First Alert Weather Forecast

Expect a few more showers as the system passes through Kentucky. Some of these could be a little gusty!

Most of the showers will be like the batch of showers that passed through earlier on Monday. These won't have a lot of issues tied to them. The real issue won't be with the showers, but more with the significantly cooler air that arrives with those showers. It hasn't been warm around here by any stretch. But the next airmass will be even cooler.

It looks like Wednesday has potential to be gusty and cooler. I only expect highs to reach the low 50s. There are several reasons why we'll see that kind of high, but here are the main reason

-The low that brought the cold front won't be going very far at all. It's reach will include Kentucky. We'll be on the backside of this system. It will yank very chilly air out of Canada and deliver it to Kentucky.

-Again... the same low will keep the clouds hanging around. There will be some sunshine, but those clouds won't be gone long. It's hard to warm things up a lot when you are tracking a northerly wind and no sunshine.

The low will eventually lose its influence over the area and move up the east coast as a much more powerful system. We'll track some slightly milder air into Kentucky by the weekend. We'll just have to get through the cool stuff first!
