A few showers south Friday before we dry out for the weekend

Temperatures will stay slightly below average into the mid-40s through the next few days

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Clouds have returned to Kentucky and Southern Indiana and it looks like those will be hanging around as we end the week along with the chance of showers in some locations. With an area of low pressure along the Gulf Coast set to slide up the Eastern Seaboard into the weekend, some upper level energy on the north side of this system should bring showers back to Kentuckiana. Right now, much of the data keeps the majority of the rain on Friday into our Kentucky counties with a sharp cut-off into Southern Indiana. So, it looks like folks south of the Ohio River may need the rain gear on Friday as afternoon highs reach the mid to upper 40s. 

By Saturday this system should pull out of the area with a quiet and cool weekend on the way. Afternoon highs should hang into the mid to upper 40s with a mix of clouds and sunshine with chilly early morning lows in the low 30s. The upper level system dropping in from the northwest on Monday should knock our temperatures down a few degrees but at this point shouldn’t bring anything more than a few flurries and/or sprinkles to our area. Temperatures will be on the rise toward the middle part of next week with highs jumping back into the low 50s. 

TONIGHT: A few showers move in. Low: 39°. Wind: S 5 mph. 

FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers, mainly south. High: 47°. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.

SATURDAY: Scattered clouds and cool. High: 45°. Wind: NW 5-10 mph.
