A ridge of High Pressure sits across the Southeastern U.S, and a southerly wind prevails over our area. It will continue to pump in warmer than average air ahead of an approaching cold front that won’t arrive until Tuesday morning. Highs today will range 10-15 degrees above average with upper 60s, but it will be rather windy. Sustained winds of 15-20mph can be expected today with gusts of 25-35mph.
Showers start creeping into extreme Western KY as early as this evening ahead of an approaching cold front. Rain is likely after Midnight through daybreak across most of the state as the front crosses, then the rain tapers off by Midday as the front moves east. However, a mainly cloudy sky will remain. Rainfall estimates of .25″ – .50″ are possible.
Models are indicating that a quick moving disturbance may bring a few more showers to parts of KY on Wednesday, but temps will remain near 60°. Another cold front may cross Thursday night…bringing a few more showers ahead of that. However, Friday looks dry for now with seasonable 50s.
There could be some spotty showers this weekend…stay tuned for updates as we get closer.
