We're cloudy with scattered showers and a few isolated storms in our forecast. Though we're mild during the first half of the day, look for cold punch of air during the evening and overnight hours.
The precipitation should remain rain through sunset, with a little bit of sleet mixing in by the overnight hours into tomorrow.
By tomorrow afternoon, sleet and freezing rain will be our primary concerns...especially the further west you live [Franklin/Anderson/Mercer Counties]. Please exercise extreme caution on the roadways when they are wet!
Happy Thursday (aka Friday-Eve):
Grab your umbrella and rain gear before you head out the door this morning. We'll start your morning with temps in the 60s, but by lunch time, look for temps to tumble into the mid 50s with scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms. During your drive home from work, around 5pm, temps will continue their plunge into the mid to upper 40s before bottoming out in the mid 30s overnight. The rainfall that we see today would lead to localized flooding.
Friday's weather will be "interesting." With temperatures hovering in the mid 30s all day, a wintry mix is in store. Rain, snow, sleet & freezing rain will all accompany this next punch of arctic air. Because of the travel impacts and accumulating wintry mix into Saturday morning, the NWS has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the Bluegrass region.
