Rain and a few storms move in overnight

Things have been very nice for your Monday thanks to high pressure. Blue skies with a temperature warming through the 60s and into the low 70s was another treat. Clouds are seen moving in from the west as the next storm in sequence gets closer.

The increase in cloud coverage is the first sign of change with the active pattern we sit in. By the mid-afternoon most of the state will be covered by clouds and rain will be drawing near. Showers are expected by the evening for south-central counties. The Bluegrass and Eastern Kentucky may have to wait until early Tuesday to get the rain. Early through late morning Tuesday will be the best chance for rain and thunderstorms. After the low passes, showers will become more scattered in coverage and will lose intensity. This scattered shower pattern will last through the afternoon and evening of Tuesday and into Wednesday morning. Wednesday afternoon looks to be the next break in the pattern. That break will last until Friday when the next cold front arrives with more rain. Rain amounts through Wednesday morning will range in the 0.50” to 1.50” range with locally higher amounts possible. The fronts lasting through the week will bring temperatures down dramatically. We will be stuck in the low 60s and upper 50s starting tomorrow and lasting through the weekend. Overnight lows will also dip into the 30s a few times and could bring a frost situation, especially Saturday morning.
