Tonight, increasing cloud cover is expected for tonight with lows in the upper 30s.

Friday, scattered rain showers for most of the day with the bulk of the showers activity primarily focused to the morning hours; however, new model outputs do suggest a thin line of showers moving through in the afternoon and evening hours with the actual frontal boundary. Highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s.

We dry out briefly over the weekend before a giant dip in the jet stream sends another low pressure storm system towards Kentucky. Rain showers are expected to develop late Sunday night into Monday with widespread showers all day Monday. Fridge cold air moves in behind the showers starting Wednesday. As of now this appears to be an all rain event, with that said, some wintry mixing can’t be ruled out in the hills and mountains of eastern Kentucky.
