Good morning, we are off to a chilly start today as current temperatures are still hovering in the middle 30s. A trough is currently positioned over the eastern U.S. in the upper levels of the atmosphere which is keeping a cooler air mass in place over Kentucky. Surface high pressure currently centered over the Ohio Valley will help to keep our weather calm today. Expect temperatures to make a run for the 60° mark this afternoon under mostly sunny skies.
A shortwave will begin moving through this upper-level trough tonight and this will usher in a reinforcing shot of cold air as well as a few shower chances. Expect skies to become mostly cloudy after midnight tonight with a few isolated showers possible before daybreak on Friday. Low temperatures are expected to reach the lower 40s.
