After a sunny and seasonably cool Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday has quickly turned cloudy. This is in anticipation of the first of two waves of showers that we will see this weekend. So yes, we are tracking rain both days this weekend, but the timing will be on our side. Widespread showers and gusty winds will blow through overnight. Pops of heavy rain will be possible along with gusts up to 30 mph, especially after midnight as a cold front crosses. We are tracking this first round to taper off during the first half of Saturday. Tailgating in Louisville ahead of the Governor’s Cup could be a little cool and damp, but kickoff will be dry.

It will remain dry most of Sunday. Temperatures will be warm too. We are tracking highs in the 60s. The second batch of rain arrives late in the day. This round will have a little more of a punch. Not only will we see showers, but also a deep temperature dive. There will be the potential for this late-weekend rain to end as snow showers Monday morning.​ On the temperature side of things, a serious chill will settle in for the final days of November. We are tracking highs in the 30s early next week with lows in the lower 20s.
