Wednesday morning, April 18, 2012: Sun Returns to Bluegrass As Showers Continue In Eastern Kentucky
Good Wednesday morning, everybody. The forecast is split once again, between our soggy eastern counties, and the much brighter Bluegrass, this morning.
Here's a radar update at midmorning. You'll notice that eastern Kentucky won't be dealing with rain for the entire day, as showers continue to slide northeast.
Places like Somerset and London are already drying out, and more and more of eastern Kentucky will transition back to dry weather before long.
The back edge of clouds is making progress east, as well, and Lexington is breaking back out into sunshine at 10 AM. A few cumulus clouds will likely develop this afternoon, but we will be dealing with a bright time.
Tomorrow will be a spectacular day as high pressure promotes plenty of sunshine, region-wide. You'll notice the WRF forecast for 2 PM on Thursday produces only a few small clouds along the fringes of our area.

Most of Friday will also be bright and dry, before a cold front produces scattered thunderstorms on Friday evening and Friday night. That next storm system will become a cut-off low pressure system, and stall across the eastern part of our area for the weekend and into next week, bringing a prolonged period of unseasonably cool weather with frequent rain showers.
Thanks for stopping by the weather blog. Enjoy the next couple of days before things get cloudy and cool!
