Clark County, KY Weather and Hourly Weather

A joint service of the UK Ag Weather Center and the National Weather Service.
Updated Wednesday Evening, February 24, 2021

…Significant Rainfall on the table this weekend…

Max temperatures have overachieved today with highs in the middle 60s to low 70s for much of the state. A cold front is getting ready to push through the state this evening and overnight. Still not looking at much, if any, accumulations with this passage. If rain is seen, believe it will be a few hundreths or less.

Temperatures take a slide for the next couple days behind the boundary, but just back closer to seasonable norms for this time of year. We warm up again over the weekend, but rain chances return. In fact, looking at the possibility of multiple waves of RAINFALL through the weekend and into the early stages of next work week. Current precipitation forecast range from around 1 inch across the Northern Bluegrass to 3 or 4 inches to Southern KY.

Stay tuned as we move forward for adjustments to the forecast. This will likely create a muddy mess for livestock producers. Specialists advise to start thinking about rotating where they feed cattle in the following article from UK Ag Communications here.

Outlooks continue to hint at higher confidence in above normal temperatures and precipitation into the second week of March.
