FLOOD WARNING for Butler, Muhlenberg, Ohio, and Warren Counties for areas near the Green River.
Clouds and flurries mainly east of I-65 this morning while clearing will take place west of Bowling Green and gradually move east.
THE SUN RETURNS!
A big upper level low pressure center will slowly move east of us today. Clouds begin to move away this morning paving the way for abundant sunshine to return. However, with a chilly northwest wind, we will only warm into the lower 40s. Warmer air moves in Thursday with winds turning more from the south which will help readings return to the 50s.
Quiet weather continues Friday into Saturday, with just a small cooldown to end the work week before somewhat milder temps move in for the weekend. We should top out in the upper 40s to near 50 Friday with low to mid 50s expected Saturday. We still look good for Hometown Christmas Parades Saturday, with fair skies expected before clouds move in Saturday night and rain showers move in Sunday. The chance for rain continues into Monday, with a possible changeover to some light snow Monday evening as much colder air arrives early next week.
Gradual Clearing…High 43, winds W-5
Clear and Cold…Low 24, winds Calm
Sunny and Warmer…High 52, winds SW-5
THE WORK WEEK AHEAD
After many days of practically ideal weather, some cloudiness is moving into the region from a tropical disturbance spinning over the southeastern U.S. This disturbance slowly heads northward over the next couple of days. While it may spin some more clouds into the region today there’s only an outside chance for an isolated shower exists over far eastern/southeastern sections near Lake Cumberland. Temps could be a little cooler but still above seasonal averages (upper 70s). We’ll have similar readings Wednesday, and while much of that day appears dry, our best shower chances in a couple of weeks show up Wednesday night into Thursday as a cold front moves through. Cooler, more seasonal air takes over behind this system for Thursday and Friday.
EARLY LOOK AT THE WEEKEND
At this time, it looks like we’re going to follow up a brilliant weekend of weather with yet another brilliant weekend of weather! Lots of sunshine is expected both Saturday and Sunday, with highs in the upper 60s to near 70 Saturday before some warming takes place late in the weekend.
Partly Sunny, Showers SE…High 76, winds E-6
Partly Cloudy, Showers SE…Low 54, winds Calm
Partly Sunny, Chance of Showers…High 77, winds SW-6
Rain Chance 20% – Rain Amount .05″
