Clark County families preserve farmland for more than 200 years

Cold overnight, showers return Thursday


One last batch of light showers that moved through the area early this evening will lead to a gradual break in the clouds and more clearing overnight, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, a frost advisory for all counties in the region except for Randolph in Indiana will be in effect from 2 to 9 a.m. Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

Overnight winds will not completely die down and that is important because it will likely prevent widespread frost as the coldest air will not be able to concentrate near the ground.

The low will reach 33 and some areas may get to or just below freezing. Thursday morning sun will give way to afternoon clouds and a few passing showers in the afternoon with a better chance north than south.

Friday, which will start in the mid 30s at sunrise, still looks very sunny with a warming trend into the lower 60s by afternoon.

Saturday starts with sun giving way to clouds and a chance of a stray shower south late or in the evening.

Sunday and Monday should be mostly cloudy with possible light showers, but mostly dry. Monday, temperatures will approach 70.
