Lingering cloud cover and cooler temperatures have made for a cool and gray day across Eastern Kentucky; however, some cloud cover has thinned out over the afternoon. That being said, some folks will see more sun than others. There's still a chance of seeing scattered showers across the Mountains, which remains possible through the night.
A low pressure system will move south from Canada tomorrow, which will drag a cold front across the Commonwealth Wednesday. This will bring rain chances through Wednesday afternoon.
Most of the rain will hold off until mid-afternoon. That's when a line of showers and thunderstorms will push across I-75 and will likely cause rain through the rest of the afternoon. Some of the thunderstorms will have the potential to produce small, pea-sized hail. In addition, winds will likely gust into the mid and upper teens. As far as totals go, most of the area should pick up an additional quarter or half an inch of rain.
These storms will weaken as the sun sets, and lingering rain is possible through Thursday, especially for counties in the Big Sandy. This front will also bring unseasonably cool air. Highs on Wednesday will top out in the lower and mid 60s, while Thursday's highs will struggle to reach 60°.
It's possible to see a lingering shower Friday morning, but high pressure will build in from the south, which will dry our air out as the week wraps up. This will allow for a dry -and warm- Saturday.
On Sunday morning, some folks could see an isolated shower, but most should remain dry and the dry conditions last through Sunday afternoon and Monday.
By the beginning of next week, our next system will be approaching, which brings rain chances back in the forecast on Tuesday.
Have a great Tuesday!
