First Wave of Showers Winding Down

Posted at 2:52 PM, May 09, 2019

It’s been another dud day in the severe weather department. The lack of sunshine has been the limiting factor for the development of stronger thunderstorms. The scattered showers and isolated storms that are out there will taper off as the night wears on.

A few showers could linger through the early parts of Friday as a cold front pushes through the Bluegrass. Not only will this bring us a temporary break in the action, but it will also cool temperatures down. Highs will have gone from the mid 80s yesterday to the upper 70s today, and will continue to fall through into the 60s over the weekend. Conditions will remain mostly dry through Saturday afternoon. The next batch of showers and storms will be heavy rain makers into Mother’s Day.  One to three inches of rain will be possible between now and Monday. A reinforcing shot of “chilly” air will arrive behind the late weekend system. High temperatures Sunday and Monday will be nearly 10 degrees above-normal in the lower 60s. Morning lows will be the colder side too. Many spots will start off in the lower 40s, if not the upper 30s on Tuesday.
