Steady rain will continue to slide east across southern and eastern Kentucky, as off-and-on showers keep the Bluegrass Region soaking wet. 
Half of an inch to an inch of rain is likely for areas near I-64, with 1" to 2" likely near Lake Cumberland. 
As the cold front passes, winds will remain fairly breezy but shift out of the Northwest as we fall into the middle to upper 30s tonight.
By Friday morning, the only lingering showers will be limited to extreme southeastern Kentucky. 
The Bluegrass Region will be partly cloudy, cooler, and dry on Friday with highs in the lower 50s, just a couple of degrees below average. 
High pressure will return, providing a beautiful, mostly sunny Saturday with highs in the upper 50s. 
Late on Sunday and through midweek, next week, a series of disturbances will cross the area, producing scattered showers and thunderstorms as a warming trend eventually takes us to near 70 by Wednesday afternoon.
