Currently, temperatures are back by nearly 40 degrees thanks to the cold front that arrived late Sunday. Clouds are hanging tough, but some clearing will allow bits of sun through before it sets. Still, temperatures won’t make it much above 55 degrees, if even that. Despite the clouds, precipitation is non-existent.

Temperatures dropped 40+ degrees last night after a strong cold front rolled through Kentucky. What’s even more impressive is that despite the strength of the front, 90% of the storms were below severe criteria. Strong wind gusts remained through the day, but the thunderstorms that developed brought mainly heavy rain. Now, we sit in a recovering pattern allowing high pressure to keep us void or precipitation. Skies will clear overnight and we will have more sunshine Tuesday. A nice southerly wind change will bring in warmer air and we rebound to the low 70s for Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures warm into midweek. The next chance for precipitation arrives late week.
