Falling Temperatures and Rain Expected in the Commonwealth
Indian summer is over. At least for now. A cold front will move through Kentucky today and cause temperatures to plunge into the 50s by noon and even lower tonight. And it will start raining this afternoon and could continue through about midday on Saturday. Upwards of three-fourths of an inch could fall in some places, according to the National Weather Service. Highs on Saturday will hit the mid-50s.
Sunday, according to the weather service, should be sunny and highs in the 50s.
Longer term, the NWS is watching Hurricane Sandy and how it might impact Kentucky. The storms track is unknown now but areas of Kentucky could see 1 to 3 inches of rain by Thursday of next week.
And in one possible scenario, NBC News reported Friday morning that snow could fall inland as far as the Appalachians - as much as 12 inches. But it all depends on which path Sandy follows.
