The cold front is currently passing through southern Indiana and will march its way southeast through the afternoon. The temperature drop is noted into the 50s to our north. Indy is 49! For Louisville...expect a drop to around 60 and it will likely hold there for the afternoon. Any sunshine breaks will try to battle the chilly NW flow, but they will likely lose.
Warming back up with strong winds through the period. SE winds should push us into the 69-73 degree range Friday after some morning fog. We will get close to record levels for Louisville with a forecast high of 82 degrees. A "backdoor" type front drops in Sunday. I took the rain chance out for now, but if any showers were to develop along that front...it would be NE of Oldham Co and more likely close to Cincy. The front may shave a few degrees off our highs...but nothing dramatic.
South winds return. Gusty. Just how much we get above 80 is a bit in question, but we seem to be overachieving with the dry ground still...so kept the high at 84 which would tie the record for the warmest Halloween ever (1950).
EARLIEST ALERT OUTLOOK:
We will likely start the month with more record high potential for next Tuesday/Wednesday. A cold front will move in next Thursday/Friday with a rain chance and cooler weather. The video explains why the pattern still has to go under a significant change to see our weather pattern flip to a cooler/colder one. We may have to wait just a bit longer.
