Clouds slowly increase before our rain chances ramp up into the weekend

While it shouldn't be a wash-out with breaks in the rain on occasion, you'll want to keep the rain gear handy!

After a chilly start to Wednesday, we enjoyed a delightful afternoon with full sunshine and afternoon highs surging into the mid to upper 60s across Central and Eastern Kentucky. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the sunshine as it will be a premium in the coming days as we shift into an unsettled weather pattern.

Tg Futurecast With Temperature

With high clouds and an east wind on Thursday, temperatures will remain pleasant but held in check so expect afternoon highs to back off a few degrees into the low to mid-60s. With a weak boundary stretched out across southwest Kentucky, a few spots down south could make a run at 70 degrees. The good news is that we should be dry from start to finish.

Beginning Friday, moisture will ride up and over a warm front just to our south, bringing a return to a few scattered showers to the area to close out the week. If you have outdoor plans this weekend, you’ll be dodging a few showers and even some thunderstorms by Saturday as much of Central and Eastern Kentucky end up in the warmer sector so highs should run into the low and mid-70s.

Tg Euro Extended Futurecast


If there is any good news, it shouldn’t be a complete wash-out with a break in the action expected beginning Sunday afternoon and lasting almost 24 hours into late Monday. Highs will continue to stick in the mid 70s as another wave of energy brings additional rain and storms to the region by next Tuesday. The bottom line…just keep that rain gear close by!
