Friday- Freezing fog will be a major hazard for the morning commute. This will quickly dissipate as the sun rises. A high of 56 under clear skies will continue to melt the remaining snow. Low above freezing at 36.
Saturday: The high will reach near 60 degrees making for a great weekend. As night falls the chances of rain increase following weak frontal passage. A low around 36 with a slight wind.
Sunday: After the front temperatures do not fall much with a high of 50 degrees and sunny skies.
The sun is finally returning and seasonable temperatures have arrived. The sun is helping out with the tough situation on campus and around town caused by the lingering snow/ice. When the most recent winter storm came through, it dumped over 3 inches of sleet first before another inch of snow arrived. The sleet compacted throughout that night and the next day forming a thick sheet of ice that has hung around for much longer than anticipated. This sheet of ice has caused Warren County Schools to close for an entire week along with WKU missing 2 full days of school. For the moment Warren County is positioned under a high pressure system allowing the sun to shine, temperatures to rise, and the snow to melt. As this weekend begins a weak cold front will push through Kentucky bringing with it a slight chance for rain Saturday night, but causing only a small drop in temperature. Warm temperatures for the weekend are a great start to spring break.
