A line of showers and thunderstorms marches for Kentucky this evening as the next strong cold front pushes east. Other than the line, scattered rain and thunderstorms will be present overnight into early Tuesday morning before wrapping up. As of now, we’re running mild and breezy with sustained southerly winds between 10-20 mph and gusts up to 30 at times.

The line of showers and thunderstorms will push through this evening and light to moderate rain will follow for a few hours. This cold front will change up the feel of the air going forward. Before we get to the cooler air, we must focus on the storms themselves. The squall line will deliver a punch with strong storms & heavy rain. Damaging wind gusts are possible along with some minor flooding and abundant lightning. Rainfall amounts are on track to reach between 0.75” and 1.5” in most locations. This will help soak dry soil around the state. After the storms pass, the cooler air will rush in and you’ll feel it through the week upcoming.
