Showers today, but more rain & a warm up to start Spring

Today’s weather pattern will be a bit unsettled.  Don’t expect heavy rain, but there will be a chance for light showers later this afternoon/evening affiliated with an upper level disturbance.  A few showers will remain in the forecast overnight into Tuesday morning…ahead of a cold front that’ll cross before Noon.  The chance of rain goes away for your Tuesday (St. Pattie’s Day) afternoon.  Temps will be in the low-mid 50s today with temps climbing into the upper 50s Tuesday (even behind the cold front).  

Wednesday, a warm front lifts north filtering MUCH WARMER AIR into our great state. Highs for Wednesday reach the upper 60s and low 70s…with mid 70s for both Thursday and Friday ahead of a cold front.  However, both Wednesday and Thursday bring a likely chance for showers, storms, and locally heavy rain.  For the two days combined, up to 2″ are possible (especially for the Northern Half of KY)… making flooding a threat. Stay tuned for updates. Also, don’t forget that Spring begins on Thursday, March 19th at 11:50PM EDT.

A strong cold front will cross on Friday, and the showers will end behind it while COLDER air moves in.  Lows for Friday night will drop to near the freezing mark. Expect a cooler than average weekend with highs only in the 40s and low 50s.  Yet, it looks like the weekend will be dry for now…but stay tuned for changes.
