Unseasonably mild air is on the way to Kentucky and Southern Indiana

Highs will jump into the 50s Wednesday before continuing the upward trend into the 60s late this week

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After stubborn low cloud cover made for another chilly day across Kentucky and Southern Indiana on Tuesday, we’ve got much better weather on the way for the remainder of the week. High pressure to our southeast should push enough dry air back into the region for abundant sunshine to return on Wednesday and with a southwest wind in pace, afternoon highs may surge all the way back into the mid-50s. The good news is that this upward trend is temperatures will continue late this week. Afternoon highs are expected into the low and mid-60s Thursday and Friday with dry conditions remaining in place as our next storm system approaches from the west. 

It looks like a wet start to the weekend as a cold front slides through Kentuckiana Saturday with occasional rain and a damp day expected. With the front slowing down a bit, we are still looking at highs in the upper 50s to go along with breezy conditions. That later arrival of the front will mean the colder air won’t move into our area until later on Sunday and into Monday so the bulk of the moisture will be gone to end the weekend with just clouds hanging around and highs in the mid-40s. The cool air will stick around into early next week with dry conditions and highs in the low and mid-40s.

FORECAST: 

TONIGHT: PA few clouds and cold. Low: 35°. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny and warmer. High: 57°. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.

THURSDAY: More sunshine, continued nice. High: 60°. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
