The Week Ahead: More Rain
Sitting here in my home studio watching “Ice Road Truckers” and thanking the good Lord we’re not dealing with that kind of snow, ice and cold!
While a few places north and east of Bowling Green received additional snow on Saturday, things have been pretty quiet for the weekend. A fast moving clipper system threw down a stripe of 2-4 inches of new snow from Radcliff to Bardstown and southeastward toward Danville.
While we are seeing bright sunshine today, clouds will make a comeback tonight as abundant Gulf moisture and an approaching cold front will signal a return to warm and wet times over Southern Kentucky.
MONDAY will be warmer than today thanks to southerly breezes at 15-25 mph. Rain should begin sometime around midday. Some may find some heavier downpours into Monday night with rainfall amounts up to an inch before ending around late morning Tuesday. Highs will be near 50 and will hold steady through Monday night and rise to near 55 Tuesday morning.
TUESDAY will start rainy and windy but mild with a morning high around the mid 50s before a cold front passes through and sends temperatures falling into the 30s by afternoon. It appears much of the moisture will be gone by the time enough cold air arrives for snow. Overnight lows will dip back into the 20s late Tuesday night.
WEDNESDAY will be much colder with highs in the mid 30s despite seeing a return to sunshine.
THURSDAY a southerly wind flow returns helping temperatures rise into the mid 40s.
FRIDAY another system heads our way with more rain chances. Highs will warm to near 50 but with lows only in the low 40s, any precipitation should stay in the form of rain before clearing out on Saturday.
