Things are quiet as the sun comes up this Sunday morning. Clouds are around, mostly low-lying in the river valleys with some spots dense. No precipitation expected this morning, other than drizzle from the fog. We will be joined by scattered showers and storms through this afternoon. Temperatures this morning are in the middle to upper 60s for most.

This afternoon will be slightly active as a weak cold front (#2 in progression) slides through. This front will bring a line of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. There is less moisture to work with, but heavy rain is still a possibility. The threat for severe wind gusts remains low, but there could still be gusty conditions. Timing on the line will be in the afternoon for the Northern and Bluegrass counties, and the late afternoon or early evening for the southern and, southeastern, and eastern counties. Collectively, rainfall amounts through tomorrow morning will range in the “few tenths” range with some spots collecting as much as a half-inch. Afterwards, the next few days look nice. Temperatures cool slightly, drier and works in, and things settle down…mostly. Small chances for showers will be here and there through the week.
