Another Round of Rain Inbound

Showers fall through Thursday
Posted at 3:02 PM, Feb 03, 2021

The past day or so has given us a nice break from the winter weather, but it has still felt very winter-like out there today even with the help of the sunshine. We will remain dry through this evening and overnight, but another low pressure is moving from the west and will arrive toward midday Thursday. This will mainly be a rain event for the Commonwealth, but just like most systems, the cold air could arrive just in time to change some of the rain over to a light wintry mix late Thursday night into Friday morning. At this time, rain totals through the day Thursday look to be between a quarter and half an inch and any snow we see will likely be minimal.

Once we get past this weather-maker, we will quiet down again with our next round of precipitation not arriving until late in the weekend. The Arctic blast we've been mentioning will likely slow down, stay north, and won't reach Kentucky until later next week. Until then, our high temperatures will rest in the 30s this weekend and early next week and low temperatures will dip to the low 20s. Eventually, that bitter cold air will arrive, but it's looking more like later next week.
