High pressure is to our southeast this morning, with a cold front draped across Indiana and Illinois to our north. Southwesterly flow will allow temperatures to rise into the low 70’s across the area. The aforementioned cold front looks to drop into our area tonight, bringing some rain and maybe a few thunderstorms with it.

Once the front moves through this evening and overnight, cold air will infiltrate the region behind the front. Winds will be northerly with highs for Friday in the upper 40’s/low 50’s, and overnight lows diving into the upper 20’s.

I’m sure by now most of you have heard something about snow Saturday into Sunday. As of right now, we can’t definitively say that we will or won’t get snow – it’s still a little too early to tell. With that being said, models continue to align with the idea of a swath of the white stuff moving through this weekend.

The greatest potential for accumulating snow looks to be across southern Kentucky/northern Tennessee. As far as timing goes, the majority of the snow would fall Saturday night and into the overnight hours before tapering off Sunday morning. Accumulation amounts? It’s anyone’s guess at this point, but 1-3″, perhaps a bit more, can’t be ruled out. We’ll continue to watch this “thing” evolve and update you as necessary.
