Pinpoint Weather: Increasing cloudiness today, rain overnight, dry Friday

Weather Blog

The dry and mild pattern will be with us for one more day before a rapidly moving cold front drops some rain on the Commonwealth. The rain is expected to push through overnight and should leave behind around 0.75 – 1.25” of rain. The rain will be heavy at times, but due to the dry conditions over the past several days, there is a low risk of flooding.

The leaves and debris on the ground may clog up some drains leading to some minor street flooding, but overall, the rain should move through fast enough to reduce the threat of widespread flooding.

This cold front will be out of the region early Friday and the skies will clear and we should see a bit of a breezy scenario Friday. The temps will not be all that chilly behind the front since we have been so mild. This front actually gets us back to normal as far as temps go, so we will be looking at highs in the 60s.

Another shot of cooler air is expected to arrive for Saturday and that will be the front that provides us with the cold air pattern for the weekend.

There may be some mountain snow showers on Saturday, mainly a dusting. On Monday there will be another chance for some snow, this time we should get a couple of inches on the hills, but not much will translate east. There may be some issues on I-64 west of Covington, and highways in the Highlands, but not much near 81.

The new work week will be on the quiet side with a good deal of sunshine and temperatures warming from the upper 40s on Monday to the 60s by the middle of the week.

Stay Safe,
