Quiet and pleasantly cool weather to close out the week

An upper level system should brings clouds and light showers for Thunder over Louisville on Saturday

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Our weather is looking dry and fairly pleasant as we head into the late week across Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Expect a cool start to Thursday with upper 30s and low 40s but with plenty of sunshine on the way thanks to high pressure building in, it should be a nice day. Temperatures will remain below average for mid-April with afternoon highs either side of the 60-degree mark thanks to a cooler northwest breeze. The quiet weather will continue into Friday with a mix of clouds and sunshine and temperatures a few degrees milder as we top out into the low and mid-60s. 

Some upper level energy is still forecast to move through the area on Saturday, bringing clouds and a few light showers for Thunder over Louisville. The biggest impact looks to be on the air show, especially if the cloud deck remains fairly low. The chance for light rain showers drops a bit into the evening hours so the fireworks should be a go. It will be a cooler day with highs only in the upper 50s. The unsettled weather continues into Sunday as another disturbance brings a few more showers to the area. Temperatures will stay in the low to mid-60s for highs early next week before another cold front backs our temperatures down a bit more later next week. 


TONIGHT: Mostly clear and chilly. Low: 41°. Wind: NW 5 mph.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny and breezy. High: 61°. Wind: NW 10-15 mph.

FRIDAY: Partly sunny, a touch milder. High: 65°. Wind: NW 5-10 mph.
