Showers continue this morning primarily in the central portion of the state. A thick cloud deck blankets the region otherwise. Temperatures have dropped into the 30s for the I-64 corridor up to the Ohio and remains in the low 40s for some down south.

Rainfall amounts have reached the quarter of an inch to a little above for most of Central Kentucky in the last 24 hours. We continue to add to these numbers for a few more hours as the last of the current system drives through. Afterwards, clouds will hang tough, but we should be able to get rid of most of the rain by the afternoon. Drizzle and mist may continue into the evening. High pressure will be strengthening over the Ohio Rive Valley by the morning Sunday making for a better-looking day. We will have to contend with morning to early-afternoon fog and a cloud deck, but it should erode as the day wears on. Expect an abundance of sunshine by the middle to late afternoon for most. Therefore, depending on what time the groundhog gets out of his hole, he may or may not see his shadow. Temperatures remain cool through the weekend. Another couple of systems will slide in by the middle of the week upcoming. This will warm us up and bring more rain. Showers will begin Tuesday and not wrap up until late week.
