Midnight Update:  Temperatures are cooling into the lower 60s as of 11pm, with overnight lows in the mid to upper 50s, under mostly clear skies.  Friday will be partly cloudy with a high of 80 degrees.  There will be a slight chance for a few isolated rain showers Friday afternoon and early evening, mainly across Southern Kentucky. 
___________________________________________________________________________________
We will have more clouds developing for the end of the week and into the weekend, with an increased chance for rain showers. Temperatures will be a little warmer, with highs around 80 degrees as we head into the weekend.

TONIGHT: More moisture will start to return to the region tonight, with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Overnight low temperatures will be cool, yet not as cold, with low temperatures around 57 degrees by daybreak Friday.

FRIDAY: We will have a little more cloud cover on Friday, yet partly sunny skies overall, as more moisture streams across Kentucky. Friday afternoon high temperatures will be around 80 degrees, with the chance for an isolated rain shower for Southern Kentucky.

WEEKEND: With increased moisture around, there will be a chance for a few scattered, late afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms, with high temperatures remaining around 80 degrees for both Saturday and Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: We are also closely monitoring the tropics, as some weather models develop a tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico and bring it north into the Eastern United States by the end of the weekend and into early next week. Depending on what exactly happens with the possible tropical system, right now we are just expecting a few afternoon or evening rain showers early in the week, with highs in the low to mid 80s. Temperatures gradually get warmer through next week, with high temperatures back in the upper 80s by late in the week.
