Gusty Winds & Rain On The Way

Temperatures will remain mild as we head into Friday morning with readings in the lower to middle 50s around daybreak.  You’ll see scattered rain showers if you live near the Ohio River, but most of the rain will be northwest of the river early in the day.  Showers will gradually spread to the southeast as we head through the day with most areas seeing scattered showers by evening and into Friday night.  Afternoon highs will top out in the lower to middle 60s with winds gusting as high as 35 mph throughout the day.  

Winds will be even stronger as we head into Saturday with gusts between 40 and 50 mph.  While it won’t rain all day on Saturday, the chance of rain will be around for most of the day.  The heaviest rain will start in western Kentucky early Saturday and work its way to the east throughout the day.  Heavy downpours and a few strong storms will be possible along this line, which will likely cross I-65 by early to mid afternoon. The line of showers will cross the I-75 corridor by mid to late afternoon.  Gusty winds will be the primary threat with any strong storms that develop.  

High temperatures will be 20-30 degrees above average on Saturday, which will put some areas in record territory Saturday afternoon.  It will be dry and much cooler on Sunday with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
