As we move into weekend mode, we also have to switch gears with the weather. The past few days have been lovely with sun and dry, but today brings a shot at spotty rain showers, while Sunday will be the better chance for soaking rain and storms. Showers will be very few and far between and light today, but cloud cover will increase as temperatures continue into the upper 80s/90 degrees. Thunder chances remain very low today.
Heading into the second half of the weekend, we see a low-pressure arrival, sending a few waves of soaking rains and thunderstorms with a few strong wind gusts through Sunday. A marginal risk for severe storms will exist over far eastern and western KY tomorrow. Rain totals look to remain higher (1" or over) in western KY, while our area hopefully will receive half an inch or so through late Monday. After Monday, we will dry out and see much more sun as the heat cranks back up to the mid and even upper 90s!
