SUNDAY 2 A.M UPDATE: The Severe Thunderstorm Watch for central Kentucky has been canceled for the night.
A number of rain showers and storms continue across the area with heavy rainfall, lightning, and gusty winds. These storms will stay below severe levels as they continue to push east.
The rain has cooled us off for the night. Most cities are in the upper 60s to lower 70s as of 2 a.m. Sunday.
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for central Kentucky through 4 a.m. Sunday. Damaging winds, heavy rain, and frequent lightning will be possible with this line of storms.
A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for far northern Kentucky from late Saturday night through Sunday morning. Heavy rain is possible in the area Saturday night and could produce flash flooding.
Forecast: A line of strong storms is moving through Indiana towards Kentucky. If it holds together, heavy rainfall, frequent lightning, and strong winds will be possible, mainly north of I-64. The rest of Kentucky could also see showers and storms overnight into Sunday morning. Temperatures will fall into the mid 60s.
Strong to severe storms will be possible Sunday afternoon and evening. The greatest threat for severe storms will be areas north and east of Lexington, but anyone could see severe weather. The greatest threat from these storms will be damaging winds and large hail, but an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out.
Before storms arrive Sunday, most cities will see a mix of sunshine and clouds with highs in the upper 80s.
The cold front that kicks off Sunday's storms will bring cooler and less humid air in for the workweek. Highs will be in the mid 70s Monday and Tuesday with a few spotty showers and storms.
Wednesday is looking mostly sunny with highs near 80 again.
