Eastern Kentucky Weather

Rain Leads To Cooler Temps

A cold front is driving rain into KY. The rain will naturally cool things off, but the front will really bring the change.

These last few days we have seen temps in the 70s and 80s. You throw in plenty of sunshine and you have an awesome forecast period! Once this front breezes through east KY we'll watch as temps drop below normal and then some. This won't last forever... the warmer air will rally back!

This radar will keep you up to speed on where the rain is located.

As the front passes it will bring an increase of wind speed. The sustained winds will be somewhere between 10-15mph with gusts a little higher.

Accumulated Rainfall

Highs around here on Thursday are looking pretty cool when you compare it to where we have been.

Some of this data is trying to keep highs in the upper 50s. I wouldn't be completely surprised if this happened.

Another weak system will follow this one into KY and it COULD bring another chance of rain to parts of our region.

I might increase my chance if this trend continues. Well.. at least for the far eastern counties. Could very well be a cloud event!
