GOES East infrared 12/17-12/18. Sat images are downloaded directly from space at our ground station in Oldham County, Kentucky.

Today: Quiet and sunny. Highs 45-50.

Wednesday – Wednesday night: Another dry day but a river of moisture will start flowing out of the Gulf of Mexico. Temps will be in the 50s and may even hit the 60s south of us. Rain over central Kentucky overnight will spread statewide. 

Thursday – Friday: Rain from .75 to 1.5 inches depending on where you are. As this rainmaker moves east the backside is likely to hit some cold air resulting in snow. The computer models disagree on how much – if any. The models DO agree, however, that Friday will be windy.

Saturday: The low moves east. Mostly dry with highs in the 40s.
