Midnight Update:  A cold front is moving eastward through Central Kentucky, which will bring more rain showers and cold air for all the viewing area through early Tuesday morning.  There will be a chance for some snow mixing in with rain for early Tuesday morning, with no major accumulations expected.  Tuesday morning low temperatures will start off in the lower 30s, with mostly cloudy skies into the afternoon and a high of only 41 degrees.  A hard freeze is likely Wednesday morning, with low temperatures around 25 degrees.  Due to these freezing cold temperatures Wednesday morning, precautionary measures will need to be taken to protect sensitive vegetation.  Wednesday afternoon will feature mostly sunny skies with a high of 53 degrees.  Temperatures return to the lower 60s by Thursday, and stay in the lower 60s through Easter Weekend.
