Another night of frosty conditions with warmer weather ahead

0

The sunshine was in full effect today but we were still hard pressed to get temperatures out of the 50s across much of the Bluegrass. Most locations finished the day in the upper 50s. With Fall conditions and the roller coaster of temperatures expected to continue over the next several days.

WHAT TO EXPECT

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. A Frost Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service for all of central and eastern Kentucky. This will likely be the last Frost Advisory of the season as the growing season is now over.

Friday will feature very similar conditions as today with plenty of sunshine and slightly warmer conditions. Expect temperatures to move into the mid 60s after a cool start to the day. Temperatures may still feel cooler than they actually are with a light wind out of the northeast.

LOOKING AHEAD



This weekend we’re monitoring a low pressure center moving out of the Gulf of Mexico that may clip a portion of eastern Kentucky with some rain showers Saturday but majority of us should stay dry. Models continue to track this system further and further to the east and this isn’t expected to impact Kentucky expect maybe some cloud cover.

Sunday, will be dry overall until the overnight hour when a boundary sweeps across the region and brings some rain showers activity. However it’s not until Monday afternoon and Monday overnight when a strong cold front moves across the Bluegrass when a large amount of precipitations is expected plus another 15 to possible 20 degrees temperatures drop.
