Kentucky Agricultural Weather Outlook Updated Saturday, February 16, 2019

...Rain Chances Later Sunday, Then Heavy Rain Potential Across Southern KY Mid To Late Next Week...

Welcome to those attending the last day of the 2019 National Farm Machinery Show at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Lousiville. Stop by the UK College of Ag, Food and Environment, Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering exhibit today. Matt will be there to speak to you and your friends about Kentucky weather. Or just to say Hi!

Active pattern continues with multiple disturbances forecast to cross the region this work week. A warm front lifting north late tonight will bring changing winds Sunday, as well as more rain chances.

Expect a dry day with skies becoming partly cloudy. Highs will mostly range in the low to mid 40s. Precipitation chances will again increase overnight toward dawn on Sunday. Most of the precipitation will be light rain, however there is a chance for some light freezing rain or freezing drizzle north of the I-64 corridor. Little to no ice accumulation is expected.

A frontal boundary is forecast to stall somewhere in the region by mid to late week, with multiple waves of rain riding along it Tuesday through Friday. There is potential for several inches of rain during this time, which could lead to flooding and continued river flooding concerns. Right now, the heaviest rain looks to fall mostly over southern Kentucky however this could change in the coming days. Anyone with interests along rivers should pay attention to the forecast in the coming week.
