Wednesday, May 9, 2012: A Few Sprinkles, Then Chilly Tonight

Good Wednesday morning, everybody.  We've had a few sprinkles and light rain showers early this morning in central Kentucky, and at mid-morning, most of the action is limited to southeastern Kentucky.  All of this is light, with most areas seeing only a trace of rain in southeastern Kentucky so far.  This will continue to slide east-northeast, eventually into Virginia and West Virginia.

On the heels of the weak wave producing this morning's light rain showers, skies will trend partly sunny in western parts of the area, with mostly cloudy skies to the east and southeast through much of the day. 

A new disturbance will rotate through the Ohio Valley late today and this evening, producing a few additional sprinkles, this time, mainly near and north of I-64.  Most areas will not see measurable precipitation with this, although 0.01" is not out of the question for a few spots.  Here's a look at the GFS forecast for total rainfall for the next 24 hours.

We'll slowly clear out tonight, and the rest of the workweek will be dry and much brighter, with beautiful but borderline chilly weather on Thursday and Friday.  Lows will dip down to 44° tonight, and around 42° on an unseasonably chilly Friday morning.

Here is the 24 hour temperature change from 5 AM Wednesday to 5 AM Thursday, as forecast by the WRF model.  We'll certainly notice the big change as cooler air arrives.
