A cold front is east of our area, but an upper level disturbance has helped create early AM rain across KY. The rain ends this morning, and a dry afternoon can be expected. It’ll be seasonably cool with highs in the mid-upper 40s. Tonight, it will be dry…but rain returns tomorrow (Wednesday).
An area of low pressure moves into our Region for Wednesday, and rain chances will gradually increase from south to north throughout the morning. By the afternoon, light to moderate rain is likely across the entire state. Unfortunately, heavier rain is expected Wednesday night as the actual area of low pressure & its cold front crosses the state. A few storms are also possible across Southern KY, but the MAIN THREAT IS FLOODING.
**Parts of SE KY are already dealing with flooding, and another possible 2″ of rainfall by Thursday morning will only enhance the flood threat. Continue to monitor the forecast because Flash Flooding (which happens rapidly) is possible along with the expected minor River Flooding.
Thankfully, the rain completely moves out Thursday. However, Arctic Air slides in behind it. Lows will bottom out in the TEENS by Friday (Valentine’s Day) morning, and highs will barely reach the freezing mark. Yet, there will be lots of sunshine. Get ready for another hard freeze with teens on Friday night into Saturday morning. Thanks to a southerly wind, temps rebound to near 50° by Saturday afternoon with Mid 50s by Sunday. For now, both days look relatively dry.
