Now that we are finished with the wintry mix from the morning we can focus on what lies ahead this week and first things first: the rain. It will be light and scattered showers tonight with some fog developing, then the more soaking rain will move in in time for your morning commute. Plan on having the umbrella around for the entire day as most of the state will see moderate to heavy showers and maybe even a thunderstorm in the afternoon with the passage of the cold front. Temperatures will begin in the mid/upper 30s for the morning so it will be a cold rain, then we will see a jump in temperatures throughout the day.

Central KY will see highs around 50 degrees likely, but southern KY, who will likely see less rain, will could be looking at highs near 60 degrees or even mid 60s! The warm front will begin in the south and slowly move north keeping the heaviest rain near the I-64 corridor. Lexington and central KY are looking at near two inches of rain for Monday. Southern KY should look for one inch or less and eastern KY should range between one and two inches. There is also a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms mainly in western KY, but includes our viewing area south of I-64 and west of I-75. The main threat with potential storms will be strong wind. We will dry out for Tuesday and see high temperatures in the 50s and 60s across the state which will be a nice break from the wet and wintry weather, which we could see some more of by mid week.
