Midnight Update:  We have clear skies across the area, and no rain showers in Kentucky, yet we have been closely watching the line of strong to severe storms moving across the Great Plains today.  The severe thunderstorms to our west are associated with a cold front that will approach and move through the area Wednesday into Thursday.  Late Wednesday looks to be our best chance for widespread rain and scattered thunderstorms.  There is the possibility for some strong to severe thunderstorms on Wednesday, yet the bulk of the severe activity looks to stay north of I-64 into Ohio.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Oklahoma and across the Great Plains, who have suffered devastating tornado damage today.
____________________________________________________________________ 
We will continue to have warm and humid conditions through midweek, with the chance for widespread rain showers and scattered thunderstorms as we approach Wednesday. Milder and pleasant conditions return for the end of the work week and through Memorial Day Weekend.

Tonight: We will have mostly clear skies tonight, with warm and muggy conditions. Overnight low temperatures will be around 67 degrees, with the chance for some patchy fog.

Tuesday: The heat and humidity continues for Tuesday as afternoon high temperatures reach 86 degrees, with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Southwesterly winds will be around 10 to 15 mph. There will be a chance for some isolated showers and thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Tuesday Night: The chance for isolated showers will continue overnight Tuesday, with partly cloudy skies and overnight low temperatures around 66 degrees.

Wednesday: A cold front will approach and move through the region Wednesday into Thursday, bringing our next best chance for widespread rain showers and scattered thunderstorms. Wednesday will be mostly cloudy and warm, with a high of 81 degrees. Rain and thunderstorms will become more numerous through the day Wednesday.

Thursday: Rain may diminish in coverage by early Thursday, yet we expect to have more scattered rain showers and thunderstorms developing by Thursday afternoon as a weather disturbance swings through the region. Thursday will be cooler, with a high of 76 degrees.

Friday-Memorial Day Weekend: We look to have very comfortable conditions for the upcoming holiday weekend. Temperatures will generally be between 70 to 75 degrees Friday through Memorial Day Monday, with mostly sunny to partly sunny skies. There will be a chance for a few rain showers and isolated thunderstorms Sunday and Monday, yet coverage looks to be small at this time.
