Expect the cloudy skies to stick around into the mid-week across Kentucky and Southern Indiana as the low-level moisture stays locked into the region. It will be another chilly night with early morning lows in the upper 20s before afternoon highs creep back into the low 40s. The active weather should stay to our south as a few waves of low-pressure slide along the Gulf Coast over the next few days. With some upper level energy passing through our area, we could see a light wintry mix of rain and snow for parts of Kentuckiana Wednesday evening and into early Thursday, but we aren’t expecting any real impact from that. Hopefully we’ll squeeze a few peeks of sunshine Thursday with highs back into the mid-40s.
With the second wave of low pressure to our south on Friday, we could see a passing shower or two as this system rolls toward the east coast with highs in the upper 40s. Heading into February this weekend the big story will be the return of unseasonably mild temperatures. Highs should be in the low 50s into Groundhog Day before surging to low 60s on Monday. A fairly strong cold front looks to move through late Tuesday with rain and some thunder along with highs in the low to mid-60s, but temperatures should drop significantly behind the front with a return to winter by the middle of next week.
TONIGHT: Cloudy skies and cold. Low: 29°. Wind: N 5 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy, cool, dry daytime, light mix at night. High: 42°. Wind: E 5-10 mph.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy, still cool. High: 44°. Wind: NW 5-10.
