A cold front takes aim at Eastern Kentucky over the next 24 hours while bringing the chance for a few showers and storms with it. Today, mostly sunny skies break out early on before cloud cover increases into this evening. Afternoon highs will be warm once again as temperatures top out in the upper 80’s.
Tonight, mostly cloudy skies prevail as the aforementioned cold front works through the Commonwealth. With limited moisture and timing of the front, only a slight chance exist for showers. Lows eventually drop into the upper 60’s by early Thursday morning.
The cold front will continue its southeastward progression through the day Thursday. Clouds hang tough as rain and storm chances linger into Thursday afternoon. Highs will be much cooler as cloud cover and rain chances keep temperatures from climbing much higher than 80 degrees.
Any shower or storm activity pushes southeastward while clearing all of Eastern Kentucky late Thursday. Mostly clear skies occur Thursday night with cool temperatures in the lower 60’s. Some patchy fog development remains possible early Friday morning.
Canadian high pressure sweeps in from the northwest while delivering a cooler and drier shot of air. Highs top out in the upper 70’s for all of Eastern Kentucky Friday with a gradual warm up in the low 80’s through Labor Day weekend.
Rain-free conditions with sun-filled skies can be anticipated for the extended period as temperatures remain seasonable in the low-mid 80s.
