After temperatures in the 30s to start the day, highs should recover well into the 60s later on Saturday
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — It finally felt like fall to end the week across Kentucky and Southern Indiana and while we are looking at our coldest morning of the season heading into Saturday, the upcoming weekend should be nice as milder air returns quickly. With high pressure overhead, clear skies and light winds, widespread frost is expected Saturday morning as temperatures dip into the low and mid-30s. A Frost Advisory is out until 9am Saturday morning as the growing season should wrap up thanks to the chilly air. The area of high pressure will slide eastward during the day on Saturday, allowing for south winds to bring milder air back into Kentuckiana. Afternoon highs should surge back into the mid to upper 60s, so we are looking at a big temperature swing from the early morning to the late afternoon.
Sunday looks mild with highs around 70 degrees with a few showers possible late as our next system approaches from the northwest. A frontal boundary will move into the region and put on the brakes into early next week, so we are looking at a legitimate rain chance Monday, which is great news given the dry conditions over the last month. Scattered showers will still be possible into the mid-week as the boundary eventually lifts back to the north. Afternoon highs will stay in the 60s early in the week with the clouds and rain around before jumping back into the 70s starting Wednesday. After a dry Thursday, another cold front looks to bring more shower chances next Friday.
TONIGHT: Clear with widespread frost Low: 36°. Wind: Calm.
SATURDAY: Morning frost, then mostly sunny and milder. High: 68°. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny and mild, a late shower possible. High: 71° Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
