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. This is in effect until further notice. The Shelter In Place Warning is no longer in effect, and it is safe to turn on your HVAC systems if you live anywhere outside 1.2 miles.
TONIGHT: If your plans have you going out tonight, you’re fine, as we’ll keep tonight dry. Temperatures will fall to the upper 30’s.
THE WEEKEND: Our next disturbance moves our way. The result will be some showers coming back into the forecast tomorrow south of town, with highs near 55. I do think the best threat is across areas from Carrollton to Falmouth to Vanceburg and all points southward from those communities. Sunday looks dry at this point. I’ll go 52 on Sunday. Lows Saturday and Sunday nights may be in the middle 30’s.
NEXT WEEK: Models seem to agree through Tuesday, and then…uh oh…another storm may be heading up the east coast. I want to make one thing perfectly clear. This is NOT another system on the same scale as Sandy was. What happens with this is up in the air…but for the northeast, even though the impacts won’t be anywhere near what they were with Sandy, it’s something they DO NOT need. Highs will be in the 50’s for us here, for now I’ll leave us dry. I don’t expect much movement in temperatures, quite frankly.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Follow along with us in the aftermath of Sandy:
A REQUEST TO OUR READERS: I am not going to mince words: The Red Cross needs a lot of help. They deal with a lot of disasters. Sandy was a once in a lifetime event for the northeast…and the damage is extensive. They need help to get the residents of NY, NJ, PA, MD, DE, and CT back on their feet. I encourage you, please go to redcross.org and make a donation, or text “SANDY” to 90999 and a $10 donation will be added to your phone bill. Let’s get the northeast back on their feet.
NEXT UPDATE: Our next update here on the site will be early in the morning. In the meantime, take care!
