Sky Alert Weather Forecast

High pressure will build into the Ohio Valley from the Great Lakes Region as the nice, dry, and warmer stretch of weather continues. Much like yesterday, today will feature mostly sunny skies with warm afternoon highs in the upper 70’s.

Tonight, a few clouds are possible as cooler conditions prevail. Overnight lows fall into the low-mid 50’s. Patchy fog likely develops by early Wednesday morning.

A weak upper level disturbance moves through Wednesday but no precipitation is expected. However, an increase in cloud cover will occur. Otherwise, a partly-mostly sunny day takes over with highs back into the mid-upper 70’s.

The extended forecast features rain chances late week and into the first part of your weekend. It sounds a lot worse than what it’ll end up being. A quick hitting cold front brings showers starting early Friday morning and will last throughout the day. Rain totals will range between a 0.25” – 0.50”.

While a few lingering showers remain possible Saturday morning, Eastern Kentucky should dry out Saturday afternoon as cooler, drier air settles in. Sunshine returns to the forecast as highs only top out in the mid-upper 60’s for the weekend.

Have a great Tuesday!
