We are watching the last of the line of thunderstorms roll through Eastern Kentucky. Intensity has come down to the point of just heavy rain showers and a few wind gusts. Temperatures are seeing a cool down after the front, but nothing significant. In fact, we’re still in for a nice treat for the rest of the day, after the rain leaves. Conditions remain breezy today with wind gusts occasionally reaching 35-40 mph which may make driving difficult for high-profile vehicles.

High pressure will immediately build in after the line of showers and storms exits. This will clear clouds rapidly. A nice mostly sunny morning and afternoon can be expected for your Sunday, with temperatures sustaining in the mid-60s for the afternoon. As we move into the beginning of the work week, sunshine sticks around. High pressure will keep things nice for a few days, even as temperatures cool. Rain will eventually return and looks to make it back by Tuesday. Rain showers will come with a low passing us to the south. Temperatures cool with the incoming system and we will be back to chilly for midweek only reaching the 50s each afternoon. A nice warm up is in store for late week as we get the sunshine back and rain chances drop. We should be back in the 70s for afternoon highs as we cross into the upcoming weekend.
