Early Weekend Update: We have received heavy rainfall across portions of the Bluegrass, Eastern and Southern Kentucky since Friday evening. The chance for localized flooding will continue to be a threat as we go throughout Saturday. A stationary front will be positioned across Kentucky for the start of our weekend, leading to "off and on" rain showers throughout Saturday. Drier air will try and move in from the north on Sunday, which will decrease the rain chances for the end of the weekend for the Bluegrass. However, Southern Kentucky looks to have the chance for rain lingering throughout Sunday. Isolated rain chances continue for early next week, with dry and pleasant conditions returning by mid to late week, next week.
We will continue to have the chance for scattered rain showers tonight through the weekend. Any rain showers or thunderstorms may put down heavy rainfall in a short amount of time, due to the tropical airmass over us. However, we are not expecting a continual rain, just off and on rain showers that may last a few hours at a time.
Tonight: A stationary front over the Ohio River will sag further south into Kentucky overnight into Saturday, setting the stage for another round of rainfall tonight into early Saturday. Overnight low temperatures will be around 69 degrees. In addition to rain, there will also be some patchy fog, along with the muggy conditions.
Saturday: We will be in “repeat mode” for Saturday with warm and muggy conditions into the afternoon, with scattered rain showers. Most of the rain looks to be early Saturday and late Saturday, with a break in the widespread rain during the midday hours. Saturday afternoon high temperatures will be around 83 degrees.
Saturday Night: A stationary front will continue to stall over the region, with the chance for additional rainfall, yet rainfall looks to be more isolated. Patchy dense fog will be possible, with overnight low temperatures around 67 degrees.
Sunday: High pressure to our north will try to push down some drier air into the Ohio Valley, which will keep the best chances for rain over Southern Kentucky. Sunday afternoon high temperatures will be around 82 degrees.
Next week: We will continue to have the chance for a few rain showers for Monday and Tuesday, with lower 80s. Drier, cooler air returns by midweek next week with more sunshine and temperatures in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees Wednesday through Friday.
