As we progress into the afternoon, temperatures will warm nicely into the low 50s, for the northern and Bluegrass counties. If you live along the two southern parkways and south, you’ll have more cloud coverage and cooler temperatures. Rain showers should hold off most of the day, if not all day. This is due to the new storm path expected. Instead of a straight shot across the southeast, now the storm looks to jog back into the Gulf of Mexico before crossing Florida. What this means for us is a slightly lower rain chance across areas that were expecting. Now, if you live along the Tennessee and Virginia state lines, you may still receive rain tonight and tomorrow, but amounts will be less; likely running in the tenths of an inch range.
Christmas will consist of more sunshine as high pressure slides in. This also means we get a warm up. Temperatures will boost Monday into the upper 50s and we’re still expecting 60 degrees Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. That with sunshine will make for nice travel conditions and nice outdoor weather. Temperatures remain high through the end of the week. The next rain maker will be a small front looking to bring scattered rain showers Saturday night into Sunday morning next weekend. This one will bring temperatures down, closer to average.
