Cloudy with occasional rain showers this morning.
A WET CHRISTMAS EVE:
Today will bring a few showers early in the day but the afternoon will be mostly cloudy, mild and dry. Temperatures will climb once again into the low to mid 50s. Tonight, Santa will have no trouble getting into South Central Kentucky as there will be a mostly cloudy sky and temperatures falling into the mid 30s.
Christmas Day will begin dry but by afternoon, more scattered rain showers will be possible. A deep low pressure system will move through the Dixie states bringing an outbreak of severe storms and possible tornadoes while Wintry weather will begin over parts of Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. Back in our region, temperatures look to be too warm for any snow but we will see heavy rainfall into Tuesday night as readings hold in the mid 40s.
As that deep low moves through Kentucky, we will be on the warmer side of the storm which means we will see mostly rain to start the day after Christmas. It appears that areas north and west of the Ohio River stand the best chance of receiving heavier snow while lighter amounts may occur around the Bowling Green area. The track of this system could also impact holiday travel plans over a rather large area – especially if you’re traveling to Detroit to see WKU play in the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl.
