Cold front brings chilly showers Saturday afternoon

A strong cold front will bring chilly showers and cooler temperatures to the Commonwealth Saturday.

A strong cold front will swing through the Bluegrass state Saturday afternoon, bringing some chilly showers and cooler air along for the ride. The line of showers will move into parts of central Kentucky around noon, weakening as it comes. By mid-afternoon, the eastern zones will start to pick up on the shower activity, but by this time, showers will likely be more spotty in nature.

As far as temperatures go, highs today will climb into the mid 50s early this afternoon, but once the cold front passes through, we’ll notice a 5-10 degree drop within a few hours. For our eastern zones, the cool down will come much later in the afternoon.

You will also notice the wind beginning to shift as the front nears your neighborhood. As it passes through, breezy south wind will shift to out of the west. That’s when you know a drop in temperatures is near. The wind will also make it feel even more chilly if you’re spending time outdoors.

Fog will be a threat for your morning commute into Sunday, especially in low-laying areas. But once the fog lifts, the day is looking much better with a mostly sunny sky and highs nearing 60 degrees.
