Patchy frost tonight but warmer weather will return this week


What a difference a cold front makes. Yesterday we had highs in upper 70s; however, today we’ve spend the majority of the day in the 50s with a blustery northwest wind. Of course we can’t forget about the much needed rainfall overnight too. Many locations across the Bluegrass collected over 1 inch of rainfall overnight.

High pressure will begin to takeover tonight; expect skies to become mostly clear with light winds. This will create perfect conditions for patchy frost to develop especially in the valleys. If you still have vegetables you want to keep alive be sure to cover them up tonight.

Thursday, will still be on the cool side with temperatures on only moving into the upper 50s to low 60s even with the sunshine the post frontal conditions with keep us cool. Expect a warmer days Friday through Sunday.


It’s Fall after all so the roller coaster of temperatures continues. We’ll go on a slight warming trend as we approach the weekend, may even touch 80 in some spots by Sunday but another cold front takes aim Sunday and Monday across the Ohio Valley.

As of now the cold front looks to move through Sunday overnight into Monday. This boundary will be contain a good soaking across the region for precipitation but also another 20 degree temperature drop.
