As a weakening front slides into the area from west, scattered showers and some strong thunderstorms are moving into the area. Some hail, as well as the potential for strong winds will accompany the storms, especially in western parts of the area. A tornado has touched down in eastern Jefferson County, and while that individual cell will not impact our local area, there may be occasional, brief tornado spin-ups in the western fringe of the Bluegrass Region. Highs will be near 71. The weekend will feature cooler, slightly more seasonable weather with leftover showers and thunderstorms. By Monday, most areas will be dry, but an isolated shower may linger in far eastern Kentucky. High pressure will return early in the week, so the entire region will be bright and dry on Tuesday. Scattered thunderstorms will accompany another front on Wednesday of next week, but not before highs recover into the lower 70s. Showers or thunderstorms may linger in southern Kentucky on Thursday of next week.
