Mainly clear to partly cloudy skies this morning with temperatures in the 40s and 50s.
RED FLAG WARNING for Christian, Hopkins, McLean, Muhlenberg and Todd counties Noon – 7pm today…
FREEZE WATCH in effect for Taylor, Adair, and Russell counties in Kentucky…FREEZE ADVISORY for Clay, Macon, Robertson and Sumner counties in Tennessee late tonight into Wednesday morning
ANOTHER COOL SNAP:
The week started on a gorgeous note with more sunshine and pleasantly warm readings Monday. A weak cold front moved through late last night with nothing more than just a few clouds. However, this front has brought in a cool air mass that will settle into the region for a few days. Despite lots of sunshine, highs today will struggle to reach the lower 60s with a rather stiff northwest wind at times. As winds die down tonight there is a chance for some frost and even a light freeze (especially in eastern sections) under a clear sky. Readings will drop into the low to mid 30s Wednesday morning, and widespread low 30s anticipated for low temps Thursday morning. A Freeze Watch is up for a few of the far eastern portions of the WBKO viewing area for early Wednesday morning, and we could see frost advisories go up for other parts of the area for Wednesday and Thursday mornings. A hard freeze (temps below 28°) is NOT expected at this time.
LATE WEEK WARMUP:
Temperatures will begin moderating Thursday as a more southerly wind flow takes hold. We should be back to near seasonal readings Friday before upper 70s and low 80s return to the area over the weekend into early next week. At this time, only slight chances for isolated showers and thunderstorms are in play for the weekend, with a bit better shot at rain Monday.
