(WYMT) - Scattered rain chances continue as the low pressure system moves across Kentucky.
Scattered rain chances and mostly cloudy skies continue tonight as the system moves from western Kentucky to eastern Kentucky. Overnight lows will drop down into the upper 50s with patchy fog development likely.
The first day of the Black Gold Festival begins and scattered rain chances look to be a common theme through the morning hours. Clouds will stick around as high temperatures reach the upper 60s. During the afternoon, rain chances will become more isolated. If you are planning on heading down to the festival, be sure to grab the rain jacket or umbrella.
Conditions finally clear out in time for Friday. Partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-70s will be the story for end of the week. If you plan on stopping by the guest weather booth at Black Gold, be sure to bring your on-air personality! I will be looking for a few people to put on TV. Friday night football looks nice once again. Lows will drop down to the upper 50s and lower 60s Friday night.
High pressure continues to strengthen Saturday and Sunday as skies clear out. Highs will reach the lower 80s due to a southwesterly wind this weekend. Any outdoor plans look perfect in the mountains this weekend.
Models have been trending drier in the previous runs. This would indicate more sunshine and less cloud cover for the start of next week. As of now, we are sticking with partly cloudy skies and highs in the lower 80s. No rain chances are in the forecast next week. As always, be sure to stay updated to the WYMT weather app for any changes.
Have a great evening!
