A couple of fronts

Rain this weekend brings cooler air next week

It’s been a soggy 24 hours as the first of two cold fronts moved through the Commonwealth. As of this morning, we don’t have much left, but a few showers are hanging around on the MaxTrack. Temperatures are running mild in the upper 60s and there is plenty of low-lying cloud coverage thanks to the abundant moisture.

As we move into the daylight hours and get some heating, clouds will begin to break. The mixing will also lead to shower and storm development through the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will run warm, but not hot this afternoon. Still, we should have enough heat to allow showers and storms to develop by the middle of the day and blossom through the evening. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms with the ability to drop heavy rain. Most activity will be centered around the southeastern counties this afternoon as that is where the low and the first front sits. Some showers will be possible to the Bluegrass Counties. Storms will die off overnight and we will be finished with font number one. Front number two will slide in tomorrow bringing back scattered rain and thunderstorms. This will be the last front pulling moisture out with it. After Sunday, temperatures remain warm, but the air will dry out making for a really nice forecast next week.
