The pattern turns quiet to start the new year

Good Wednesday to one and all. We have one more batch of some showers working across the region today. Once this is through here, our hyper-active weather pattern is finally going to turn quiet.

Today’s showers will be rather light compared to what we’ve had over the past few weeks. The best chance will be across eastern Kentucky, where temps will be in the low 50s for highs. The rest of the region should stay in the upper 40s.

Colder weather will be with us for the final day of the year with highs in the upper 30s to around 40. A mix of sun and clouds will be around during this time. The weather across much of the country looks seasonally cold at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve:
