It’s been an unseasonably cool November so far across Kentucky and Southern Indiana, but it looks like we may actually see a few days of milder weather this week, although it will come at a price which is usually the case this time of the year. Clouds will stick around into Tuesday as another weak wave of energy slides through the region bring a few spotty showers with it. Once that system exits, high pressure to our south will take over with a nice Wednesday expected as highs jump back into the upper 50s and low 60s as a southwest wind picks up ahead of our late week storm system.
As a cold front slides into our area Thursday, temperatures should jump into the low to mid-60s for highs before the rain arrives as the day wears on. It looks like you’ll need the rain gear as we close out the week as the shower chances look to stick around. Even though the front will be to our south, another wave of low pressure should be riding along it, which should keep the rain around into the weekend. The models are struggling with just how far north the low-pressure center will be, which will have an impact on how long the rain hangs around but the data is more in sync with the rain ending now by Saturday afternoon. Temperatures will cool off into the 40s on Saturday as this system departs before afternoon highs moderate back into the 50s into early next week.
TONIGHT: Cloudy and chilly. Low: 37. Wind: SW 5 mph.
TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy with spotty showers. High: 52. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny and milder. High: 60. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
