A calm Sunday but possible severe weather Monday


It was a mix of sun and clouds for most of Saturday with temperatures nearly 10 degrees warmers than Friday. Tropical Storm Nestor made landfall in Florida and is tossing a few rain showers towards Kentucky that could be a factor tonight otherwise should be dry across the Bluegrass.

Tonight, expect partly cloudy skies with a few scattered showers as what is left of Tropical Storm Nestor is throwing some showers through Kentucky. Temperatures stay warm similar to last night with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s.

Sunday, expect another day of partly sunny skies and calm conditions as the atmosphere recovers from the brief Tropical Storm and awaits a cold front from the northwest. Temperatures will stay in the mid 70s with light winds out of the south.


Things change up on Monday as a strong cold front moves into the Ohio Valley. Before the frontal boundary arrives expect temperatures once again in the mid 70s with windy conditions and gusts up to 30 MPH or high.

Showers and thunderstorms should be expected Monday afternoon with a strong line of storms pushing through central and eastern Kentucky. There is a MARGINAL RISK for severe weather on the previously mentioned line of storms, some threats could be heavy downpours, frequent lightning, strong to damaging winds, and flash flooding.
