A soggy Saturday followed by a temperature plunge


Temperatures were over 20 degrees cooler than the record highs experienced on Wednesday across the Bluegrass. The other big difference is, of course, the sunshine; we’ve had mostly sunny skies all day long with a weak area of high pressure in control for now.

Tonight, expect mostly clear skies with cold temperatures settling in as lows drop into the low 20s.

Friday, expect the day to start off cold and sunny as highs move towards the low 40s with increasing clouds throughout the day time hours and a rain/snow mix possibility moving in late Friday evening into Saturday morning.


A surface low with a warm front accompanied by a cold front will move through the Ohio Valley Saturday. Expect light to moderate rain showers Saturday with the majority of the rain moving out central and eastern Kentucky by the evening hours.

The rain will be an annoyance but the true power from this system will come after with a Canadian High moving in and the Jet Stream dips. Temperatures will finally start to feel like winter across much of the United States.

As we look to next week highs will only top off into the upper 20s to low 30s with overnights lows in the teens.
