A cold front is cruising through the Bluegrass late this afternoon/evening. Scattered to numerous showers and storms will end once the front clears. In the meantime, cells are producing heavy rain that may lead to localized flash flooding. Keep an eye out for high water. Everyone will be dry by midnight. Areas of dense fog will develop through dawn.

For those heading to Picnic with the Pops: set-up may still be a little soggy, but showers and thundershowers will end in time for the music this evening. Tomorrow will be a nicer, and drier, day from start to finish. We are tracking partly sunny skies and highs in the mid 80s. The forecast is looking good for the Philharmonic’s second performance tomorrow evening.

Enjoy the dry tomorrow before more unsettled weather tracks in early next week. We will be watching a low to move out of Missouri on Monday. Scattered showers and storms will return during the second half of the day. Additional rounds will move through on Tuesday ahead of a cold front. After the bumpy start, we are taking a trip to September with lower humidity and comfortable temperatures.
