Soggy and "raw" Saturday

Cold rain showers to start the weekend.

Today was a nice break from last night's severe storms and heavy rain, and the incoming rain tomorrow. Clouds return tonight with showers following behind by morning. It will be an interesting set up as colder air to the north interacts with this upper-level system cutting across the Midwest and Ohio Valley. For Kentucky, this will be a fairly steady "cold" rain. Rainfall totals under an inch for most. Those areas that received two or more inches of rain last night may see some additional minor flooding. There won't be that much time for the ground to recover. On top of the rain, Saturday will be a "raw" day with highs only make it into the mid 40s. At least it won't be snowing, like it will for folks not too far to our north.

Rain showers will wind down early Sunday, and temperatures will bounce back into the 50s by the afternoon. Spring returns next week. Temperatures will remain above-average with highs pushing 70° around St. Patrick's Day. There are also more chances for rain and storms. Monday looks the lone dry day of the week. The best rain chances will come on Tuesday and Thursday, just in time for the official arrival of spring.
