Sunday is a day of transition

Sunday’s weather will be decent, but rain and snow looms.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — We have a complicated forecast as we end November and start December. First, quiet conditions Saturday night and Sunday morning with a mostly clear sky and lows in the lower and middle 30s. Patchy fog may develop early Sunday morning.

Sunday sees temperatures climb into the middle 50s with a light east wind. Clouds increase throughout the day, but we’ll stay dry until after dark when rain begins creeping its way into our region. It’ll also turn breezier. Lows Sunday night only in the upper 30s. Rain should continue into Monday with falling temperatures as cold air continues to rush in.

Current thinking is rain will gradually transition to snow by Monday evening/night as temperatures cool toward freezing. Snow totals are tricky as the ground is still quite warm. Accumulation along and east of I-65 is possible with heavier amounts more likely from a line of about Frankfort to Cincinnati. Louisville accumulation should generally be under 1 inch with 1 or more inches possible in the region mentioned above. Again, with the ground being so warm and air temperatures slowly falling toward freezing, much of this would likely melt soon after contact.

It’ll also be windy Monday…northwest winds 15-25 mph will yield wind chill values in the 20s. Just a raw and nasty day. Tuesday is equally cold as we stay in the 30s all day with a west wind, but dry conditions.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear and calm. Low: 33°. Wind: Calm.

SUNDAY: Increasing afternoon clouds; rain after dark. High: 56°. Wind: Light East.

MONDAY: Rain turning to snow late; cold and breezy. High: 39°. Wind: NW 15-25 mph.
