Before our forecast, a note for our friends in Louisville, regarding the issues with the train derailment. Everyone within a 1.2 mile radius of Katherine Station Road and Dixie Highway near West Point, KY is still under a MANDATORY EVACUATION, and everyone else within a 5 mile radius is still asked to SHELTER IN PLACE with all doors and windows closed and all HVAC systems turned off. This is in effect until further notice.
TODAY/FRIDAY: Looking a lot better for the late week. Highs will be around 50 today and 53 Friday, with lows in the middle and upper 30’s tonight. A FREEZE WARNING remains in effect until 10 AM for all of us, with the exceptions of the eastern counties and of Franklin, Fayette and Union counties in Indiana.
THE WEEKEND: Our next disturbance moves our way. The result will be some showers coming back into the forecast on Saturday, with highs near 55. Sunday may actually be dry, but the models aren’t being consistent. I’ll go 52 on Sunday. Lows both mornings should be in the upper 30’s.
NEXT MONDAY-TUESDAY: Models cannot seem to agree, and it would appear that we may still have some precipitation around. I’m not going to go with any until I see better run-to-run consistency. Highs will be in the 50’s.
