Skies remain cloudy over the area with temperatures struggling to reach 40 degrees. Some areas will warm into the low 40s this afternoon, but many will not. A few light drizzle or mix showers are possible today, but don’t count on much. Winds out of the north 5-10 making it feel slightly cooler at times.

A strong low continues to dive south through the Plains today and looks to undercut the Ohio and Kentucky River Valleys to the south. Highest precipitation chances with both rain and snow will stay south of us, but we could see some of the showers bleed into South Kentucky. The rest of Wednesday will be cloudy with only small hints of sunshine and will continue to be cold. Most of Thursday remains dry, cloudy, and cold. Later in the evening, a few of the rain/snow showers will begin to bubble up from the south. Showers will continue, with mostly snow, through the morning and early afternoon on Friday. Areas that will receive any precipitation will primarily be south of I-64. Early estimates on rain and snow amounts look to be trace amounts. However, this will need to be monitored as amounts could get higher. Temperatures will take a dip after the low exits east. We will drop into the mid-30s Saturday with overnight lows getting close to 20 degrees. More sunshine should be available this weekend as high pressure separates two storm systems.
