Midnight Update: Light to moderate rain continues to push northeast through Kentucky. Lexington picked up just over 2 inches of rainfall Sunday.
The heavier rainfall is now pushing into eastern Kentucky. We are finally starting to dry out near Frankfort and that drying will continue to spread east overnight.
Temperatures have dropped into the mid 50s with the help of the cooling rainfall. By Monday morning, we should be in the upper 40s.
Meteorologist Michael Estime will have the latest on our cooler weather starting at 5 a.m. on Good Morning Kentucky.
A cold front moving through Kentucky from west to east will continue to produce scattered showers and storms tonight with heavy rainfall. The main weather threat will be flash flooding. Lexington should begin to dry out after 1 a.m. as the rain pushes further east. The rain should completely exit Kentucky by the Monday morning commute, but eastern Kentucky could see a few showers early in the morning. Temperatures will drop into the upper 40s overnight.
High pressure will start to build in Monday, helping to clear skies. Cooler air will keep pushing in through the day, keeping temperatures from climbing above the low 60s.
Tuesday should be our coldest morning commute with morning lows in the low to mid 40s.
We will top out in the mid 60s Tuesday afternoon with mostly sunny skies.
We should stay dry the entire work week as temperatures slowly keep climbing, eventually into the mid 70s by Thursday and Friday.
