Tranquil weather to finish out the holiday weekend before things get active

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — It was good to see some sunshine return to Kentucky and Southern Indiana on Friday and that will be a prelude of things to come for the second half of the long holiday weekend. A weakening boundary will bring a re-enforcing shot of cooler air to the region on Saturday with afternoon highs into the low 50s despite plenty of sunshine. Our next storm system will gather strength to our southwest Sunday, but we should remain dry through the daylight hours as clouds slowly increase with afternoon hours reaching the mid-50s. Our coldest air of the season should arrive along with the first snowflakes as we wrap up November on Monday.

An area of low pressure will slide by to our southeast, throwing moisture northward into the region as a front ushers in cold air from the northwest. At this point it appears the precipitation will start as rain Sunday night into early Monday before mixing with and eventually changing to snow showers as temperatures slowly fall through the 30s during the daylight hours. The bulk of the moisture looks to exit the area now by Tuesday morning so any potential light accumulation would be Monday night and mainly east of Louisville. Tuesday now looks mostly dry and cold with highs in the mid-30s. We’ll stay chilly through the mid and late week with highs in the low 40s along with the chance of a few showers, possible mixed with flakes Thursday and Friday.

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and very chilly. Low: 37°. Wind: NW 5 mph.

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny and a touch cooler. High: 53°. Wind: N 5 mph.

SUNDAY: Clouds increase. High: 56°. Wind: E 5-10 mph.
