LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) — FORECAST SUMMARY
With a frontal system draped along the Ohio River on Sunday, much of Kentuckiana saw temperatures overachieve a bit with highs into the upper 50s to around 60 degrees as the cooler air remained on the north side of the front. This system will stay put over the region into Monday as the front drifts to the south and a wave of energy moves through Kentuckiana. This will allow cooler air to filter in along with some moisture north of the boundary. As a result, expect a cool and damp start to Thanksgiving week with a few scattered showers from time to time as afternoon highs only reach the mid to upper 40s. Even with the front expected to move to our east by Tuesday, clouds will linger for much of the day as temperatures remain below average into the mid-40s for highs.
The good news is that heading toward the big travel day on Wednesday and Thanksgiving, we are looking at tranquil weather across Kentuckiana. Highs will be in the low and mid-50s on Wednesday and Thursday with some sunshine, so we are looking pretty good for the holiday. Heading into Black Friday, a fast-moving system will slide into the Ohio Valley so our rain chances will increase by late Friday. It now appears the majority of the rain will fall Friday night and early Saturday, so conditions should improve by Saturday afternoon. That’s good news for the Cats and the Cards football game on Saturday evening. Highs will be in the upper 50s to around 60 degrees with the quiet weather continuing through Sunday before another wave brings more shower chances by Sunday evening.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a few showers. Low: 38. Wind: N 5 mph.
MONDAY: Cloudy with scattered showers. High: 47. Wind: N 5-10 mph.
