Rain Ends, Temperatures Cool

Posted at 4:39 PM, Dec 15, 2018

The end is near! Rain has been filling back in across the Bluegrass this afternoon. We are in store for a soggy evening with scattered showers. This wave of activity has been producing heavy rain and even isolated thundershowers in far eastern Kentucky. We are tracking this rain to diminish after midnight. Areas of fog and cooling temperatures will follow. A stray shower could hang on around eastern Kentucky Sunday morning, otherwise the end of the weekend will be drier. Sunshine will gradually work back in and temperatures will be more “seasonal” with highs in the upper 40s.

Next week’s temperature trend will be fairly typical for this time of year. Highs will range from the mid 40s to the lower 50s. We will enjoy a dry stretch through Wednesday. Then a system will track in bringing with it widespread rain Thursday and Friday. Cold air will try to wiggle on the back side, just in time for the start of winter on Friday.
