CHRIS ALLEN'S MIDDAY UPDATE Updated 11:23 AM Friday, March 6, 2015 24-hour First Alert Forecast 270-467-0373
Come join the WBKO First Alert Storm Team and Kroger at the Sloan Convention Center Saturday 10am-2pm for our NOAA Weather Radio programming event at the WBKO booth. We will have a stock of weather radios for purchase or bring us your radio for free programming or retuning.
NOWCAST THROUGH THIS EVENING: Sunny but cold. Noon: 25° 1pm: 27° 2pm: 30° 3pm: 30° 4pm: 29° 5pm: 29° 6pm: 28°
FINALLY FRIDAY: After flooding rains and another snowstorm, we will begin to see several days of improving weather across the region. We start with temperatures in the single digits this morning (we tied the all-time record low of 1° set on this day in 1960!) but abundant sunshine will take over today helping the melting process. However, afternoon highs will stay cold and only reach to near 30°. As lows drop back into the teens tonight under a clear sky we will see some patchy fog and freezing fog to develop which will produce low visibility and icy spots on area roads.
HOME EXPO WEEKEND: Saturday looks sunny with warmer temperatures in the mid to upper 40s and Sunday closer to 50°. The slow warming trend should go into early next week. A weak upper level system may bring a chance for a rain shower Monday night into Tuesday morning. A welcomed March "thaw" will continue through the rest of the upcoming week with lots of sunshine and highs reaching into the mid 60s Wednesday and close to 70° by Thursday!
DON'T FORGET! Daylight Saving Time begins at 2am Sunday. Set your clocks AHEAD one hour to Spring Forward! Also check the batteries in your smoke alarms and weather radios!
THIS AFTERNOON: Sunny but Cold...High 30, winds SW-5 Hazardous travel conditions
TONIGHT: Clear with Patchy Fog and Freezing Fog...Low 13, winds SW-3 Hazardous travel conditions
SATURDAY: Mostly Sunny and Much Warmer...High 46, Low 26, winds SW-11
