Milder Temperatures & Rain Chances Ahead
Midnight Update: We have some flurries and light snow moving across Central Kentucky, yet most of the snow has not been able to reach the ground, with dry air near the surface evaporating any falling snow. However, we expect that some snow may be able to reach the ground, and anything that falls, even if it is light, could cause slick spots, as temperatures are in the upper 20s on average right now. There will be another chance for a wintry mix and rain to develop late Thursday afternoon and evening, yet temperatures at that point will be in the mid to upper 30s. Temperatures get milder for Friday and Saturday with highs back to near 50 degrees. There will be a chance for a good soaking rain on Saturday, with rainfall amounts around 0.50" to 1.00" on average.
We will continue to have a warming trend as we approach the weekend, with rain chances returning for Thursday and Saturday.
TONIGHT: Skies will remain mostly cloudy tonight, with overnight low temperatures around 22 degrees.
THURSAY: Temperatures will start off in the lower 20s around daybreak Thursday, and rise into the upper 30s by Thursday afternoon. A weak weather disturbance will approach and move into the region by Thursday afternoon and evening, bringing the chance for rain and a little wintry mix of rain and snow. However, we are not expecting any major problems with this wintry mix, since temperatures will be above freezing.
THURSDAY NIGHT: The chance for some widely-scattered rain showers will linger into Thursday night, with overnight low temperatures around 36 degrees by early Friday morning.
FRIDAY: Skies will remain mostly cloudy through the day, with the chance for an isolated rain shower. Friday afternoon high temperatures will be milder, with a high of 50 degrees.
FRIDAY NIGHT: A weather disturbance and cold front will approach from the west, keeping our skies cloudy, with the chance for a few rain showers. Overnight low temperatures will be around 45 degrees.
SATURDAY: Widespread rain showers will move into the region on Saturday, especially early in the day, with a half-inch to inch of rainfall possible. High temperatures will be around 50 degrees, despite the rainy day.
SUNDAY: We look to be drier and cooler for Sunday, with partly cloudy skies and a high of 46 degrees.
NEXT WEEK: A few weather disturbances will approach the region by midweek next week, bringing the chance for a little wintry mix and snow, with temperatures in the 40s for Monday and Tuesday, and 30s Wednesday and Thursday of next week.
