Calm for Wednesday before chilly and wet pattern moves in

0

It was a gloomy Election Day across the Bluegrass with light to moderate rain showers across the northern half of Kentucky. Temperatures have stayed cool and with the sun out during the afternoon hours we have started to move into the low 50s

WHAT TO EXPECT

Tonight, we continue to see decreasing clouds and overall mostly clear skies with lows in the upper 20s to low 30s with a light wind out of the northwest setting up perfect conditions for radiational cooling. Some patchy fog should be expected, expect fog if you did see rain showers today!

LOOKING AHEAD

High pressure takes control briefly for Wednesday as temperatures rebound into the upper 50s low 60s with mostly sunny skies; however late Wednesday night into Thursday more moisture moves into Kentucky.



Rain showers should be expect for most of the day Thursday with total ending up around an inch of rain with locally higher amounts. Behind the frontal boundary will be chilly air and temperatures dropping 25 to 30 degrees from the previous day.

I’m monitoring another cold front Sunday night could send us arctic air and the coldest temperatures of the season so far…
