Midnight Update: Rain showers have diminished across the viewing area, with a few lingering rain showers in far Eastern Kentucky. With the rainfall from this afternoon, there will be the possibility of patchy dense fog for the early morning commute for Thursday. We will also have another round of scattered rain showers and thunderstorms developing throughout Thursday, with a quarter to three-quarters of an inch of rainfall possible. Tropical Storm Andrea looks to make landfall on Thursday, along the panhandle of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico side. Tropical Storm Andrea will bring heavy rainfall from Florida to the Mid-Atlantic coast.
Rain and thunderstorm chances will be increasing for Thursday and Friday, with drier conditions returning for the weekend. We are also monitoring the Gulf of Mexico, with Tropical Storm Andrea, which will bring heavy rainfall to the Southeast United States Thursday and Friday.
Tonight: We will continue to have the chance for isolated rain showers and thunderstorms this evening, with most of the rain and thunderstorm activity diminishing after midnight. Overnight will be partly to mostly cloudy with an overnight low temperature of 65 degrees.
Thursday: A cold front will move into the region on Thursday, and linger into Friday, bringing the best chance for rain this week. Thursday will generally be mostly cloudy with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms possible throughout the day, especially in the afternoon and evening. Thursday high temperatures will be around 79 degrees.
Thursday Night: A few rain showers and thunderstorms will be possible Thursday night, yet we should have a break in the rain by the early morning hours of Friday. Overnight low temperatures will be around 63 degrees by Friday morning.
Friday: Some lingering rain showers will continue into Friday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies and high temperatures around 78 degrees. The remnants of Tropical Storm Andrea will be moving northward up the Mid-Atlantic coast, which may give us some extra clouds through the day, yet rainfall associated with that system looks to stay east of the Appalachian Mountains.
Weekend: This weekend looks fantastic for spending time outdoors, with partly sunny skies, a high of 79 degrees for Saturday, and a high of 83 degrees for Sunday.
Next Week: Temperatures will be warmer for early next week, with highs in the low to mid 80s, with late day thunderstorms possible Monday through Wednesday.
