Change is coming to Kentucky as a low pressure and semi-stationary boundary is setting up over the Ohio Valley. This plus a lot of tropical moisture will result in some heavy rains over the next few days leading into the weekend. Most places could pick up one inch of rain through Saturday night, but where storms train it's possible some spots could get up to three inches. A Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for most of the state including the Lexington area until 8 am Friday. The Watch excludes our southern counties like Pulaski and Laurel.

While we are needing the rain, too much of it is not good especially in a short amount of time. The good news is that the cloud cover along with rain will help to keep our daily high temperatures below normal and into the low 80s instead of the low 90s. This cooler trend should stay put through Friday, the weekend and even early next week. Humidity levels will still be high making it feel very sticky outside.
