HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - We are tracking beneficial rain across the region tonight and Tuesday. However, we are also watching out for gusty winds. A Wind Advisory is in place for the higher elevations.

Tonight Through Tuesday Night

Rain will increase in coverage through tonight. A widespread soaking is on tap as an upper-level low moves across the region. We are not expecting any severe weather, but some heavier pockets of rain will be possible.

We are also tracking some breezy winds. For most of us, we see gusts between 20-30 mph. However, a Wind Advisory is in place from 10 p.m. through noon on Tuesday for the higher elevations in Letcher and Harlan counties. A Wind Advisory is also in place for Campbell County, Tennessee and all of our Southwest Virginia counties. In the higher elevations, we could see winds up to 50 mph at times, and this could lead to some spotty downed trees and power outages. However, we are not expecting a widespread threat. Low temperatures fall into the upper-40s and lower-50s under a cloudy sky.
