Temperatures have cooled about 20-25 degrees across the Commonwealth, thanks to the midweek cold front. We’re running in the upper 40s and 50s. With a blast of wind every once in a while, things feel even cooler. The rain has started to move out and we are looking at a dry end to the week as temperatures slowly climb into the weekend.

Rain showers and thunderstorms arrived overnight with the cold front. Rain amounts were generous in the Bluegrass and in the Cumberlands totaling around an inch. Other locations rounded around a half inch to 0.75.” The rain is out today, but the cool is just starting. The midweek front has dropped temperatures about 20 degrees or more and will keep us down for a few days. Overnight lows will dip into the 30s and a frosty morning is expected Thursday as we touch 36 degrees. Temperatures will make a slow climb each afternoon going into the weekend. High pressure and a southerly wind will help boost temperature back into the 70s. The higher pressure will also be enough to keep the sunshine in place and the rain away.
