Rain is coming up for the end of our weekend and start of a new work week. The cold front that is responsible will move slowly and then camp out in north-central KY for a day or so. As that happens, quite a bit of rain could drop quickly especially for southern Indiana, Ohio and northwestern KY. There will be a tight gradient of rain totals, meaning that one spot could see plenty of rain, while an area just a few miles away may see a significantly less amount. Areas along the Ohio River could pick up to 2.5" of rain in the next 48 hours. Those places could stand to use rain because they are in a moderate drought.

Here in Lexington, we could see around one inch of rain with southeastern KY expected to see much less, possibly nothing. The cold front will stall out and hover for most of Monday before leaving us late Tuesday. Temperatures will then take a pretty good swing in the upward direction. Want more warmth? Highs return to the mid to upper 70s most of this coming week.
