Showery, dry, then stormy

On and off rain chances into the new week.

Post-tropical storm Nestor is currently cutting across the southeastern US. The outer bands of this system will just clip the Commonwealth. Southeastern counties will have the "best" chances for a few showers this evening and overnight. For the rest of us, clouds will increase, a stray shower can't be ruled out, and temperatures will stay on the warm side tonight with lows in the lower 50s. Showers will quickly fizzle tomorrow morning. Clouds will be a little stubborn to clear, but we will see some sunshine by the afternoon with highs back in the lower 70s.

A better chance for rain and storms will arrive Monday night. A strong cold front will slice across the Midwest and eventually the Bluegrass. Some storms could be on the strong side with gusty winds and heavy rain. This round of storms will also trigger an up and down temperature trend for the upcoming week. Highs will rocket close to 80° on Monday before sliding back into the lower 60s on Tuesday. The cool then mild cycle will be on repeat through late week.
