Soggy conditions continue for Saturday, clearing up Sunday

(WYMT) - Cloud cover and rain chances continue for Eastern Kentucky as we end the work week and head into the weekend. For a full breakdown of the forecast, read the information below.

It's going to be a cloudy night and we will see an increase in rain chances as a warm front works through with system #2. System #2 is another low-pressure system working in from the west. It will bring more rain for all of Kentucky on your Saturday. Lows will drop down into the lower 50s before we quickly climb throughout the day on Saturday. Rain chances tonight will increase back to 70-80%.

This Weekend
Saturday, the low-pressure system will continue its trek into the mountains, bringing us our rain chances up to near 100%. Thanks to a warm front, highs will reach the upper 50s to lower 60s on Saturday, even with the rain. Those warmer temperatures also mean there could be a few embedded thunderstorms. We already heard thunder Thursday night. A few more rumbles will be possible on Saturday.

While some of those could contain some gusty winds, they will not be severe. The chances for rain will start to become more scattered by Saturday night and should end early Sunday morning.

Despite a few showers Sunday morning, conditions look perfect for Sunday afternoon. Highs on Sunday will soar into the low-mid 60s with mostly sunny skies later in the day. If you have plans outside, plan them for Sunday. I hope everyone can get out and enjoy the weather before we go right back into the cooling pattern.

Extended Forecast
The first full week of December features two things: The WYMT Mountain Classic basketball tournament and some interesting weather.

Our weather pattern will be calm as we head into the start of the week. In fact, Monday will feature partly cloudy skies with highs in the lower 50s. A chance of rain will return late Monday and into your Tuesday. With lows down into the lower 30s, a few flakes could even be possible Monday night.

Tuesday will feature rain chances throughout the day with highs only in the lower 40s. The effects of the cold front will be present by the second day of the week. Cold air will continue to invade and we will see rain transition to snow once again Tuesday night. Lows on Tuesday will drop down into the upper 20s.

Those snow chances will stick around for Wednesday with a few chances for some light rain as well. It's too far out to talk about the specifics but models do like a wintry mix with highs in the mid-30s on Wednesday.

We will keep an eye on the system in case anything changes drastically. Stay updated with us on the WYMT Weather App for future snow talks and updates to the forecast.
