A Sun-Filled Monday!

High pressure dominates our weather, and it’ll lead to us enjoying a mainly sunny day with highs in the Upper 40s.  For some parts of the state, this dry weather will be short-lived as a quick moving area of low pressure will race across SSE KY early Tuesday morning. The system will bring several hours of a “mixed bag of weather” to portions of Southern KY (around Bowling Green & Campbellsville)… and to portions of Southeastern KY  (including the cities of Jackson, Hazard, and surrounding cities).   Accumulations aren’t likely for most areas, but parts of extreme SE KY (including Jackson and Hazard) could get a quick 1″ – 2″ of snow by Mid-Morning on Tuesday. Otherwise, this entire system moves out by Noon…leaving a quiet rest of the day.   Lexington should dodge most of this precip with the exception of maybe a few flurries flying…Louisville Metro will also dodge this system. 

Highs Tuesday will return to the upper 40s through the afternoon, and lows will fall just below freezing by Wednsday morning.  Midweek temps will be seasonable with low-mid 40s, then temps warm up by the end of the workweek ahead of our next system.  Highs Thursday through Saturday will flirt with 60°…but get ready for lots of rain. 

Thursday, only isolated PM showers are expected. However, Friday, rain is likely…with the same expected for Saturday until an area of low pressure crosses.  Flooding is a big concern considering as much as 3″ – 5″ of rain will be possible Thursday through Saturday night. Stay tuned…
