Warmer Today, but More Clouds…then Rain Returns Soon

The Arctic High that has kept our temps WELL BELOW average this week will slowly slide east today.  A  southeasterly wind will help increase afternoon temps back to seasonable low-mid 40s.  Expect clouds to dominate the sky by the afternoon as they continue to roll in ahead of our next system that will bring rain starting tomorrow (Thursday).   An area of low pressure will approach the area, and showers will impact parts of Western KY by early afternoon on Thursday…with rain more likely for Central & Western KY by the evening.  

Rain takes over the entire state for Friday as the previously mentioned Low slides across our Region.  Rainfall estimates of up to 1″ are possible, and it’ll also be mild with highs near 50°.  Friday evening into Saturday, the low moves away but a wintry mix is expected as colder air catches up with the moisture.  Snow accumulations don’t look to amount to much more than a dusting for some areas…but light accumulations are possible for extreme SE KY through Early Sunday (stay tuned for updates).  Afternoon highs this weekend will range in the low – mid 40s.

Early next week, it looks like a slight warm up is in the forecast…with 50s returning.
