Sunday 3:30 a.m. Update: All severe weather watches and warnings have been canceled in Kentucky.

Rain showers continue across the region with breezy winds, but the strongest storms at the system's leading edge have weakened below severe levels. Stay away from any downed power lines as you head out Sunday and if you come across a flooded roadway, Turn Around, Don't Drown.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for parts of central and southern Kentucky, including Lexington, through 3 a.m. Sunday.
A Tornado Watch has been issued for Adair, Casey, Taylor. and Russell Counties through 3 a.m. Sunday.

A line of storms will push through Kentucky Saturday night into Sunday morning from west to east. These storms will produce heavy rainfall and could reach severe levels, with the main threat being damaging winds. An isolated tornado will also be possible.

We will stay windy and warm overnight with temperatures dropping to about 60° by Sunday morning as the last rain showers finally push east out of Kentucky.

The rest of Sunday should be dry and mostly cloudy as cooler air slowly moves in. Temperatures will drop into the low 50s Sunday afternoon.

A few rain and snow showers will be possible Monday morning with temperatures in the mid 30s.

We will continue to see cooler air build in, keeping afternoon highs Monday in the mid 30s.
