Last night's showers from Nestor's outer bands were localized and light. The next round coming in Monday will be more widespread and heavier. A strong cold front will slice across the Midwest before pushing through the Bluegrass Monday night. During the first part of the day the wind will pick up and it will get warm in a hurry. We are expecting highs in the upper 70s. Gusty showers and storms are possible beginning around lunchtime. The bulk of the action will be during the afternoon through midnight. There may be just enough heating during the afternoon for a few strong storms. Strong winds will be the top threat. It will be gusty outside of thunderstorms as well. A wind advisory may be issued for gusts of 30 mph to 35 mph. Heavy rain is also possible with rainfall amounts of 1" to 2".

Showers and the front will exit eastern Kentucky Tuesday morning. Then the door to cooler air will be opened. Tuesday's high will be in the lower 60s, even with the help of sunshine. We'll go back and forth between cool and mild days through late-week. The next chance for rain will come Friday and linger into next weekend.
