Saturday 12/8 Forecast: Maybe a Brief Break in the Rain?

TODAY AND TONIGHT: Here’s the deal. There is a surface wave west of us that will roll through this morning. Then, the front looks like it could scoot far enough south for locations from the river north to dry out somewhat (especially the northern counties) during the next 12-18 hours. If you are south of the river (particularly if you’re from Carrollton to Falmouth to Vanceburg and points south from there, including Owenton, Corinth, and Mount Olivet), you have a better chance at rain lasting for much of the day. I cannot rule out showers even for those north of the river, however, especially for this morning. Highs will be around 58, but that might be a midday high — as the front scoots south of town temperatures will drop off a bit. Late tonight, more rain moves in with another wave and the front comes BACK north, this time as a warm front. Lows will be around 47.

SUNDAY-MONDAY: Sunday will be quite soggy. Take the raingear to the stadium, if you’re going to see Bengals/Cowboys. Highs should be around 60. We will see rain and thunderstorms for Sunday night. Monday, we will go BACKWARDS in temperatures…starting out in the 50’s Sunday night at midnight but falling all the way through the daytime hours so that by Monday evening we should be in the 30’s. With that kind of temperature drop through the day, we may see the rain end as a few flakes of snow Monday afternoon — but the models are waffling on that. I’ll leave it in, but DO NOT expect accumulations no matter what. It’s important to point out that yes, we will see a copious amount of rain over the next couple days. However, we were in a bit of a dry spell…so flood guidance is high enough that I wouldn’t anticipate flash flooding issues, much less river flooding. So, no need to worry about that — this is not like last year, when we had WAY too much rain and shattered all kinds of precipitation records.

TUESDAY-NEXT FRIDAY: The majority of next week looks chilly but dry, with highs in the 40’s and lows in the middle 20’s Tuesday morning rising to lower 30’s by Friday. And the roller coaster, at least for now, continues…
