Temps climb, NWS recommends no burning until after 4

The calendar says there’s still two more weeks of winter left, but we’re getting a preview of the best springtime weather the Commonwealth has to offer today. 

Just a few minutes after 6 a.m., the thermometer at The County Line’s Adair branch in north Columbia shows that it’s already 60 degrees, and it’s just barely colder – 58 degrees – down the road at company headquarters in Russell Springs. 

The morning looks to be all sunshine, as the temperature will continue a steady march toward today’s 75-degree high. Expect to see some cloud coverage moving in by early to mid-afternoon, but no precipitation is predicted until tomorrow.

The National Weather Service in Louisville has recommended avoiding burning in The County Line coverage area today until after 4 p.m., writing that conditions are ripe for a fire to get out of control. The statement attributed the recommendation to gusty winds, low humidity, high temperatures, and several days of dry weather.

We’re wishing a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY today to James Dale Grider!
