A gorgeous Sunday is on the way, but there are some rain threats and slightly colder air in the extended forecast.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Temperatures are already crashing. Skies are totally clear and there’s no concern about rain.
Winds are very light, which allows us to fall to a low of 31° Sunday morning. If you’re up late, the Leonid meteor shower is nearing its peak. It’s also a gorgeous display Monday morning, just before dawn. The waning moon won’t help you see shooting stars, and neither will city lights, but some can still be seen with a clear sky.
Sunday gets off to a chilly start, but rebounds in a hurry. We’re bumping up our high to 59° but some clouds in Kentucky make it feel a bit cooler. There’s a very slim chance of a sprinkle by Monticello; besides that, we’re totally dry.
Average high: 60°
Average low: 38°
Think of most of the upcoming week’s forecast as a ‘holding pattern.’ We don’t have any major warm-ups or cold fronts. There’s no huge rain event, and we’re staving off the snow for a while.
Monday could deliver a few sprinkles, but mainly in southeastern Kentucky counties. You’ll get on-and-off clouds and slightly cooler weather, compared to the warmer and sunny weekend.
A really week two-pronged system brings a couple of sprinkles Monday and Tuesday to our northern 1/3 of counties.
Rain chances are a little better late Thursday into early Friday.
