Surface high pressure will slide towards the eastern coast through today as spring-like conditions continue for Eastern Kentucky. Partly sunny skies are expected this afternoon as temperatures soar into the upper 60’s to right around 70º.
Tonight, cloud cover sticks around as a calm night prevails. Lows bottom out in the lower 50’s as a mild night wins out.
By Tuesday, winds begin to pick up from the southwest between 5-10 mph as high pressure loses its grip on the Commonwealth. A cold front across the Central Plains works eastward into Tuesday night as rain chances ramp up for Eastern Kentucky. A few showers remain possible Tuesday afternoon but most activity arrives late Tuesday night. Highs top out around 70º once again.
Mid-week kicks off on a wet note. Scattered morning showers hang around before conditions dry out Wednesday afternoon. Despite the passing cold front, temperatures rise back into the upper 60’s for highs as the spring-like feel continues.
Late week will offer more scattered rain chances Thursday with another round Friday night and Saturday. Rain chances come to an end Saturday afternoon as conditions clear out and cool off. Highs through this weekend top out in the mid 50’s.
