WNKY 40 Weather Forecast

Good Wednesday evening! We crossed the halfway mark for the work week with plenty of sun, a few clouds and warm temperatures. The frontal boundary we’ve been dealing with all week is still slowing migrating northward keeping the rain and storms out of our area. It’s also allowing the warm temperatures in the south to continue to take hold here in South Central Kentucky.Planner

For the evening hours, the temperatures will slowly fall from the upper 60s after sunset to the low 60s by midnight, all the while with a few scattered clouds. Aside from the fog that we’ll see develop later tonight, we’re looking at another night with excellent viewing conditions for the Orionids meteor shower.

On Thursday, the warmth and the sun continue to dominate with highs once again topping out around the 80-degree mark with temperatures Thursday night staying on the mild side, dropping close to the 60-degree mark.

Friday is when things change (just in time for the weekend)…although we’ll warm to the 80-degree mark once again, a powerful cold front moves into the area bringing showers and thunderstorms. We’ll see falling temperatures after the front moves in…with morning lows dropping to the upper 50s over the weekend. You’ll really feel the difference in temperatures by Saturday afternoon when highs only reach into the upper 60s.

The shower chances stay with us on a scattered to isolated basis over the weekend with highs recovering to the low 70s by Sunday. Another cold front sweeps through on Monday increasing shower and thunderstorm chances and knocking temperatures down to the mid and then low 60s by mid-week. Morning lows will cool to the upper 40s by Wednesday morning with skies finally clearing.7 Day
