Cold wave hits

Surface low pressure that has formed over Louisiana will take a NE track today and end up over central Kentucky by this evening. This has resulted in rain taking over much of the area and this will continue to do so through the night. Temperatures will remain above freezing (high of 48 today) and should result in all liquid on the precipitation front. However, do not be surprised if you see a stray flake or two late tonight/early tomorrow.

After this system passes we will be dealing with a pattern of cold, dry air. As the low pressure center continues to push along its NE track, very chilly conditions will wrap around behind it. Tomorrow will remain mostly cloudy, not allowing the sun to warm up temperatures hardly any. Expect a high tomorrow in the lower 40’s with a low tomorrow night of 25!

Once Friday rolls around, high pressure should establish itself over the area and provide mostly sunny skies the closer we get to the weekend. The cold air will remain in effect and result in highs for the weekend only topping into the lower to mid 40’s! Bundle up and stay warm as we continue our path into the first cold spell of the year.

Model displays expected precipitation amounts through tomorrow.
