Rain Moves Out Today, Then Frigid Air Moves In

The rainy pattern we’ve been stuck in will FINALLY let go of its grip after today.  Showers will hold on for parts of Eastern KY through early afternoon, then High pressure wins over.  There could be a wintry mix for extreme Northern KY before it’s all said and done, but no accumulations expected.  Highs today will hover near 40 degrees, THEN we have to get ready for ARCTIC AIR to settle in tonight on a NW wind.  Tonight through tomorrow moring, temps will fall into the TEENS with wind chill values in the low teens (and possible single digits for some areas).  Make sure to let the faucets drip tonight, and hopefully any outdoor exposed pipes are already covered.  

Friday (Valentine’s Day) afternoon brings sunshine, but highs will struggle to reach the freezing mark (32 degrees).  Under a clear sky Friday night, temps will, again, fall down into the teens… leading to a FRIGID kick-off to your weekend.  Thankfully, a southerly wind will take over and rebound temps to around 50 degrees by Saturday afternoon.  Sunday brings more 50s, and the entire weekend looks rain-free (so, make some outdoor plans). 

Early next week, we get to enjoy 60s ahead of the next weather maker.  Rain moves in by Tuesday affiliated with a cold front, but another round of cold moves in behind it.
