Midnight Update:  A line of rain showers and strong thunderstorms in Tennessee, will lift northeast into Central Kentucky through the early morning hours of Tuesday.  As these rain showers and thunderstorms move into Central Kentucky, the thunderstorms will be diminishing in strengthen.  Heavy rainfall looks to be the biggest threat through early Tuesday.  More rain showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the day Tuesday, with a high temperature of 78 degrees.  Lingering rain and thunderstorm chances will continue into Tuesday night and Wednesday.  Wednesday high temperatures will be around 80 degrees.  Isolated rain showers will be possible for Thursday, with widely scattered rain showers possible Friday, with highs remaining around 80 degrees.  Isolated rain showers and thunderstorms will be possible this weekend, with highs in the lower 80s. 
We will have several chances for rain beginning tonight through Wednesday. Tonight will be more isolated, light rain showers. Better chances for more widespread rainfall return Tuesday through Wednesday, as a low pressure system moves out of the Central United States, and moves into the Great Lakes region by Wednesday, lifting a warm front through Kentucky on Tuesday, followed by a cold front on Wednesday. Temperatures will stay seasonal this week, with upper 70s to low 80s, with warmer and drier conditions returning for Father’s Day Weekend.

TONIGHT: Rain showers and thunderstorms will be isolated early tonight, with some patchy fog possible overnight. Skies will stay mostly cloudy, with a mild overnight low temperature of 64 degrees.

TUESDAY: Skies will continue to be cloudy to mostly cloudy through the day, with widespread rain showers and thunderstorms possible into the afternoon hours. Some thunderstorms could be strong to severe, with the best chance for any severe weather in South Central Kentucky, closer to the Tennessee state line. Tuesday afternoon high temperatures will be around 78 degrees. A warm front will lift through Kentucky on Tuesday, which will bring in warmer and more humid air.

TUESDAY NIGHT: Scattered rain showers and thunderstorm chances will linger for Tuesday night, with overnight low temperatures around 65 degrees.

WEDNESDAY: More rain and thunderstorm chances will continue for Wednesday, yet the activity will be more scattered in nature. Wednesday will be a little warmer, with a high temperature of 80 degrees.

THURSDAY:  Isolated rain showers and thunderstorms will be possible, with partly sunny skies.  Afternoon high temperatures will be around 81 degrees.

FRIDAY:  Scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will be possible on Friday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies.  Friday afternoon high temperatures will be around 80 degrees.
