These past couple of days have certainly been soggy ones as we've watched a cold front move through dumping 2-4 inches of rain for a good chunk of our viewing area. Some even saw up to 5.5" of rain just since 4 pm Saturday and that was Morgan county. A few Flood Advisories remain in place plus one Flash Flood Warning for part of Jackson and Owsley counties until 6:45 pm. What is left of the rain will continue moving through and eventually out of southeastern KY by this evening. Now, it's time to look ahead to nicer weather. In the wake of the cold front, things really settle down. Sunshine will take over with a high pressure to kick off our new work week. Monday through Wednesday at least will be dry with sunshine.
More fall-like weather is coming up later this week, but until Friday or so, our high temperatures will hang out in the upper 70s for the most part. The warmest day should be Wednesday, near 80 degrees, then we get another cold front to bring more rain by Thursday. Tropical Storm Sally is also looking to head northeast from the Gulf later this week which could create some very heavy rain for the Tennessee Valley and possibly far southern KY. Until then, enjoy at least 3 great weather days.
