The cool and crisp air continues throughout the evening as the effects of the cold front are felt in the mountains.
The coldest night of the season so far will impact Eastern Kentucky tonight. Mostly clear skies will allow temperatures to drop into the mid-upper 30s tonight in the valley locations. These locations will look at the potential for some patchy frost by Tuesday morning. Ridge tops will look at lows around 40° and into the lower 40s. Frost development in these areas looks unlikely.
Another cool day looks likely on Tuesday! Highs will stick in the low-mid 60s with mostly sunny skies. Calm winds will allow for a nice fall-like day in the mountains.
Temperatures will return to average by Wednesday with highs in the upper 60s! Mostly sunny skies will continue to be the case through the remainder of the work week.
A gradual warming trend will begin to take place as we head into Thursday and Friday! In fact, the area of high pressure responsible for sunny skies will allow a light south wind to increase. In return, highs will reach the low-mid 70s for both Thursday and Friday with mostly sunny skies.
Models continue to keep conditions dry for the weekend forecast. As of now, high temperatures look to reach the mid 70s for both Saturday and Sunday. Cloud cover will begin to increase Sunday as an incoming front moves towards the mountains. Actual rain chances from the front will not enter the forecast until next week.
