Kentucky Agricultural Weather Outlook Updated Thursday Evening, October 19, 2017
...Continued Mostly Sunny And Warmer...

Look for dry conditions and seasonable warm temperatures to remain with the area through Saturday. Highs look to continue in the 70s and lows will actually be a bit warmer than the previous few nights. No frost in the forecast at least through next Tuesday. Rain chances return late in the weekend and linger through Tuesday. Behind the rain, drier and much cooler air arrives by mid-week.

The Climate Prediction Center just released their Winter Outlook today. The potential development of La Nina puts Kentucky in line to see a warmer and wetter than normal winter. More info here.
