Showers Today, then a Beautiful Start to the Weekend

A cold front is slowly making its way from north to south across the state.  Clouds and periodic showers can be expected, even behind the front, due to an upper level disturbance. However, areas north of I-64 will experience improving weather by this afternoon as the surface cold front moves further south…the upper disturbance drifts away… and drier air gradually slides in on a northernly wind.  South of I-64, showers will linger a bit longer into the afternoon/early evening since the front will take its time exiting into Tenessee.  Highs will hover near 80° North… and into the low 80s South of I-64. 

Tonight, a northerly wind will usher in some drier air.  So, Dew Points (which give the indication of the amount of moisture in the air) will go from near 70° today to 50s for most of the state by Saturday morning. This will lead to a refreshing feeling outside as we kick-off the weekend!  Throughout the day, High pressure will dominate and allow for lots of sunshine (although Southern KY may start the day with additional clouds before skies gradually clear). Highs will be unseasonably cool but PLEASANT…with low 80s.  So, Saturday looks to be the *pick* day for outdoor plans. 

Sunday, the weather looks pretty good for most of the day. However, the wind will return back out of the south and a warm front will lift north late. This will bring a chance for late afternoon/evening showers. Highs will warm up closer to seasonable mid-upper 80s.  Expect a rainier kick-off to next week as our next system impacts the Region…with highs close to average.  

Enjoy the Crave Fest and KY State Fair this Weekend!
