We’re seeing the bulk of activity move well east of the Bluegrass this evening as the trough of low pressure situates itself over the Appalachians. A few storms are still firing in our eastern counties with strong downpours, wind gusts, and small hail. Elsewhere, it’s small isolated showers or a mix of sun and clouds. Due to the introduction of sunshine to the west, we have temperatures running in the low to middle 70s where as the eastern counties still reside in the low to upper 60s.
Storms will wind down overnight as the low progresses further east and the heating of the day gets lost. The trough is associated with a low that will not move very quickly and will therefore keep our daily rain chance up slightly. We will see another round of isolated to scattered rain and thundershowers through Monday afternoon. The coverage will be much less and primarily east of I-75. Intensity should also be lower, leading to mostly light or moderate showers with a few building into thundershowers. Still, heavy downpours, strong wind, and hail are all still possible. Temperatures will remain cooler than normal, in the 70s due to a continued northerly or northeasterly wind. The air at the surface will also remain fairly dry leading to comfortable conditions. As the low exits down to Georgia, higher pressure is on tap for the rest of the week. We will still get some cloud coverage, but rain chances dwindle. A prominent southerly wind flow middle and end of the work week will lead to a very warm and humid forecast moving forward.
