A rainy and breezy end to the work week

Wet weather will be moving into Kentuckiana today as an area of low pressure and a few frontal boundaries make their way through the Ohio Valley. Things will also be a bit windy this afternoon with gusts in the 30-40 mph range. 

We’re not expecting severe weather, just a soggy and breezy end to the week with rain totals <0.5″. The one uncertainty in the forecast for today is just how warm some areas of Kentuckiana will get before the cold front moves through this evening. Areas south of Louisville could get into the middle and upper 60s while southern Indiana may stay in the 50s at our warmest point.

We dry out by Saturday morning, but will start our day with a Frost Advisory and Freeze Warning in some areas of Kentuckiana until 9. Once the frost melts and the sun comes up, Saturday will definitely be the pick day of the weekend to do anything outdoors. 

Partly sunny and cool with highs in the low 60s. Rain on Sunday will start light and scattered so not a complete washout of a day, but we will definitely finish off our weekend on a wet note with more showers arriving in the afternoon. 

Heading into next week we’ll get a couple of dry days in a row with warmer temps back to where we should be for this time of year! Rain returns on Wednesday with a system moving in from the west.
