After a beautiful start to the weekend, soaking rain will drench central and most of eastern Kentucky on Sunday. The low pressure system producing the rain will become cut-off from the steering winds aloft, so rain will continue through Monday. Many areas will have received 1" to 3" of rain by Monday evening. Lighter, colder rain showers may mix with a few snow flurries late on Tuesday or early on Wednesday before the weakening system finally drifts away to the northeast. Highs will only peak in the 40s from Tuesday through Saturday. Although a weak disturbance may spark some rain or snow showers on Friday, MOST of the second half of the week will be dry and brighter.
Sunday: Soaking rain will overspread the area and continue through most of the day. More than 1" of rain is expected. Temperatures will climb into the middle to upper 50s as active breezes blow from the southwest. Late in the day, a cold front will push into the area, causing winds to shift and temperatures to fall. Winds: SW around 10 mph. High: 58.
Sunday Night: Rain will continue across the region as temperatures fall into the lower 40s. Winds: NW 5-10 mph. Low: 43.
Monday: Skies will remain overcast while rain showers continue to soak the area. Temperatures will only recover to near 50 degrees. Rainfall totals by Monday evening will be between 1" and 3" in most areas. Winds: N 5-10 mph. High: 50.
Monday Night: Under cloudy skies, lighter, off-and-on rain showers will occur. Low clouds will obscure visibility in the higher elevations. Upper-level low pressure will wobble over western Tennessee, and winds may become a little more active. Winds: SE 10-15 mph. Low: 38.
Tuesday: The center of the upper-level low pressure system will drift over the Bluegrass, and it will become colder. Highs will peak in the middle 40s, and some light rain showers may mix with a few wet snowflakes, especially late in the day or into the evening. Winds: S 10-15 mph. High: 45.
