The last shortwave along the back side of the upper level cut-off low over the upper Midwest was over central Illinois and Indiana earlier this morning and has continued to dive southward towards Cincinnati. In return, cloud cover has continued into the afternoon hours and will hang tough into the early evening. As the low continues its slow progression northeastward, conditions across the Commonwealth will begin to clear from west to east.
By tonight, skies will be mostly clear as the surface high pressure moves into our area. In return cool overnight lows will be anticipated as temperatures drop into the upper 30’s to around 40 degrees. As we look to wrap up the weekend, Sunday appears to be a start of a very nice stretch of fall time weather for the Bluegrass. The stubborn ridge will hang tough over the region bringing sunny and warmer conditions over the next few days. In general, highs should remain in the low to mid 70’s with overnight lows in the 50’s with sunny conditions.
