We're beginning to see changes in the weather trend this morning. The Tri-State is walking out the door to mostly cloudy skies and cold temperatures. Even though we are seeing a bit of relief in the temperature department, it is still very cold out there. Overnight lows dipped down to 28° under mostly cloudy conditions. Thankfully, wind speeds are staying on the calm side.
As we head closer to the afternoon there is a good chance of scattered rainfall. A weak core of low pressure currently situated over Texarkana will help force gulf moisture northward up the Mississippi Valley and eventually into the Tri-State. The rain will be sporadic and unorganized at best, but you may still want to keep an umbrella with you between Thursday and Friday. In addition to the showers, afternoon highs will also take a hit - we'll only reach 47° on Thursday. By the time the rainfall exits Friday morning, many of us will be left with less than 0.10" but a few of our Kentuckian communities may receive up to 0.25" of total precipitation.
