Cold, but Sunny Today! A Warm Up is on the Way!

A cold Canadian Ridge of High Pressure is sitting over our Region, and its frigid air mass has us freezing this morning with TEENS and low 20s.  It’ll remain very chilly throughout the day, but the High is affiliated with stable conditions…and LOTS of sunshine can be expected. Highs will hover around 40 degrees (roughly 10 degrees below average).  Tonight, it will be another cold night with more teens and 20s…making for a frigid start to your Saturday.  However, the cold core High Pressure area will move SE by Saturday afternoon.  This will allow a SW wind to take over, and it’ll usher in some milder air.  So, highs will reach around 50 degrees by Saturday afternoon. 

Sunday, expect mid-upper 50s by the afternoon… but the next system will slide towards KY.  Isolated showers may impact areas west of I-65 by late afternoon / evening. Otherwise, the best chance for rain (statewide) will be Monday as Low pressure slides across the Ohio River. Highs will remain into the 50s both Monday and Tuesday, but it looks like the winds will shift to the NW behind a front early Wednesday.  Lingering showers will continue through Midweek affiliated with upper level disturbances, and colder air looks to meet up with the moisture by late Wednesday into early Thursday. So, don’t be surprised to get some light snow Midweek.  However, we’re still monitoring this system…so continue to check the forecast for updates.
