this morning…carrying the rain away. Many areas received anywhere from .25″ – .75″ … but isolated areas like Lexington picked up more than 1″ of rain since Midnight! All of this rain was beneficial in terms of our current drought. Behind the front, the winds have cranked up. Winds will be sustained from 15-20mph, but winds could gust up to 30mph. However, earlier this morning, many cities (including Louisville, Lexington, and Bowling Green) had wind gusts OVER 35mph.
The gusty winds are blowing out of the NW, and it’s ushering in some much colder air. Yesterday’s upper 70s will be replaced with Upper 50s by this afternoon ( roughly a 20° temperature difference). Clouds will also hover across the Northern half of KY through the afternoon. Tonight, temps fall into the upper 30s…making for a chilly start to your Thursday.
Friday into the weekend, temps gradually warm up. Highs will hover near 70° for Friday with Mid-Upper 70s this weekend. The next chance for rain will mainly be Monday as another cold front moves into our area. However, isolated showers are possible Sunday…stay tuned for updates.
