Our next weather-maker is upon us and we've already started to see some rain showers move into the state and our neck of the woods. Expect light to moderate rain showers this evening and into tonight before everything wraps up around 2 am. Rain totals by pre-dawn hours Friday will only be near or slightly over a quarter of an inch and no snow accumulation is expected. What will be the worst part is the wind. Wind gusts should pick up just as the rain is falling and overnight. Gusts may get up to 30 mph so secure the loose outdoor items. Friday will turn a bit calmer. Even though we will hold onto some wind, we will eventually see some sunshine taking over with high temperatures in the upper 30s.
The weekend brings us another round of potential wintry weather with Saturday beginning on a quiet note, then a low pressure sends some more rain and possibly a mix to snow showers late in the day and night. Temperatures will be a bit below seasonable through the whole weekend with the blast of bitter Arctic air still holding off until later next week/weekend, but weather models show that it reaches Kentucky eventually. Our weather pattern will keep on the active side from now through the next couple of weeks at least.
