...Frost Advisory in Effect for Central KY and Southern Bluegrass...

Clouds will continue to break and eventually become mostly clear overnight as surface high pressure moves overhead. In addition, winds will become calm, creating ideal conditions for a cool night ahead. Lows will typically drop into the mid to upper 30s for most locations, but some low lying and sheltered areas could drop to around freezing. A Frost Advisory has been posted for late tonight and into tomorrow morning for much of Central Kentucky. This looks to be the coolest night over the upcoming week.

After another cool day tomorrow, temperatures will be on the rise heading into the weekend and next work week. Highs by Monday and Tuesday could peak in the 70s. In addition, conditions will also remain dry through at least the early stages of next work week.

A hurricane struck southeastern New England. It was the most violent in
thirty years. Thousands of trees blocked roads in Massachsuetts and Rhode
Island. (David Ludlum)
...1843...
"Indian Summer" was routed by cold and snow that brought sleighing from the
Poconos to Vermont. A foot of snow blanketed Haverhill NH and Newberry VT,
and 18 to 24 inches were reported in some of the higher elevations. Snow
stayed on the ground until the next spring. (22nd-23rd) (Sandra and TI
Richard Sanders - 1987) (The Weather Channel)
...1987...
Thirteen cities in the southeastern U.S. reported record low temperatures

Winnemucca NV reported their first measurable rain in ninety-two days,
while Yakima WA reported a record 96 days in a row without measurable
rainfall. (Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary)
