Another frosty start to the morning. Mainly clear skies, calm winds, and hello widespread frost for the second morning in a row. Looking ahead...
A cold front to our West will continue its Eastward track and eventually affect parts Kentuckiana. Throughout the rest of the day we'll see increasing cloud cover stream in from the West due to the approaching cold front. Much of the morning and early afternoon will be filled with sunshine...hopefully enough to warm us into the low to mid 60s. Here's the deal...should we see clouds sooner our temps may not warm as much, however we're ahead of a front which typically brings warmer temps...so it will be a battle to see what scenario plays out. Either way, expect a chilly Fall afternoon.
As the front gets closer showers are likely to develop in Western KY late tonight into early tomorrow...with rain expected in and around the metro around anytime between 4-8am. This front doesn't have much punch with it...but I think it has enough to squeeze out some rain. It won't be widespread flooding rains or anything like that...but just be aware some rain is possible into tomorrow morning. Which brings us to Halloween!
As the front passes through the area tomorrow cooler temperatures will follow. Highs tomorrow will remain in the 50s under mostly cloudy skies early and a chance for a few showers. As the front pushed Eastward I think there will be a definitive cut off line from clouds to no clouds...so I expect some sun to return by tomorrow afternoon. Trick or treating forecast: Temps settle into the upper 40s and low 50s under dry conditions.
A stronger cold front looks to approach Kentuckiana mid to late next week. This one looks to have more giddy up with it. Still several days away, but some data hinting at winter precip on the backside of the system. Speaking of winter precip...hello Northeast snow storm! Can you believe that? What a whopper of a Nor'easter...check out this link...( http://www.erh.noaa.gov/hydromet/erEventDisplay.php ) for updated snow totals. A few spots picked up more than 2 FEET of snow. Mind blowing...just goes to show Mother Nature is in control. :) Have a wonderful and safe Halloween...I'll see you back here Saturday morning at 6am!
