Cloudy with areas of dense fog and rain developing.
6am: Cloudy, Areas of Fog/Rain 50°
8am: Cloudy, Areas of Fog/Rain 53°
10am: Scat’d Showers 58°

SOGGY DAY AHEAD:
A warm front is moving northward through the region this morning bringing dense fog and another round of rain. The heaviest and steadiest rains – along with some rumbles of thunder – arrive this evening as low pressure moves right over us. Many areas will pick up an additional 1-2″ of rain by Saturday morning. It will be breezy and much warmer thanks to south winds. Expect highs to soar into the mid to upper 60s with mild lows only in the upper 50s tonight.

CHRISTMAS PARADE WEEKEND:
The forecast for Saturday’s parades looks better overall. At this time, it appears rain is likely early Saturday morning before it ends late morning. The rest of the weekend looks dry. We’ll have an early day high in the lower 60s Saturday before readings fall into the upper 40s late day. Highs Sunday will be seasonably cool in the lower 50s.

NEXT WEEK:
A fairly quiet period of weather will be with us Monday through Thursday. Afternoon highs Monday will be near normal in the lower 50s before dropping into the upper 40s by the middle of the week. Lows will range from the upper 20s to mid 30s.

DREARY AND COOL TUESDAY:
Low clouds will linger as the arctic front that came through early Monday morning gets hung up just to our southeast. This keeps some light rain showers and drizzle around with the best chances mainly along and east of I-65. Highs will top out in the upper 40s and begin to rise tonight into early Wednesday. Expect mostly cloudy skies through Wednesday morning, although some sun may return by Wednesday afternoon. There is just a slight chance for a bit of light rain to linger over mainly far eastern sections into Wednesday morning.

MORE UNSETTLED WEATHER:
We’ll catch a break in the wet weather late Wednesday through Thursday morning before more rain returns Thursday afternoon with the arrival of our next system. At least we stay mild through late week, with highs mainly in the 50s and overnight readings staying well above freezing. A good chance of rain is expected Friday as the system parks over the region. Rainfall amounts of up to an inch are possible.

CHRISTMAS PARADE WEEKEND:
It looks mild for Saturday’s Christmas parades, although a few showers may linger Saturday morning as Friday’s system slowly exits to the east. The rest of the weekend appears mainly dry at this time. Highs will remain in the 50s through Monday.

A WINDY, WARM START:
A strong cold front moves through today with gusty winds up to 45 mph if not higher!

A few scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible with some late day sun likely. Once the cold front passes, temperatures will take a tumble into the 30s tonight.

TRENDING COOLER:
Temperatures will fall back below seasonal average for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the mid to upper 40s – that’s around 10° below average. While Tuesday will be sunny, a weak disturbance will bring a slight chance of a rain or snow shower Wednesday evening but no impacts are forecast.

THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND:
Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday will continue to be cool but mainly sunny with highs in the mid 40s. The next chance for a shower will come as southerly breezes bring a slight chance of rain for Saturday night and Sunday but highs will rise into the mid 50s.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING
Clear and very cold.
6am: Clear 25°
8am: Clear 30°
10am: Sunny 37°

A FINE FRIDAY:
Sunshine continues as the work week comes to a close. We’ll warm up just a bit today with readings climbing into the upper 40s. A few more clouds roll in tonight with milder lows only in the mid to upper 30s as a south wind picks up.

WARM, WET AND WINDY WEEKEND:
The warming trend kicks into a higher gear this weekend but we will have to contend with unsettled weather. Saturday will be the better of the two weekend days with just a slight chance for an isolated rain shower (mainly northwest of Bowling Green). A strong cold front approaches Sunday, bringing with it a better likelihood for widespread rain and thunderstorms along with gusty winds of 30-40mph! Rainfall amounts could exceed a half-inch for most. Highs climb from the 40s Friday into the upper 50s Saturday and then 60s Sunday!

THANKSGIVING WEEK:
Monday starts wet before colder, drier air rolls in late Monday into Tuesday. Highs fall from the upper 50s Monday into the 40s Tuesday into Wednesday. At this time, the region appears dry for any travel plans you may have leading up to Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Day looks mainly dry but a weak system could bring a chance of a rain or snow shower by Thursday night.

WARMER BUT UNSETTLED WEEKEND:
The warming trend resumes Friday into the weekend, but we will have to contend with unsettled weather. Saturday looks like the better of the two weekend days, with just a slight chance for a few light showers (mainly west of Bowling Green). A strong cold front approaches Sunday, bringing with it a better likelihood for widespread rain and thunderstorms along with gusty winds. Highs climb from the 40s Friday into the 50s Saturday and then 60s Sunday!

THANKSGIVING WEEK:

WINDY, WARMER WEDNESDAY:
Arctic air retreats today allowing temperatures to warm quite a bit as a strong southwest wind (which may gust to near 30 mph at times) takes over. Highs will climb into the upper 40s, nearly 20 degrees warmer than Tuesday, with increasing clouds. A weak cold front slides through tonight with nothing more than a few clouds. We stay dry Thursday, although it will be slightly colder, with highs dropping back to the low 40s.

WET WEEKEND:
The warming trend resumes Friday into the weekend, but we will have to contend with unsettled weather. The first of several chances for rain enters the picture Friday evening, with better chances for showers Saturday. A stronger disturbance approaches Sunday, bringing with it a chance for thunderstorms along with gusty winds. Highs climb from the 40s Friday into the 50s Saturday and then 60s Sunday!

Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered flurries. Very cold.
6am: Breezy with Flurries 16°
8am: Partly Cloudy 18°
10am: Mostly Sunny 22°

BIG ARCTIC CHILL:
A frigid air mass for November standards is now settling into the region. Brace yourself for near zero and single digit wind chills through the morning! Overnight lows plunged into the teens but the wind will make it feel like it’s zero at times! Today could be our coldest November 18th ever, even despite some sun at times. Our all-time coldest high temperature for this day is 28, set way back in 1880. We’re calling for highs only in the mid to upper 20s. It remains very cold tonight under fair skies.

A WARMING TREND:
Temperatures moderate mid to late week as southerly winds take over. Wednesday and Thursday appear dry, with highs recovering into the 40s as arctic air retreats. By Friday, we see our next chance for precipitation, perhaps starting as a light wintry mix to close out the week. It’s then rain – and maybe even a thunderstorm or two – Saturday into Sunday as warmer air surges northward. Highs climb to near 55 Saturday and into the low 60s for Sunday and Monday!
