Tracking Rain to Start the Work Week

Posted: Updated:

We have the warmth already. So what's a spring-like forecast without a little rain. Adding a chance for showers to equation starting today. Our chances are pretty slim, though. We are only tracking the potential for a few sprinkles or spotty showers. Any showers that pop up will be few and far between, and produce only a short duration of light rain. Most of these showers will lift northward into Ohio by this evening. We will remain dry through lunchtime on Monday. So pack the rain as you and the kiddos head back to work and school tomorrow.

A storm system across the Plains will bring chances for showers to the middle parts of the country and snow to Rockies and Northern Plains Sunday. We will stay on the "warm" side of this approaching system. Chances for rain across the Bluegrass the system tracks east on Monday. 

Monday will start off dry, cloudy, and warm. We are tracking highs near 60 degrees as the wind picks up ahead of this strong cold front. Futuretrack is bringing showers into the I-65 corridor around lunchtime. It will be a few more hours before the rain spreads into the Bluegrass and eastern Kentucky. Expect gusty showers during the afternoon and evening hours. The rain likely won't be heavy, but persistent for some of your evening commutes.

Rainfall amounts don't look all the impressive. Several computer models, including our Futuretrack, are putting out between a quarter and half an inch through late Monday night. This small amount of rain shouldn't cause any widespread flooding concerns, plus almost all of the snow has already melted.

The showers will exit the Commonwealth by Tuesday morning. We are tracking mainly dry days for the rest of the work week. There is a slight chance a sprinkle or flurry could hang on into Tuesday morning. Temperatures will take a hit behind the cold front. Highs will be briefly pulled back closer to normal through mid-week. However, another warming trend will kick in before the work week is over.
