Frost Potential: When & How Cold

There are two systems near Kentuckiana and impacting our forecast. Both will bring a slight chance for showers today and tomorrow. The low pressure churning to our south will bring a few showers, mainly to our southern counties, in Kentucky. The cold front will bring only a stray showers, at best, tomorrow evening.

The cold front is moving through a very dry atmosphere and therefore producing any rain will be difficult, but not impossible, tomorrow. If you see any showers it will likely be brief.

If you don't see any rain, the only sign that a cold front moved through the area will be cooler temperatures by the weekend.  Notice by Saturday afternoon highs will STRUGGLE to even make it to the 60s with a mix of sun and clouds. It will be breezy too with a NW wind at 10-15 mph.

As clouds clear our area Saturday night & winds back off... it is going to get COLD! Temps will drop in to the low & mid 30s. These conditions are prime for frost development. The light wind MAY limit some frost, but I do think we will see some, particularly in our low lying areas. Prepare to protect your vegetation!

After a cooler weekend, with below average temps (which is 72 degrees for this time of the year) in the low and mid 60s, it will begin to warm back up by Derby week. Notice below, that by Monday of next week, it will be ABOVE average, in the mid 70s. We will likely continue to increase into the 80s!

There are a few storms possible toward the of next week as we warm up. Find out what we know, as of now, on WDRB News this evening with Marc and with Jude on WDRB in the Morning from 5-9 am.
