Rounds of rain will continue to roll in through the rest of the work week, but we’re seeing a break in the action for now. Clouds hang tough for now, and only a few isolated or scattered showers are left on the MaxTrack. Temperatures are cooling slightly, and we sit in the low to middle 40s for the Bluegrass. South and southeastern counties still sit in the upper 40s and low 50s. There will be a small chance for some sunshine before it goes down today, but don’t expect much.

Rain will take a small break for the rest of the day and overnight. Clouds will break briefly thanks to weak high pressure skirting the Great Lakes. As we move into Wednesday, temperatures will have a chance to warm, despite the clouds thanks to a southerly wind change. Winds will pump in warmer air midweek along with plenty of moisture to fuel the incoming rain and thunderstorms. Temperatures will get into the upper 60s for Wednesday afternoon as the bulk of the showers and thunderstorms move in. Thursday will see some action, but also the warmest day of the pattern and the warmest since early January. We will likely touch 75 degrees in the afternoon thanks to the warm front. Thunderstorms continue for the end of the week and may get strong at times. This is the cold front in the series and will deliver another round of cold air just in time for the weekend. Expect a sharp temperature drop from the 70s back into the 40s for the upcoming weekend. At least we get mostly sunny skies to go along with it.
