A wet Wednesday is on tap. Outside of some drizzle, we will see a lull in the action to start the day. Widespread heavy rain will return late-day and continue overnight. Some areas across southern Kentucky have already picked up an inch of rain. An additional two inches is possible over the next 24 hours, which may lead to flooding issues. A Flood Watch will be in effect through Thursday morning for areas south of the Bluegrass and Mountain parkways.

In the meantime, there is a sharp temperature gradient across the Commonwealth. To the south, temperatures will be near 60° while the Bluegrass will be stuck in the 40s. The next low in the sequence will move into the Great Lakes tomorrow. It will turn much colder for everyone on the backside of the departing low. There goes our early spring. We will watch rain to change to snow showers late Thursday. Snow showers will diminish Friday. The cold air will remain in place through the weekend with highs in the mid 30s to lower 40s. A quick-hitting winter system will push through on Saturday and bring another chance for snow showers. Temperatures will be on their way back up late in the weekend. The pattern remains active with several chances for rain into next week.
