Overview: After an incredibly cold week the upcoming week will be the complete opposite. Temperatures will be close to record highs as spring-like thunderstorms move in by midweek. Locally heavy rainfall will be possible on Wednesday and Thursday before a strong arctic cold front passes through early Friday.
Tonight: Generally clear skies early will allow temperatures to drop into the mid 40s. Clouds will begin to drift into Central Kentucky by daybreak.
Monday: We’ll start the day off dry but showers will begin to develop by the afternoon. Strong southerly winds will usher in unseasonably mild temperature in the lower 60s.
Monday night: A cold front will pass through pushing the showers south of the area but also dropping temperatures back into the middle 40s.
Tuesday: An isolated shower is possible but most of us will remain dry with somewhat cooler temperatures in the lower 50s.
Wednesday: A stronger storm system moving out of the Rockies will give us a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms along with very warm temperatures. In fact, we should be in the middle 60s which could either tie or break the record high of 67.
Thursday: More showers and thunderstorms are possible producing locally heavy rainfall two day totals of 2 to 4 inches. Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm in the middle 60s which could give another record high.
Friday: The cold front will pass through early in the morning causing temperatures to slowly dropping throughout the day.
Saturday: Saturday will be dry but somewhat colder with highs only around 40.
Sunday: Another shot of rain will move back in and with temperatures slightly below normal in the lower 40s, we could see a mixture of rain and snow in the morning before changing over to all rain in the afternoon.
