Temperatures have been warming quickly again today thanks to the abundant sunshine and southerly wind. We started the day on a fairly mild note with most temperatures bottoming out in the upper 50s. Some cooler spots included the Lakes Region getting down into the upper 40s or low 50s. The MaxTrack remains clear…for now.
As we move into the later afternoon and evening, clouds will continue to increase as the cold front creeps closer. The first showers will start showing in the northwestern counties by dinnertime or a little after. The time slot for the Bluegrass and Lakes Region will be around midnight and into the early morning hours. Eastern and Southeastern counties will have to wait until the mid through late morning hours for rain to arrive. By the mid-afternoon Wednesday, the rain will be primarily east of I-75 and will clear the state by about 8:00 pm. Skies will already begin clearing from the west as high pressure quickly sets up again. The main difference will be the cool down. Temperatures will be dropping into the low 60s and even upper 50s for the end of the week. This is normal for early November but will still shock the system due to the unseasonable warmth so far this week. Overnight lows and morning temperatures will be cold and only a few degrees above the freezing mark. Temperatures will recover a little going into the weekend, but the next front brings showers Saturday and Sunday with a subsequent cool down for early next week.
