It was a Chilly morning! Lows bottomed out into the 30s for many cities, but the afternoon will remain unseasonably cool with highs only in the 60s. A cold cored ridge of High Pressure has control of our region today, but tomorrow it moves away. Behind the High, a southerly wind will usher in warmer air…leading to the beginning of a warming trend. So, expect another cold night with lows back in the upper 30s to low 40s. However, temps creep back up to around “average” with highs near 70° by Friday afternoon thanks to the SE winds. The weekend brings Mid-Upper 70s, and this trend won’t change until a cold front crosses Monday afternoon. In its wake, a return to cooler 60s can be expected.
As for rain, the next BEST chance for rain will be Monday affiliated with the previously mentioned cold front. However, an upper disturbance may help spit out some spotty showers this weekend for parts of KY (not all)…stay tuned for updates.
Tropics: There’s something brewing in the Gulf of Mexico that could become a tropical cyclone soon. Regardless, it’s going to bring a lot of rain to parts of the North/Northeastern Gulf Coast, GA, and potentially the Carolinas.
