HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - It's been a beautiful day, but another chilly night is ahead for most locations.
Tonight & Tomorrow
If you want to have any "warmth" tonight, the ridges are the place to be. We're expecting clear skies, so without the clouds, there will be no blanket to hold in any of the heat of the sun. After it sets, temperatures will plunge into the mid to upper 30s by morning in most valley locations. The mountaintops should stay in the low to mid-40s.
Some folks could wake up to patchy frost and some dense fog, so make sure you're prepared for both to start the new work and school week.
Monday looks like a quiet fall day, with lots of sunshine that should warm us back up toward the 70-degree mark after the chilly start. A few clouds could move in tomorrow night, which will keep our lows a little warmer, only dropping into the mid-40s.
The biggest thing we're watching at this point is a mid-week cold front.
Tuesday looks fairly nice, with sunshine mixed with clouds and highs in the low 70s. The southern counties could see a stray rain chance in the late afternoon and evening hours.
The models are in a bit of a disagreement when the front arrives. Some have it during the nighttime hours on Tuesday, others have it more toward the early morning hours of Wednesday. Regardless, it looks like by the time we get to Wednesday afternoon, the skies should start to clear.
The daytime high for Wednesday looks to be in the upper 50s around midnight. As the skies clear Wednesday night, we'll drop back into the mid-30s.
After that, temps are cool on Thursday and Friday, but get right back into the low 70s under sunny skies for the weekend.
