Scattered showers possible later this afternoon, most stay dry

By  | 

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - There could be a little patchy fog around this morning, but overall, the chill is the big thing you'll notice early on this Wednesday.

Today and Tomorrow
A weak disturbance is going to try to work through the mountains later this afternoon, so that could throw a few scattered showers into the mix. Scattered is the key word there. I think most of the day will be dry with sun and clouds. Highs will climb back into the 70-degree range. Look for partly cloudy skies and some fog late tonight with lows dropping into the mid-50s.

For your Thursday (or Friday-Eve), after some patchy morning fog, look for mainly sunny skies. Highs will climb into the mid to upper 70s before dropping into the low 50s in the valleys and the upper 50s on the ridges overnight.

Extended Forecast
We start to increase those rain chances and the temperatures on Friday and heading into the weekend. Thankfully, the rain chances will hover around 20% and stay scattered until early next week. Highs rebound back into the low to mid-80s as we head into the weekend as well.

We'll hang onto those daily rain chances, but the good news is we are not looking at any widespread rain chances. We could see clouds increasing a little bit more Sunday evening into Monday and see the best chance for rain on Monday.

It looks like a warm and muggy weekend ahead, so if you have outdoor plans, grab the sunscreen and the water!
