First Alert Weather Forecast

Rain will continue to spread through the area today. While some of you will catch a break, it won't last long at all.

An area of low pressure will be sweeping north of Kentucky. The low will continue the intensification process through the afternoon and evening. Winds will really pick up through the overnight and into Monday. Some of the wind gusts could top 40 MPH or even higher. Sustained winds will be running 20-25 MPH when the system is closest to Kentucky. Factor in rain and we have ourselves a messy forecast.

There is a cold front attached to this low and it will swing through Kentucky for the beginning of next week. The cold air invasion will begin again. Our highs will begin dropping on Monday. While official records will show highs around 54-57, the afternoon readings will be much colder. Most areas will hover around 40-45.

The rest of the week will feature more very cold conditions. The highs will run in the low and mid 30s from midweek through the end of the week. We are still watching Thanksgiving for better snow chances. Especially, across parts of Eastern Kentucky. Folks in Central Kentucky might not be out of the path either. There could be another wave of energy that at least brings some light snow here too.

Models will continue to analyze the data this week. We'll keep you up-to-date all week long.
