The rain continues across KY affiliated with an approaching area of low pressure and a cold front that will cross late tonight. Expect heavier rain this morning with scattered showers later this afternoon & evening. An additional .25″ – .5″ is expected today (locally more), and there could be some roads with quite a bit of water ponding on them. So, allow extra travel time when you’re out & about today. The previously mentioned cold front will be east of our area by late Saturday morning, but showers will continue due to the upper level low that will be crossing the state. This upper low is affiliated with colder air, plus colder air will be filtering in behind the passage of the surface cold front. So, there could be a few snow flakes mixing in with rain on Saturday afternoon/early evening…but little to no accumulations are expected for most areas. However, there is an exception for SE KY where light accumulations are possible.
Thankfully, it’s not very cold as we deal with this rain. Temps remain well above the average (both lows and highs), and temps will reach the mid-upper 50s before it’s all said and done today. Behind the front, temps gradually fall for Saturday. Temps will be near 50° just after Midnight… with temps near 40° by 7AM….and temps into the upper 30s (near 40°) for the rest of the day. So, expect a colder kick-off to your weekend.
Sunday, temps rebound back to near 50° as the sunshine comes back and a southwesterly wind returns. Expect similar weather for Monday, but our next system moves in Tuesday. It, too, could bring a little rain/snow mix. Stay tuned.
