Active weather ahead for the weekend and next week.
Until then, fairly quiet. So my advice is to get out and enjoy it and get that yard work done!
It will be breezy and warm this afternoon.
A cold front does push in tomorrow but not until late in the day. It will mostly be a cloud-maker into Friday with very little if any rain.
FRIDAY NIGHT/SATURDAY: This is where forecast challenges kick in. A strong low pressure will develop out of Texas and will pass near or just to the southeast of Louisville during this time. The track is important as locations just to the southeast of the track could pick up several hours of heavy rainfall. In fact, 2-3″+ is possible for parts of KY and TN. Just how much of WAVE Country is in that zone is unclear at this time. Areas along and north of the track will see far lesser amounts. It will be a breezy system with temperatures also warmer on its southern side and cooler north. Stay close to the forecast as we continue to adjust timing and locations of the rainfall.
NEXT WEEK: Still some stark differences in the data as we close out October. At this time, we are leaning toward a fairly dynamic system that will roll in Tuesday night/Wednesday with a surge of warm air/gusty winds and rain/thunderstorms. It looks to pass to the east on Halloween day with a significant blast of cold air moving in. While this system does look impressive on paper, the data is still adjusting enough that timing could still shift an entire day (faster or slower) and that will greatly change the specifics of course. Just stay close to the WAVE 3 Weather App and we will continue to adjust accordingly as confidence increases on a more specific outcome.
You can tell winter is not far away...
