Colder Air is Coming!

Widespread rain will continue to spread eastward across the area this morning, with strong and gusty winds continuing as the cold front begins to pass through. Showers will quickly diminish from west to east after midday, with wind speeds gradually slackening as the front moves east. Colder temperatures will quickly filter into the region behind the front with temperatures falling throughout the day today. Highs on Tuesday will only be in the mid 40s with a few locations not making it past the low 40s. Lows Tuesday night will be mostly in the mid 20s, although a few of the coolest spots will drop into the low 20s.

Below is a meteogram depicting hourly temperatures from around dawn this morning through early Wednesday morning. The red line indicates hourly temperatures for the Louisville region, with the green line depicting dewpoints, and the blue line indicating wind chill. Notice that temperatures will actually fall through the daytime hours today as cold air makes a strong push behind the passing front. Temperatures will likely be in the upper 30s to lower 40s around sunset this evening. A similar temperature trend can be expected for all of southern Indiana and central Kentucky.
