You may want to keep the umbrella handy this weekend because the rain chances ramp up this afternoon. Scattered rain is likely through much of the weekend as a cold front makes its way toward eastern Kentucky.

Scattered showers and storms are likely this afternoon and evening. Some strong to severe storms are possible. Gusty winds and flash flooding are the main threats. Highs will be in the lower 80s.

Showers and storms continue overnight. Some storms could produce rather heavy rainfall at times. Gusty winds and flash flooding are possible. Low temperatures will be in the low to mid 60s.

Scattered showers remain likely throughout the day on Sunday with a few thunderstorms possible in the afternoon. Temperatures will be a bit cooler with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

The rain tapers off Sunday night, and there is some beautiful weather in store for the rest of the week. Monday will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

There is a very slight chance we could see a stray shower or two late Monday night and Tuesday morning due to the passage of a weak front. Other than that, Tuesday will be a rehash of Monday with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the mid to upper 70s.

Plenty of sunshine on tap for the rest of the week as high pressure dominates the pattern over our region. High temperatures steadily climb back into the low to mid 80s by the end of the week. Rain chances return Friday and continue into next weekend.
