A gloomy final week of October across Kentucky and Southern Indiana

We are looking at a few rain chances with afternoon highs at or below average for this time of the year.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After a cloudy and gloomy start to this final week of October, it doesn’t appear we’ll see much sunshine across Kentucky and Southern Indiana in the coming days. With a wave of energy sliding in from the southwest, a few scattered showers will be possible into Tuesday. With the clouds and a northeast wind in place, afternoon highs will struggle again to reach the mid-50s for afternoon highs. Our weather will stay unsettled into the mid and late week as a more significant storm system moves in. Our rain chances should ramp up late Wednesday with a wet Thursday on the way. 

The tropics are still active with Zeta expected to make landfall along the Louisiana Gulf Coast late Wednesday before being swept up by the storm system that will impact our weather. With a bit of tropical moisture potentially added to the mix, we are looking at some solid rainfall totals with many spots seeing 1”-3” of rain. Our weather will clear out and cool down just in time for Halloween on Saturday. As we flip the calendar to November early Sunday, Daylight Saving Time returns so you’ll need to set your clocks back 1 hour before bed Saturday night and you’ll pick up an extra hour on sleep.

TONIGHT: Cloudy with a few showers. Low: 44°. Wind: N 5 mph. 

TUESDAY: More clouds and scattered showers. High: 54°.  Wind: NE 5-10 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Milder with showers returning late. High: 65°. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.
