Rain, Storms, And Snow To Follow Near-Record Heat

Rain, Storms, And Snow To Follow Near-Record Heat

After a hot Sunday, rain and storms will start to cool us down on Monday. By Tuesday morning, some areas could see snow in the sky.
Midnight Update: More clouds have built in and will continue to thicken into the Monday morning commute. Rain showers have pushed into western Kentucky through Paducah and are now moving into Owensboro.

We are still mild and breezy with temperatures in the mid 70s. As of midnight, Lexington is at 74°.

Meteorologist Michael Estime will update you on the coming rain and snow starting at 5 a.m. on Good Morning Kentucky.

Blue Grass Airport in Lexington reached 83° Sunday afternoon. The record high for the date is 84°, set in 1941. Although we fell short of a new record high for the date, it was the highest temperature of 2014 so far.

More clouds will build in tonight as we stay mild and breezy. Temperatures will drop into the mid 60s by Monday morning. By the morning commute, a few scattered rain showers could start to move into central Kentucky.

More showers, and possibly a few thunderstorms are expected throughout the day Monday, holding temperatures back in the low 70s for highs. No widespread severe weather is expected at this time.

The cold air will really start to push in Monday night into Tuesday morning. That's when we could see some of our final rain showers mix in with some snow or completely change to snow in some areas.

The ground should stay warm enough to melt any snow that falls. If a small amount of snow manages to stick to some grass, it will melt quickly.

Skies will begin to clear Tuesday afternoon, but temperatures will only reach the low 40s.

We'll start to warm back up on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine and highs back in the mid 50s.
