Forecast: A little cooler, a little drier to end the week

Good Thursday evening! The rain from earlier has moved out and we’re going to see some gradual clearing as we round out the work week! For this evening, we’ll still see a few clouds in the sky but we won’t have any rain falling from those clouds. Temperatures will drop into the 30s as we head into the late-evening hours.Planner


As the clouds clear out, temperatures will continue to drop, meaning we’ll see some temperatures just below freezing…which means you’ll need to bundle up if you’re heading outside!Explainer


We’re in for cooler temperatures to end the work week…highs will only rise into the low 40s. Once again, though, we’ll stay dry. We’ll see a few more clouds move in, though, as a disturbance passes to our south, keeping the rain away from South Central Kentucky.

The weekend and beyond:

The dry weather hangs around for the start of the weekend, but so do the cool temperatures, with Saturday’s highs only rising to around the 40-degree mark. Morning lows on Saturday will drop into the low 20s while Sunday morning’s low will dip a few degrees below freezing. We’ll see warming temperatures Sunday, with highs rising to the low 50s and Monday afternoon’s high rising to the upper 50s.

The next chance of rain arrives Sunday as another cold front pushes into the area Sunday night into Monday. It still appears some of the rain could be heavy at times, so we’ll have to watch for the possibility of flooding issues for some areas.

After the cold front leaves the area, we’ll dry out late Monday but we’ll see cooler temperatures…afternoon highs will get knocked down into the upper 40s as yet another disturbance brings us additional rain chances Wednesday. Morning lows stay just above freezing, however, through mid-week.7 Day
