After morning rain, a blustery Monday afternoon

We'll experience all four seasons for the first full week of December.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Early morning thunderstorms brought much needed rain to the region. These storms were associated with a strong cold front moving through the Ohio Valley and we’ll feel the impacts of it all day. Morning rain gradually tapers off after sunrise from west to east, but windy conditions will persist through the rest of the day. Temperatures fall during the day as well leaving us with blustery conditions as northwest winds blow 15-25 mph with gusts upwards of 30 mph possible. Highs only in the low/middle 40s with wind chill values in the low/mid 30s – bundle up. Clouds decrease as rain ends, so we’ll actually see a good bit of sunshine for the daytime.

After some brief clearing clouds will increase again tonight, but we stay dry. Winds calm down and blow from the north at 5 mph as cold air settles in leaving us in the lower and middle 20s for lows Tuesday morning. Expect mostly cloudy and cold weather Tuesday as highs struggle to reach the middle and upper 30s for highs.

The forecast for the rest of the week is a bit tricky as we’ll experience quite a whiplash of weather. Tuesday night into Wednesday morning have trended drier, but light snow showers will be possible mainly along and north of I-64. Accumulations unlikely, but a light dusting is certainly possible on grassy surfaces in Indiana. Models indicate more rain possible Thursday and Friday with rain likely Friday night and into Saturday as temperatures again surge into the lower and middle 60s.


TODAY: Morning rain, falling temperatures with sunnier afternoon. Temps: 40s, feels like low/mid 30s.° Wind: NW 10-15 Gusting 25+ mph.

TONIGHT: Increasing clouds and colder. Low: 26° Wind: N 5 mph.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy, much colder, slight chance for snow overnight. High: 37°. Wind: Light & Variable.
