Our recent stretch of dreary weekends across Kentucky and Southern Indiana is set to continue as we head into Saturday. With an upper level system spinning over the Ohio Valley, some lingering moisture in place and cooler air, we should see a wintry mix of rain and snow showers, especially during the morning hours. With temperatures expected to be in the upper 30s, any snow showers should little impact on activities and travel. It will be a breezy day with winds 10 to 15 miles per hour so dress accordingly if you are planning on being out and about. Clouds will hang around on Sunday with highs in the low to mid-40s, and now it appears some upper level energy will slide through late in the day and into Sunday night, so a light rain/snow mix may be possible.
The big story next week looks to be the persistent cloudiness expected to hang around Kentuckiana. Afternoon highs should be right at or slightly above average for late January with readings into the mid and upper 40s. Another weak system should dive to our south mid-week and there may be enough moisture this far north to squeeze out a spotty shower or two, otherwise it looks mainly dry for much of the week as the clouds hang around. Expect more of the same late next week with mainly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 40s both Thursday and Friday.
TONIGHT: Cloudy with a mix of rain and snow showers. Low: 35. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
SATURDAY: Breezy with a mix of rain and snow showers. High: 39. Wind: W 10-15 mph.
SUNDAY: Cloudy with a few showers possible late. High: 43. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
