Rain Returns Later Today, and It’s COLDER

A cold front is now south of the area, and colder air has rolled in. So, this morning, it’s roughly 20° colder than yesterday morning…and this afternoon will be similar with 40s for highs (instead of 60s).  Being north of the front has also allowed for a brief break from the rain.  Aside from spotty light showers or drizzle, rain won’t really dampen any plans until later this afternoon and definitely this evening as an area of low pressure moves into the state.  This will be round 2, then we’ll get another lull in the rain by daybreak Thursday before another wave of rain rolls in around Midday Thursday.   An additional 1″ – 2″ are possible for parts of Southern and Eastern KY through Friday morning, and flooding is a big concern.  A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect for the southern half of the state. Watch Spectrum News1 throughout the day for updates, and have ways of getting alerts in case any flood warnings are issued. 

Friday, light snow showers are possible on the back end of this system.  Little to no accumulations are expected for most areas, but parts of Northern and Eastern KY could get up to 1″ on grassy surfaces.  A weaker system will roll across parts of the state Saturday, and a few more snow showers will be possible. Otherwise, the “Pick” day of the weekend will be Sunday!  That’s when we’re expecting to get our 1st dose of sunshine in a while! Highs Sunday will reach around 50°. 

Next week looks to bring warmer weather, but it also looks like another system may bring rain to the area. Stay tuned for updates.
