Mainly Rain, but…

Forecast radar using the NAM/WRF model guidance shows mainly rain for Southern Kentucky - however, temperature profiles close to freezing above us may produce some sleet or snow mixed in with the rain.

MORNING NOWCAST:
A mainly clear start followed by increasing clouds.
8am: Clear 28°
10am: Mainly Sunny 35°
12 Noon: Partly Cloudy 42°

A MIXED BAG:
After a sunny start, clouds increase as a system approaches from the west. Expect moisture to move into South-Central Kentucky during the evening with a mix of rain, sleet, and wet snow to start. There could minor accumulations of snow and sleet – mainly on grass and mainly north of Bowling Green – before all precip goes over to rain tonight. Roads should stay just wet with whatever falls as evening readings remain above freezing. Rain tapers off to light rain showers or drizzle Saturday afternoon. Highs today and Saturday should reach the low to mid 40s.

Colder air returns Saturday night into Sunday. Any leftover moisture from our departing system Saturday night could go over to some light snow before it ends. No significant snow accumulation is expected, however. It looks quite cold but for Bowling Green’s Christmas Parade Sunday afternoon at 2pm.
