Soak up the sun

Temperatures are up…for now
Posted at 1:36 PM, Jan 13, 2021

It’s a wonderful day with abundant sunshine and temperatures warming above seasonal normal. High pressure and a southwesterly wind are responsible. Temperatures will warm to the upper 40s this afternoon with a few spots in the south/southeast reaching 50. Precipitation takes a break midweek.

Thursday will prove to be another nice one with temperatures warming further to hot or surpass 50 degrees in the afternoon. This will occur under a mix of sun and clouds as the next storm system approaches. Clouds will increase late Thursday with scattered rain showers arriving right before midnight and into early Friday morning. Temperatures at this time will be in the low to middle 40s which means the initial line will be only rain. After the front passes and pushes the rain out of Kentucky, temperatures will fall, even with the sun rising. We will warm up to the low 40s Friday afternoon with isolated rain or snow showers forming as leftover moisture hangs around. Temperatures will continue to plummet into Saturday morning back down to the upper 20s and highs will not be able to make it much above freezing. Leftover moisture will produce minor flurry or light snow showers through the day Saturday. Early snowfall projections look to be minor but will need to be watched. Clouds hang tough through the weekend and temperatures hang close to freezing both weekend afternoons.
