After another lovely and dry day, we set our eyes on the coming weather-maker which will start to move in Sunday morning and then bring the heavy rain through early week. First, we will see a dry evening and overnight period with lows in the mid 20s. Any precipitation we see will likely not begin until mid to late morning on Sunday as we begin with very dry air in place at the surface. Temperatures will be hovering freezing by then, so it is possible that our far northern counties could start off with some freezing rain. That is when liquid rain falls then freezes onto cold surfaces, but, again, the moisture will have a tough time overcoming the dry air. No ice accumulation is expected in KY, but if you plan to travel north toward Cincinnati, that is where you would have a better chance to come in contact with some slippery spots on roads.
Temperatures will take off and warm up as the day progresses changing any frozen precipitation over to rain for the afternoon. Most rain for Sunday will be light, but we'll really see some soaking showers throughout the day Monday. In fact, 1 to 2 inches of rain is expected especially here in central KY by Monday night. Southern KY will likely hang out around the 1 inch of rain. Monday's highs will be in the low 50s. Once we work our way into Tuesday, we will dry back out and keep mild before our next system moves in between Wednesday night and Thursday.
