A cold front sweeps through the Commonwealth today while ramping up rain and even a few storm chances this afternoon. In return, look for increasing cloud cover with scattered showers and storms this afternoon. Highs top out in the low-mid 70’s for Eastern Kentucky.
Tonight, the aforementioned cold front pushes eastward and clears the state. Decreasing cloud cover can be expected through the overnight hours as lows dip into the low 50’s.
More rain chances appear possible over the next 4 days as a fairly active forecast pans out. While most are dry and warm Friday, storm chances will be possible late Friday night – Saturday morning. Conditions likely dry out later for the day Saturday but a slight chance remains for a shower or storm.
Better rain chances arrive by Sunday night and Monday as a strong cold front takes aim at the state. Showers and storms likely ramp up overnight bringing the threat for some heavy rainfall. Temperatures would cool from the mid 80’s this weekend to the low 70’s by early next week. A dry day would take over Tuesday before more rain chances look possible next mid-week.
