This Week’s Hazards

While hazardous weather is not expected over the next five days, widespread frost is possible tonight and likely tomorrow night.

Also, with dry conditions and low humidity, be careful if out burning. We’re getting into the season where we have to be mindful of wildfire dangers.

Five-Day Outlook

Five-Day Weather Forecast 

Friday: Partly cloudy. Patchy frost developing overnight. Northwest wind at 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Sunny and much cooler. Widespread frost likely overnight. North wind at 5 mph.

Sunday – Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Calm winds.

Forecast Discussion

Dry weather continues, along with more chances for frost. To our north, Kentucky is expecting widespread freezing temps Saturday night. Some of those folks may drop into the 20s! Much of the plateau will get very close to the first freeze of the season and some of us may even see our first freeze.

Drought Outlook 

Drought conditions worsened over the past week for much of the state. Unfortunately, there continues to be no significant rainfall in sight, so drought conditions are liable to worsen even more over the coming week.
