Cloudy skies and scattered showers to start the new week

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - It looks to be a dreary start to the work and school week with some rain chances in the forecast.

Today and Tonight
Cloudy skies will be the name of the game today, with some scattered rain chances. It will not be a complete washout, but it wouldn't hurt to take the rain gear, just in case. Highs will still approach 50 today and some sunshine will be possible at times.

Tonight, stray rain chances continue under cloudy skies. Lows get down into the mid to upper 30s.

Tuesday & Wednesday
Tuesday will look very similar to Monday with mainly cloudy skies with some sunshine and stray to scattered rain chances. It's almost a carbon copy of temperatures and conditions, both day and night with highs around 50 and lows in the mid to upper 30s. The clouds should start to clear sometime Tuesday night.

Wednesday looks pretty awesome, actually, with lots of sunshine and milder temperatures. Most locations should top out in the mid to upper 50s before dropping to around 40 overnight.

Extended Forecast
Well, our mainly dry stretch of weather looks to come to an end by the end of the week. Thursday will start out with sun and clouds before those clouds start to increase late in the day. There is a stray rain chance late into the evening and overnight hours.

Our next system looks to move in late Thursday night and hang around, potentially, into the first half of the weekend. Friday looks soggy at this point, so be ready for that. The models are split on how long the rain will hang around into Saturday, but they are showing rain at least into the morning hours.

After spiking in the low 60s on Thursday, temps will drop to around 50 by Saturday.

While we're talking about rain this week, don't forget our Winter Weather Outlook for the upcoming season will air Tuesday night at 6! You can get a sneak peek on the WYMT Weather App around 5 p.m!

Chief Meteorologist Paige Noël and I will be doing a Facebook Live at 7 p.m. tomorrow night to answer any questions you might have after the outlook airs!
