LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) — FORECAST SUMMARY

You’ll need the rain gear as we close out the week across Kentuckiana and head into the upcoming weekend. An area low pressure will spin up through the Kentucky from the southwest over the next few days keeping our weather wet and unsettled. Other than a few isolated showers, it should be dry overnight before the rain chances begin to ramp up as we hit daybreak on Friday. With plenty of moisture associated with this system, we could see around 1” of rain in several locations by the time the rain moves out late Saturday. It looks like if you are headed out for any holiday shopping or other festivities into the weekend, plan on damp weather here in Kentuckiana.

The good news is that temperatures will stay above average for this time of December with highs into the low and mid-50s through the weekend so that eliminates any concern for wintry weather. By Sunday, it should be a decent finish to the weekend with partly cloudy skies and highs remaining in the 50s. Slightly cooler air will arrive for early next week with the dry weather persisting with highs in the mid-40s and a few chilly mornings as lows drop back into the upper 20s. Our next chance for rain next week may not be until Thursday with a few isolated showers possible and highs back in the 50s.
