Midnight Update:  We still have come lingering clouds over the region tonight, and will continue to have some clouds overnight, as temperatures fall into the mid 50s.  Thursday will feature a little more cloud cover during the day, with partly sunny skies overall, with the chance for a few isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.  Any thunderstorm activity looks to stay confined to areas west of I-75.

We will continue to have mild conditions for the work week, with some scattered rain showers retur...ning for the weekend.

Tonight: A few clouds will continue to spread across the region this evening, with mostly clear skies overnight, as low temperatures fall to 56 degrees.

Thursday: We look to start off mostly sunny, yet skies will become partly sunny by the afternoon, with a slight chance for a late day isolated rain shower or thunderstorm. Thursday high temperatures will be around 76 degrees.

Thursday Night: We will continue to have partly cloudy skies, with an overnight low temperature of 55 degrees.

Friday: A cut-off low pressure system will continue to slowly spin over the plains, just west of the Mississippi Valley. The bulk of the rain looks to stay confined to far western parts of Kentucky, and further west into the Midwest and Great Plains. In other words, we should stay dry across the Bluegrass region and eastward through Friday. Friday will remain mild with a high of 74 degrees, and partly cloudy skies.

Weekend: The cut-off low pressure system over the Midwest, will slowly move eastward by the weekend, bringing increased cloud cover and rain chances. We will have mostly cloudy skies for Saturday, with rain chances increasing by the late afternoon and evening hours. At this point, it looks like Saturday night into Sunday will be the best chance for rain. Temperatures will be around 68 degrees on Saturday and 66 degrees on Sunday.

Kentucky Oaks Race Forecast (Friday in Louisville): Partly to Mostly Cloudy, high of 76 degrees with a few scattered rain showers late in the day.
Kentucky Derby Race Forecast (Saturday in Louisville): Cloudy skies with a high of 64 degrees, and scattered rain showers through the day.

Next Week: The cut-off low pressure system will linger over the region into early next week, keeping the chance for rain early next week, with temperatures ranging from 65 degrees on Monday to around 70 degrees by next Wednesday.


I hope you're having a great first day of May! It's hard to believe it's already May in a sense...Mother's Day,... http://t.co/Iy2dPBPlLi
