After a damp finish to the week across Kentucky and Southern Indiana, our weather is looking better as we kick off the upcoming weekend. Scattered showers will come to an end overnight with cooler and drier air filtering in as temperatures head back into the mid to upper 30s for early morning lows. A Frost Advisory is out for parts of Kentuckiana from 3am until 9am Saturday morning but the frost potential appears to be dependent on how quickly we clear out toward dawn and if the brisk northwest winds expected overnight diminish. Nevertheless, it’s best to be on the safe side so cover your tender plants or bring them in if possible. With sunshine returning by late morning, Saturday looks to be a pleasantly cool day for mid-April with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. Don’t forget about your social distancing if you step out to get some fresh air and enjoy the sunshine.
By Sunday, our area will get squeezed between a weak front to our north and a more significant system to our south. The bulk of the moisture should remain south of the region but a few scattered showers and rumbles of thunder area possible, especially for our Southern Kentucky counties. It looks mainly dry into early next week as temperatures slowly work their way back to around average for afternoon highs. An area of low pressure will approach mid-week but most of the rain and thunderstorms should hold off until Wednesday evening and into Thursday with highs into the low and mid-70s. Another cold front looks to bring additional storm chances to close out next week as highs remain warm into the mid-70s.
