Elizabethtown, Kentucky

We were just in Kentucky for our last forecast, and today, we are going just down the road, staying in the Bluegrass State.

At 155AM, ET, Elizabethtown was reporting a temperature of 45 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. There is a remnant disturbance over the the center of the country that is providing clouds and some light rain to parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley. A seasonably strong jet streak lay just north of the Gulf of Mexico, and was reflected by the tail of a cold front along the Gulf Coast which was working to prevent much moisture from filtering into the middle of the country. As a result, the already weak feature was even less potent than it’s dynamics suggested.
This aimless bit of moisture and energy has a very modest low level trough running from the eastern Great Lakes towards the Ozarks, and won’t be compelled to move. Instead, it will be lost between a resurgent area of low pressure developing along the Gulf front and a trough descending from Canada. Without a fresh infusion of moisture, or a terribly volatile trigger mechanism, expect little, if any precipitation in the area, with partly to mostly cloudy skies.

It’s always an interesting day when the forecast even features different precipitation forecasts. With some clear sky peaking through, I think the temperature has room to drop over night. That is the first question for this forecast!
