After a little bonus sunshine Thursday for parts of Kentuckiana, the clouds are back, and you can expect those to stick around as we close out January on Friday and head into February this weekend. Another area of low pressure will slide only the Gulf Coast on Friday sending some moisture northward into Kentucky and Southern Indiana. With some upper level energy overhead, this combination should be enough to produce light rain across the region on Friday. As the initial moisture moves in early Friday, we could see a few snowflakes mixed in mainly across Southern Indiana, but any impacts look minimal with temperatures at or just above freezing. The shower chances continue through Friday with highs in the mid-40s. A few lingering showers will be possible Saturday to kick off February with highs in the upper 40s.

Groundhog Day on Sunday looks delightful across the area as sunshine returns and afternoon highs jump back into the upper 50s so it should be a pleasant early February day. Our next storm system will get cranked up to the west and make a run for our area on Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures will be unseasonably mild with highs in the low 60s thanks to a breezy southwest wind. At this point, we could see several waves of rain and a few storms from Monday night into early Wednesday as the front moves through. Temperatures will slowly fall through the day on Wednesday and while cooler air is expected by mid-week, it shouldn’t be anything off the charts for this time of the year.
