It always seems like we get cold fronts during the night hours in Kentucky. This is likely due to the timing of progressing waves from the central United States. However, a cold front is currently moving across the state, which is leading to a very nice temperature gradient. The temperature according to the Kentucky Mesonet at Hickman, KY was 71.2°F, meanwhile the temperature at Alexandria, KY was 40.7°F. This leads to a temperature gradient of 30.5°F!
