NOWCAST: A spinkle or two is possible through midnight, otherwise expect clearing toward daybreak. It will be chilly, with lows in the upper 40s.
UNSEASONABLY COOL: A reinforcing shot of cool, Canadian air is settling into South-Central KY behind a weak cold front that passed through Thursday evening. We'll start Friday with cool readings in the upper 40s before seeing temps only warm into the upper 60s to near 70. Despite the unseasonably cool readings, it will be a pleasant finish to the week, with lots of sunshine and light northerly breezes. As winds die down Friday night, clear skies will send temperatures plunging into the lower 40s. Some outlying areas could even wake up to a few upper 30s Saturday morning!
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: Overall, the holiday weekend should bring cooperative weather for your outdoor plans (although it will be a bit cool for swimming). Highs will slowly warm into the mid 70s for Saturday and Sunday, with lower 80s on Memorial Day (Monday). There will be slight chances for a few isolated thundershowers Sunday and Monday, but many areas will stay dry. Overnight lows warm into the more seasonable upper 50s by late weekend.
NEXT WEEK: The warming trend continues with the return of more summer-like readings by the end of the period. Highs reach the mid to upper 80s Wednesday into Thursday, with fair to partly cloudy skies expected.
TONIGHT: Clearing and Cooler... Low 49, winds N-6
FRIDAY: Mostly Sunny and Mild... High 70, Low 43, winds N-9
