Tracking a cold morning with patchy fog around. Other than the abundance of cloud coverage there’s really not much pizazz to the forecast today. Temperatures are a little warmer compared to yesterday, so the chance for freezing fog is less. That being said, if you’re planning to drive soon, keep an eye on the car thermometer just in case. Or, download the FREE StormTracker Weather App for your smart device to get the current temperature where you’re at!

Clouds are already abundant, but the ones present are your typical morning fog or morning moisture layer. Eventually the low lying clouds will break and you may see some sunshine before the high altitude clouds roll in. Regardless, everyone will be firmly under the clouds as we move into the afternoon hours. This is due to the cold front arriving tomorrow. Rain showers are back in the forecast and will arrive overnight. Showers will be spotty, but light to moderate. Continued showers through the day on Monday will keep things bleak. That’s okay though. Let’s get the nasty weather out of the way before Thanksgiving, and more importantly, Thanksgiving travel! Good news for everyone traveling this Thanksgiving, road conditions will be favorable as no precipitation is expected after Tuesday morning. In fact the sun comes out and lasts through the end of the week!


The best news is that precipitation looks to be limited or even non-existent depending on when you decide to travel.


Morning showers will be possible as a reinforcing cold front continues precipitation. The best chances will be further east from the Bluegrass and mainly in the form of rain. A few scattered showers will fall and where temperatures near freezing some rain/snow mix or even flurries may fall. We’re not expecting any accumulation, but roads will likely be slippery and wet. As we move through Tuesday, clouds remain, but roads will dry. Temperatures will be cold, only reaching the low 40s for the afternoon.


No precipitation expected as high pressure sets up shop and clear out the clouds. The added sunshine in the afternoon will allow temperatures to warm slightly, but it will still be a cold start and a chilly finish. Roads will be dry all day so this will be prime for Thanksgiving travel for those leaving the state.

Thanksgiving Day:

For those traveling the day of and mainly short distances, Thanksgiving morning will be seasonal. Temperatures will run around freezing when heading out the door, so ice on the windshields may be the only thing you have to battle. Otherwise, you’re looking at a clear day with a cold start. By the time you’re finishing up the best meal of the year, you’ll be delighted to know you can burn off the extra calories with the kiddos with outdoor activities! Mild temperatures are expected in the afternoon under plenty of sun for Turkey Day.
