Busy Forecast Today

Cold Front Today

The rain worked through the area much faster than expected this morning. The rain should be finished for the day for Marshall County. Draffenville ended up with a whopping 0.01″ of rain at the Kentucky Mesonet site.

We should remain under mostly cloudy skies for most of the day. The temperature may rise a few degrees this morning, but overall I expect the high to be around 59°. The front should pass through around noon, dropping temperatures some this afternoon.

Overnight lows will drop to around 35° under partly cloudy skies.

Nice Friday

High pressure will move in on Friday. This will lead to nice conditions overall. Temperatures will remain a little chillier than we’ve become accustomed to as highs will remain around 55° under sunny skies.

Friday night will bring partly cloudy skies to the area with lows around 37°.

Warm Weekend

Another warm weekend in store for the region as high pressure moves east of the region. This will place western Kentucky in a southerly surface flow. This, combined with mostly sunny skies will lead to Saturday highs around 60° followed by the low 60s on Sunday.

The above map shows temperatures on Saturday will be 8 to 10 degrees above normal!

Pattern Change Coming

A pattern change is coming after the first week of December. A cold front will move through the region December 5th. This will push much colder air into the region. This will set the stage for some chances of wintry precipitation in mid to late December. It’s way too early to get into details.

As Meteorologist Beau Dodson likes to say, it’s important to remember potential doesn’t always equal reality. Just because the setup favors snow in December, it doesn’t mean it will come to fruition. Time will tell.

That should wrap up this forecast. Check me out on Twitter and Facebook. Have a great day!
