Slightly cooler today, but heating up Thursday

 A few sprinkles were showing up on satellite and radar this morning with most activity not making it to the ground because of the drier air still in place. Temperatures started out in the low to mid 60s. We’ll hold on to extra cloud cover through the day with highs staying in the mid 70s. High pressure is sitting to our north over the Great Lakes and will keep control of our weather through the next few days. Extra moisture will continue to move in, so spotty showers are possible today through Saturday. Tonight temperatures will be in the mid 60s with mostly cloudy skies and some patchy fog. We’ll hold on to mostly cloudy skies Thursday temperatures climbing back into the mid 80s. A little more sunshine works in Friday with highs in the mid to upper 80s. A few isolated showers are still possible Friday and Saturday. Rain chances will pick-up Sunday and into the start of the work week thanks to the remnants of Florence at that point. Florence will make landfall around the Carolinas Friday as a category 3 hurricane. Some forecasting models are bringing some of the outer rain bands into Eastern Kentucky by this weekend.
