After a very nice Thursday with sunny skies and a high near 60 a cold front will be bringing a change in temperatures to the state. Currently a trough is centered over the central US with a few disturbances riding through. Furthermore there is a surface low pressure over the Great Lakes and the aforementioned cold front extending to the south moving into Kentucky. With these small disturbances and the trough moving into Kentucky much colder air will spill in from the northwest which will set up a chilly weekend.
Temperatures especially on Saturday will be as much 10 degrees cooler than average. These disturbances moving through will bring increased cloudiness and there will be a chance for an occasional sprinkle/shower or flurry especially on Friday. By Sunday afternoon these disturbances will move off to our east as a ridge of high pressure moves toward the Ohio Valley/Mid-south region. This will provide for a brief warming trend by Sunday with some clearing especially Sunday afternoon. The next big weather maker for area looks to be sometime in the Monday-Tuesday time frame when showers and possibly a few storms will move through.
Friday: Morning low near 35. Cloudy with a 30% chance of a shower, a few flakes could mix in. Chilly with a high near 44. Northwest winds from 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Chilly and mostly cloudy; high near 36. Northwest winds from 8-14 mph.
