Friday Afternoon Update


This Afternoon – Sunny & Very Nice! – High 58˚ / Tonight – Partly Cloudy – Low 35˚

Nothing but sunshine has been the story up to this point, and you can expect much of the same through the remainder of the afternoon.  

High pressure continues to dominate south central Kentucky, with light winds allowing for temperatures to climb into the mid – upper 50s across the region.  Here’s a look at how the current conditions are shaping up:

Sat – Partly Sunny – High 60˚ / Sat Night – Scat’d Rain & Snow Showers – Low 34˚

Our next weather maker will close in from the west as we kickoff the weekend.  A mix of sun & clouds will join us through the first part of the day, with increasing clouds on tap for the afternoon and evening.

On Saturday night, this system (in the form of a cold front) will propagate eastward across the region.  Available, depleted moisture will coincide with the forcing from this boundary to fire off isolated to scattered rain showers across the region.

This event will not produce anything significant, with light rainfall amounts only reaching .10-.25″, if anything at all.  The NAM simulated radar model below is valid for midnight Sunday, and paints light precip across the viewing area.  With temperatures forecast to hover just above freezing, a few snow flakes can’t be ruled out.  Again…this should NOT be anything to worry about:

Amen. Don't forget to "spring forward" those clocks one hour Sunday morning!

High pressure will once again take over as the cold front continues to propagate to our east.  Partly to mostly sunny skies will make for nice conditions, although a cool down will be in store, as northwesterly winds filter in across south central Kentucky.  We’ll keep conditions calm and quiet Sunday night, as high pressure continues to claim authority.

The early part of next week looks to be mouth-watering.  Rays of sunshine will continue to extend their stay, as temperatures values rebound back into the low – mid 60s.  Our pattern will turn cooler as we get into the middle next week, as a trough orients itself across the region, meaning a return to an active pattern.

That will wrap up the forecast posts for the work week, folks.  As always, stay in touch with @WarrenCountyWx & @WxOrNotBG with for the latest in real-time weather information.  Ryan Difani will be here all weekend to keep you up to date  Have a great weekend!  Thanks for reading.
