Midnight Update: We still have plenty of clouds over us tonight, and will continue to have plenty of clouds over us now through early next week.  The latest weather models hold off the bulk of the rain for Central and Eastern KY until Saturday afternoon (Central KY) and Saturday night (Eastern KY).  Rain showers look to move into Louisville around midday Saturday, so have the rain gear with you if you're heading to the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.  We will have mid 70s for Friday, and then lower 60s for the weekend.
We will have a mild and dry end to the work week, before cooler air and rain showers return for the we...ekend.

Tonight: We will continue to have mostly cloudy skies overnight with low temperatures around 57 degrees.

Friday: Mostly cloudy skies will continue throughout the day, with a high temperature of 75 degrees. Any rain showers look to stay confined to far western parts of Kentucky, west of I-65. Friday will also be a little breezy with southeast winds 5-15 mph.

Friday Night: Cloudy skies will be around with a chance for a few isolated rain showers west of I-75 and south of I-64. Overnight low temperatures will be around 51 degrees.

Saturday: A slow moving low pressures system will approach us from the west, with rain showers increasing throughout the day from west to east. Far eastern and northeastern parts of Kentucky may even miss out on most of the rain until Saturday night. In general we will have scattered rain showers throughout the day, especially as the day goes on. Saturday high temperatures will be around 63 degrees. Rainfall amounts look to be between 0.10” and 0.25”.
