Good Sunday everyone. A serious blast of chilly air has invaded the bluegrass state and much of the eastern half of the country. This air is colder than the stuff we had last week and is likely to bring us, at least, some patchy frost later tonight.
Today is starting out with temps in the upper 30s and low 40s for much of our region. Skies will be sunny as our thermometers only manage to climb toward a breezy high in the low and mid 60s.
Clear skies, light winds and low humidity levels will combine to send our overnight temps into the middle 30s. Some of our traditional cold spots may be even colder than that. This will set us up for an early season brush with frost and this is coming about 2-3 weeks ahead of schedule. Take care of the tender plants and vegetation!
Monday will be another breezy and cool day with highs in the 60s. Warmer air will fight back in here by Tuesday as temps hit the lower 70s. We should stay in the 70s for the rest of the week for afternoon highs. This pattern isn’t going to be all good, though. A front will become stationary across the Ohio Valley and will likely give us a daily threat for showers and storms. The NAM says the action gets started by Tuesday:
Enjoy your Sunday and take care.
