Wind today, possibly snow Tuesday morning; hard freeze Tuesday night

RICHMOND — While rain and possibly snow are in the forecast for Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service in Louisville is advising that high winds may continue in Madison County until 3 p.m. today. Gusts of up to 40 mph and scattered thunderstorms are possible.

The hazardous weather advisory applies to central Kentucky and portions of southern Indiana.

While the winds should die down this afternoon, there is an 80 percent probability of rain tonight.

The outlook gets more ominous Tuesday night when the NWS says a hard freeze is likely. There is a 50 percent change of rain and and possibly snow before 11 a.m. Tuesday, according to the forecast. However, no snow accumulation is expected.

Temperatures are expected to fall as low as the mid 20s Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning with several hours below 30 degrees.

Regional agriculture experts say the growing season has progressed far enough that “a hard freeze would be impactful to spring vegetation,” according to the NWS. “Widespread frost could damage outplants if not covered or taken indoors.”

Monday’s gusty winds were attributed to an advancing cold front that was to bring the snow and freezing temperatures.
