With high pressure in control, afternoon highs should recover into the upper 40s and a cold start Wednesday morning
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After our first snowflakes of the season and a cold start to December, our weather looks quiet through the mid-week across Kentucky and Southern Indiana. With clear skies expected into Wednesday morning, you’ll need to heavier coat early as temperatures drop into the mid-20s. With high pressure drifting to our east, we’ll see a bit of a return flow from the southwest during that afternoon. Add in plenty of sunshine and we should see a milder day with afternoon highs back into the upper 40s. Our next weather maker now looks to arrive to close out the week, so Thursday is now looking dry with clouds increasing and afternoon highs remaining in the upper 40s.
By Friday some upper level energy north of a surface low along the Gulf Coast will throw a little moisture our way with a few scattered showers possible and highs in the mid-40s. We could potentially see a few snowflakes mixed in Friday night and into Saturday morning if it gets cold enough but there shouldn’t be any impact as this should mainly be a rain event. A few isolated showers could linger into Saturday with highs remaining in the mid to upper 40s. A dry cold front will bring a re-enforcing shot of cooler air into the area on Monday with highs backing down into the low 40s, otherwise our weather looks tranquil early next week.
TONIGHT: Very chilly. Low: 25°. Wind: Calm.
WEDNESDAY: More sunshine, a touch milder. High: 47°. Wind: SW 5-10 mph
THURSDAY: Clouds increase, pleasantly cool. High: 48°. Wind :SE 5-10 mph.
