Weather the past couple of days has not been record-breaking, but definitely nice for mid December. Hang on, though, because changes are coming quickly. Tonight we will stay mostly dry, but the low pressure will begin to push a few lighter rain showers into Kentucky from the west after 4 am. High temperatures for Saturday will be around 60 degrees, so still about 15 degrees warmer than normal, but the cold front will cool us off quickly after. It certainly won't be an all-day rain, nor a wash-out. Rain totals look to only be between a few hundredths to a couple tenths of an inch by the evening. The wind will be the worst part of the front. Gusts out of the southwest are expected to get up to 35-40 mph early Saturday through the afternoon. Be sure to secure any loose Christmas decorations.
Drier weather returns for most of Sunday, but our weather pattern will become more amplified and that will send some more December-like weather our way for late Sunday with a rain/snow mix potential. It looks like this round will mainly be a cold rain event. Stay tuned, though, because more active weather will push us into mid week with a couple more potential snow-makers. High temperatures will also feel more normal or seasonable...low 40s for highs and 20s/30s for overnight lows.
