Dry and Cooler Conditions for Now…

Flash Flood Warnings continue for several rivers in our region. Warnings for the Green River at Woodbury and at Rochester continue until Monday at 12:20 AM CST. Here is a look at the river gauges for those two spots.

Flooding at Woodbury and at Rochester is expected to stay within the minor range. This means that low laying fields, properties, or roads along the Green River at these two locations could experience some minor flooding until late Monday evening as the river settles back below flood stage.


A cold polar airmass descends on the region for the start to your weekend bringing much cooler temperatures than what we started with at the beginning of the week. That airmass moves out of the region by Sunday, placing us in the return flow region of the high pressure. This will warm our temperatures slightly but also will bring about our next chance of rain as well. Rain showers will start shortly after daybreak on Sunday, and will be on the increase throughout the day. Prior to the onset of the rain on Sunday temperatures could cause a brief period of glaze to form on elevated or metal surfaces. The main threat for this looks brief and sets up to the west of I-65. Warm air aloft will then quickly transition the precipitation type to all rain. Another brief period of glaze could be possible for the far northern counties as the main shield of rain moves out. But this depends on several factors including how much moisture remains and what will the temperatures be around that time? Unsettled weather continues into the start of the workweek.


Tonight- Lows in the 20s under Partly Cloudy skies.

Saturday- Sunny, Highs in the low 40s with windchills in the teens possible.

Saturday Night- Lows hover around 30 degrees with increasing clouds ahead of the next system.
