Spring-Like End to the Week

While some parts of Kentucky may see a few showers today, all of the Commonwealth will be experiencing warm temperatures and noticeably strong winds.

By far the best chance for rain will exist over the state lines into Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio.  However, showers will be likely for areas around Covington as well.  Elsewhere, just a chance for rain exists.  Temperatures will top out in the lower to upper 60s, which is 20-25 degrees warmer than average for mid-January.  Winds will be one of the culprits as they will be gusty out of the south at around 30 mph at times.

The chance for rain increases some for tonight for all of the Commonwealth, as temperatures stay mild and winds breezy.  Our lows only dip into the 50s, with some spots hanging onto the 60s overnight.

On Saturday, a possible line of storms will push across Kentucky from west to east, starting early in the morning for areas around Paducah.  That timing of this line will still be tweaked between Friday and Friday overnight, but as of now it appears it may be impacting areas around I-65 around midday or the early afternoon.  Eastern Kentucky will likely experience this line during the mid and late afternoon.  The Storm Prediction Center currently has a large portion of Kentucky in a Marginal Risk for Severe Weather.
