Showers return Sunday evening with a very wet week ahead


After a few scattered light rain showers across the Bluegrass and a lot of lingering stratus clouds around the Bluegrass Region a lot of people were left thinking, what happened the mostly sunny sky day? Well a low pressure center in combination with a surface trough were suppose to continue to push off into the Atlantic but end up slowing so the low pressure center end up pushing wrap around cloud cover and even some spot showers into Kentucky.

Tonight, expect mostly cloudy skies with lows in the mid 30s.

Sunday, mostly sunny skies with showers late, highs in the upper 40s to low 50s


The weekend looks cooler and dry; however recent model runs do show some shower activity moving back in Sunday night.

The work week warms back up with highs in the 60s and showers likely almost every day. The pattern doesn’t look to break anytime soon. Expect showers and thunderstorms to return Tuesday with some potential for severe weather. The Storm Prediction Center out of Oklahoma City has already focused in on Western Kentucky for potential severe weather and we are four days away, this could easily move east.
