Dry today, wet tomorrow!

High pressure will be. dominating your Friday, keeping our region dry and sunny! Daytime temperatures will be flirting with the mid 60s so definitely take advantage of these spring-like conditions if you can! We go to sleep to temps in the mid to upper 40s so it’ll be a chilly late night and early morning Saturday. Enjoy this break because it doesn’t last long as we are watching the potential for scattered showers to roll in through the region before 1pm. Afterwards though, expect clouds to clear out some for a partly cloudy and mostly dry remainder of your afternoon! Sunday also looks dry with highs in the mid 60s again!

Be safe and have a great weekend!

Partly cloudy and breezy today!

Clouds will be on the increasing side as a cold front passes through the area. Isolated showers are possible throughout the afternoon, though we are not expecting a complete washout. After your dinner time though, expect rain chances to decrease significantly as clearing occurs. The high for today is 60 and the low is 45. It will feel a little cooler than what we’ve been seeing lately! Definitely bring a jacket with you if you are headed out the door during your late night and early morning.

As always, be safe and have a great Wednesday!

Today in Weather History

Good afternoon, everyone!

On this day, in 1999, Texas witnessed a remarkable hailstorm that stretched as far as two miles wide. These storms had impressive downdrafts with winds peaking around 80 miles per hour, causing for golfball-sized hail to pelt houses, breaking windows and impairing wooden structures. Fortunately, no lives were lost. However, up to 60 families were displaced due to damage to households, mainly mobile homes.

Have a great day!

Plentiful sunshine & warm!

We catch a break from the rain today as the system moves eastward. Though this may be the case, we cannot rule out the chance for isolated showers to pop up throughout the region. Daytime temperatures will feel warm with highs flirting with the lower 80s. We go to sleep to the lower 60s with winds out of the south giving us a warm kick. Overall we look at another good chance of scattered showers on Saturday before ending the weekend on a dry note Sunday. Temperature readings for this weekend cool down just a bit but we remain seasonable!

Dry Trend to Come to an End

Good evening, everyone! We hope that you have soaked up some sun so far this week!

Tomorrow, we will have another sunny day, with clouds increasing as we approach nightfall. Into the overnight hours, showers and storms are anticipated to enter our area. However, we can’t rule out a pop-up shower in the evening ahead of the cold front. As of now, precipitation totals aren’t expected to exceed a quarter of an inch, though locally higher values are possible with thunderstorms. On the morning commute, you may have to use those windshield wipers, and don’t forget to stay cautious of slippery roads.

That’s all for today! Have a great rest of your day!

A beautiful start to the work week!

Get ready for a dry and sunny start to the work week as a high pressure system continues to dominate the region. Seasonably mild temperatures will continue on into today, with a high near 71F and a low of 51F. Mild conditions continue on into this week, but definitely take advantage of the dry start because we are tracking yet another round of rain to make its way into south central KY. Currently these rain probabilities are looking more like isolated showers into Tuesday night. Winds will be out of the SSW giving us a warm kick throughout the day!

Stay safe and have a wonderful Monday!
