Ahead of the cold front temperatures will once again push the upper 70s and low 80s. Southeast Kentucky has the best chance to reach the low 80s, as there will be a bit more sunshine in these areas. As the front passes, temperatures will fall into the mid 40s by Tuesday morning. Afternoon highs on Tuesday will be nearly 10-15 degrees below average, only reaching the upper 50s and low 60s. These cooler temperatures will continue for much of the week before we warm up near average by next weekend.
