We are caught in between two systems - a strong low of the East Coast and a major early season winter storm over the Rockies. Stubborn clouds have kept us on the cooler side today while we sit in the middle. There will be some clearing overnight with lows in the mid 50s. Then a brief warm up begins. High temperatures will jump up into the lower 80s tomorrow and Friday. Enjoy the warmth while it's here!

A big cool down is on the way as an Arctic front slices across the country. A major early season winter storm is brewing for the northern Plains. Over a foot of snow and near-blizzard conditions are possible for the Dakotas. Talk about a welcome to fall! This same system will arrive in Kentucky Friday night, but it will only bring showers and storms. Activity will wind down throughout the day on Saturday. Then we'll be sent deeper into fall with highs only in the 60s this weekend and the first opportunity for patchy frost Sunday morning. Temperatures will remain seasonal, but certainly cooler than we've been used to, through next week with highs in the 60s to near 70 degrees.
