Here we go again...today feels like yesterday and yesterday feels like the day before that. We can't seem to break this gloomy pattern. The culprit? An area of low pressure to our North and East that's influenced our weather pattern for nearly a week. This upper level disturbance will continue to bring us mostly cloudy skies this afternoon with isolated showers possible. A few peeks of sun can't be ruled out especially the farther South you go of the metro area. Any sunshine we see will help warm us to near 72 degrees this afternoon.
Once again our forecast will be dependent on that stubborn low. Mainly cloudy skies will persist and much like this afternoon, a shot at a few isolated showers can't be ruled out this evening. Temperatures will slowly settle into the mid 50's for most of Kentuckiana. Areas that clear could be a few degrees cooler.
Finally a break in this monotonous pattern arrives tomorrow, only to see another cold front inch closer to the Ohio Valley by tomorrow evening. What will this front mean for us? Well, let’s talk...Typically ahead of a cold front temperatures tend to warm...and as of now, this will be no exception as we head into tomorrow. Temperatures will jump a handful of degrees tomorrow as rain chances increase into the evening hours. Latest model data suggests dew point readings will increase into the 60's which leads me to believe that an unstable atmosphere is likely to develop. Does this mean widespread showers and storms? No, but I do think that rain will develop and thunderstorms are possible, too. Any storm that does develop ahead or along this frontal boundary will have the potential to turn strong or severe. In my opinion, areas around Cincinnati stand the best chance to see any strong or severe storms. Of course this is all depends on how much sun we see tomorrow in addition to how high dew points climb. I'd make sure to check back with us this evening and again tomorrow for the latest.
Not only will this cold front bring us wet weather, but it will also influence temperatures across the Ohio and Tennessee Valley. A drastic drop in temperatures is to be expected in the coming days. And by drastic we're talking possible FROST! Yes, that would mean 30's folks...as I said, buckle up and enjoy the ride. :)
We'll have more this evening on Wave 3 news at 5, 5:30, 6, and 7. See you then!
