One More Night With Chance Of Widespread Frost -Bill Graul
A Bit Warmer Tomorrow & Thursday
Tonight’s Forecast Low: 36F / Wednesday’s Forecast High: 67F…
High pressure across the region will again cause clear skies and light winds tonight… leading to another chilly night with the chance for frost in many locations. It won’t be quite as cold as last night, with temps likely about 3 to 5-degrees warmer… but still plenty cold to see frost formation in many areas. Traditional colder counties to the north and east will again be the coldest.
As a result, the NWS again has our area in a FROST ADVISORY overnight, with Clark, Jackson and Monroe counties under a FREEZE WARNING. These alerts are in effect from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m. Wednesday. So, you know the drill… be sure to protect cold-sensitive plants and perhaps disconnect garden hoses, especially in the Freeze Warned areas.
Sunshine to start Wednesday, then some fair-weather clouds will bubble up during the afternoon hours. It will be a little warmer, with highs in the mid-upper 60s. Not quite as cold Wednesday night, with most areas in the upper 30s to low 40s. However, traditional colder counties to the north/east may be cold enough to see some patchy frost. Stay tuned!
Looking Ahead… Sunny to partly cloudy again on Thursday, perhaps even some isolated sprinkles in spots Thursday afternoon and early evening. Isolated showers and perhaps a thunderstorm will be possible on Friday. Highs both day look to be in the upper 60s in most areas.
Isolated showers possible on Saturday, then rain chances increase into Sunday. Highs this weekend will remain in the mid-upper 60s for most areas. Overnight lows will be in the 40s, so no worries for frost.
The chance for showers could linger into Monday, then next Tuesday and Wednesday are looking mainly dry at this point. Temps will actually warm closer to average during the first half of next week, with highs in the low 70s common. That will sure feel nice!
Have a good night! -Bill Graul
