After an active stretch of weather for Eastern Kentucky, many catch a break as upper level ridging allows some sunshine back into the forecast. It’ll be a great way to wrap up the work week as highs climb into the upper 70’s this afternoon under mostly sunny skies.
Tonight, clouds will increase from the west as the next rain maker takes aim at the Ohio Valley. A fairly strong low pressure system will track northward from the southern Plains before swinging a warm front across the region Saturday. Showers are expected to ramp up as early as Saturday morning and stick around through Sunday.
Better chances for a few storms become possible into Sunday as the atmosphere could have a little more energy to work with. While no widespread severe weather is anticipated, a few strong-severe storms will be possible during the day.
The aforementioned low pressure system and its attendant cold front finally swing through the Commonwealth late Sunday/early Monday. Rain chances seems to linger around Monday morning before drying out by the afternoon hours. Another disturbance could take shape towards next mid week while keeping slight chances for rain in the forecast through next Thursday. Temperatures for the extended period turn more seasonable with highs in the upper 60’s and lower 70’s.
