Rain showers sit widespread in eastern counties and spotty west of I-75. Otherwise, it’s a cloudy and cold morning with wet pavement. Use caution if getting out on the roads. Temperatures are running in the upper 30s, and low 40s and the high temperature will only be about 5-10 degrees above where we sit currently. The bulk of the rain this morning sits east of I-75 with widespread showers. A few spots seem to be showing up as moderate rain, but most is light or even down to a drizzle.

Behind the main line is a few spotty showers mostly consisting of drizzle. All precipitation is rain, except for a few isolated spots in the high terrain of Black and Pine mountains. Otherwise, it’s cloudy and temperatures are running cold, in the upper 30s, low 40s. Pavement looks wet across the area, so use caution on roads this morning. The next system we look to is a quick-hitting low that will slide across Monday into Tuesday. The low is weak, and the moisture will be depleted when it arrives, meaning precipitation will be scarce. Still, a dew light drizzle showers are possible, especially north of I-64 Monday afternoon through Monday evening. If you’re hoping to see the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction, you may want to think about driving west for a bit. Clouds will be breaking over Central Kentucky, but coverage will still be plentiful. Eastern Kentucky will remain cloudy through Monday night. Tuesday and most of Wednesday will be a break from the precipitation and the “calm” before the Christmas storm system. Rain is likely through the day on Christmas Eve, with a changeover to snow possible late in the evening into Christmas morning. Amounts still to be determined.
