Midnight Update: A few light showers continue to push out of far eastern Kentucky and should come to an end very shortly. Skies are clearing just to our west and will do so across our part of Kentucky early Tuesday morning.

For now temperatures are in the mid and upper 40s across the region, with Lexington currently sitting at 43°.

Meteorologist Michael Estime will have an update on our cooler weather and returning sunshine starting at 5 a.m. on Good Morning Kentucky.

All rain has finally pushed out of Kentucky! Lexington recorded 1.71" today, setting a new daily rainfall record for March 18 at Blue Grass Airport. Over the last two days, the airport has picked up 2.31" of rain.

Skies will begin to clear in the early hours of Tuesday morning, allowing for a mostly sunny and dry afternoon. Cooler air will push in behind the cold front that brought us all this rain, making for a cooler day. Highs will be in the mid and upper 40s across Kentucky. Westerly winds up to 20mph will make it feel even cooler.

Spring starts Wednesday, but it won't feel like it. Highs will be in the mid 40s with a wintry mix possible during the second half of the day.
