Lots of sunshine has returned to central Kentucky, and that will continue to be the case this afternoon. Meanwhile, the final few rain showers will slide northeast, exiting far eastern Kentucky this evening. Highs will peak around 68 degrees this afternoon in the Bluegrass Region, but persistent clouds will keep much of eastern Kentucky a bit cooler. The final few sprinkles will end in the ridgetops near the Virginia state line tonight, and patchy fog will form in many areas late. High pressure will provide lots of sunshine and warmer weather on Thursday, as highs peak in the middle 70s. Most of Friday will be dry and even warmer, but scattered thunderstorms will arrive on Friday evening or Friday night. Saturday through Tuesday will be much cooler, with readings about 10° below normal at the end of the weekend and early next week, as low pressure stalls overhead. Showers will be widespread on Saturday, and leftover, lighter, scattered showers will linger on Sunday, Monday and even Tuesday as the storm system spins, nearly stationary, across the southern Appalachians and Ohio Valley.
