Pesky storm system keeping us dreary!
The gloomy start has continued into the afternoon today.
Although it looks like it could rain at any time, the nearest showers are located over the Frankfort/Lexington area.
A slow moving low pressure system is parked across the area right now and will be slow to exit over the next 24 hours.
However, because of dry air located in the middle layers of the atmosphere, little rainfall is expected across our area.
Here's a look at AdvanceTrak valid at 7 PM this evening showing plenty of clouds, but a lack of showers.
The clouds look to linger through tonight and possibly into the first half of the day tomorrow. However, a generally clearing trend is expected as we head into the afternoon and it will be accompanied by some warmer temps.
The warm up will continue into the end of the work week with temps expecting to crack 80 on Thursday!
However, that will come to a screeching halt with the passage of a very strong cold front Friday night.
Notice the mass of blue and purple on this GFS 850 temp map. That's a shot of some real cold air coming our way this weekend!
This will likely lead to the coldest temps so far this early fall season.
