A warm front lifts north this morning, then a cold front crosses this afternoon. With all of these boundaries in place, expect scattered light to moderate showers throughout the day. However, ahead of the cold front, some isolated storms may pop up across Southern & Eastern KY later this afternoon into the evening. Temperatures will be unseasonably warm today with highs in the Mid 60s. Many cities (including Louisville, Lexington, and Bowling Green) will challenge standing Record Highs this afternoon.
In the wake of the front, expect a return to colder “Winter-like” weather. Thursday morning starts with widespread 30s, and afternoon highs will be seasonable with low 40s. Thankfully, we’ll have plentiful sunshine to help warm us up a bit. Friday’s weather isn’t looking as messy as we once thought; so, we now only have isolated rain showers in Friday’s forecast. Yet, there could still be a little bit of a wintry mix (a brief period of freezing rain) for Northern KY late Friday into the predawn hours of Saturday AM. Then, the atmosphere warms up ahead of another approaching cold front… and plain RAIN takes over for the Kick-Off to the weekend. An easy 1″ of rainfall is possible…stay tuned. Highs Friday will be seasonable, but it warms into the mid-upper 50s on Saturday.
In the wake of this secondary front, an ARCTIC blast invades our Region. Sunday morning brings 20s…with afternoon highs below the freezing mark. Monday (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day) morning brings TEENS…with afternoon highs around freezing. Tuesday, will remain unseasonable cold with mid 30s.
