Eastern Kentucky Weather

Rain Leads to Brief Cool Down

Chief Meteorologist Shane Smith is tracking a cold front which will bring rain showers and a chance of frost to Eastern Kentucky.

 I hope you had a wonderful Easter holiday.  The weather was perfect any outdoor festivities you had planned, and today's weather was also fantastic.  We're going to see a few changes overnight though as a cold front enters Eastern Kentucky.   The front will bring showers and storms to the region tonight and tomorrow.  Most of the rain will exit the region by afternoon.  The heaviest looks like it will fall during the morning commute.

 

After the rain moves out skies will clear out as cooler and drier air moves into the region.  Temperatures Wednesday morning will tank, and could drop cold enough to allow a little patchy valley frost to develop.  The latest NAM model is showing the Wednesday morning chill quite well.

Temperatures will moderate a bit towards the end of the week and will stay pretty close to where they should be this time of year.  However the first week of may is beginning to look cold on the long range computer models.  Check out the GFS Ensemble showing the cold air the first few days of May.

At least the 7-Day forecast isn't looking today bad.
