Chilly Halloween On the Way

Good morning, Kentucky! I hope everyone had a great weekend and start to the work week. If your costume doesn’t include several warm layers, you might need to consider changing it because we have a chilly Halloween on the way. I’ve got all the details in the post below!

Halloween is almost here! (Giphy)

Gloomy Tuesday

Today we will reach the low-60s under overcast skies. A slight chance of spotty showers will last throughout the day but should only result in trace amounts if anything. Our overnight low will drop to the low-50s before more precipitation makes its way into our area tomorrow.

We won’t be impacted by it today, but that cold front is setting up and will cause changes in our weather over the next 48-72 hours.

Damp Wednesday

Rain returns to the forecast on Wednesday with showers entering the area around mid-day thanks to a stationary front parked across Kentucky. As of right now, rain totals are between 0.5-1″ but we will keep an eye on those amounts to see how they change.

Wednesday should start off dry but transition to rain by early afternoon. (COD)

Wednesday’s showers look to stick around until the evening. We may see a break in the evening but another round could kick off after midnight and carry us through the night. High temperatures tomorrow will reach the mid-60s and the overnight low will drop to the upper-50s. Although tomorrow will be wet, at least it won’t be cold. Pack that rain gear!

Bitter Halloween

A strong cold front will pass through on Thursday afternoon. Strong, chilling northwest winds will enter the Commonwealth and cause temperatures to drop much lower than what we have seen so far this season.

A cold front passing through on Thursday afternoon will make for a bitter Halloween. (COD)

This front will also accompany additional rain showers and thunderstorms starting Thursday morning. As of right now, it looks like the rain should clear out in time for trick-or-treating.

The SPC currently has the wxornotBG area under a Marginal Risk (1/5) for severe weather on Thursday. (COD)

If your kids are headed out trick-or-treating, make sure they are bundled up. Temperatures Thursday night could drop to the low-30s.  The potential for snow flurries has been put on the table, but the ground is still very warm

Bundle up. It’s going to be a chilly Halloween! (Giphy)

That concludes today’s post! Have a great day and remember to follow @wxornotBG on Twitter for live updates on this week’s rain and temperature drop. Happy (almost) Halloween!

A cloudy, quiet Tuesday will be followed by a very active pattern, complete with rounds of showers & storms Wednesday through Halloween.Details in this Final Finish weather update:
