Adam Burniston's Forecast | Great weekend ahead before Irma reaches Kentucky

Make sure to get outside and enjoy this beautiful fall like weather this weekend because rain chances increase for the work/school week.

We are starting off the weekend morning on a cool note with temperatures in the lower 50s making it feel a little chilly, so make sure to grab a jacket for this morning. Today is also college game day! If you are heading to the game today we are looking at perfect conditions. If you are tailgating, keep that jacket with you as temperatures will still only be in the upper 50s, but then by kickoff we will be slowly warming up into the upper 60s. Highs today across the state will only be reaching into the lower 70s making for a very fall like feel to the day and skies will remain partly cloudy. By the end of the game and heading into this evening things will cool back down into the mid to lower 60s and by nighttime we are looking at temperatures in the upper 40s.

These overnight cool conditions will last into Sunday morning as you are waking up. Heading to church services in the morning, you will most likely want a jacket or maybe even a coat. By the afternoon, nice conditions continue to dominate our forecast with a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day. Highs will only be reaching into the lower 70s again across the state, so it will feel like another fall day. Winds could become breezy at times, but overall we are looking at a dry and perfect end to the weekend.

By the work/school week things take a turn. Monday remains mostly dry with a late day shower or thunderstorm possible. Then as we head into Tuesday and the middle of the week Irma starts to impact our forecast bring showers and thunderstorms multiple days. Tuesday seems to be the biggest storm threat with widespread heavy showers that may produce a quick couple inches of rain. Some storms will remain around for Wednesday as well, but become more scattered and Irma continues to lose a lot of its energy and then by the latter half of the week things start to dry out. Highs throughout the week look to remain well below average for this time of year.
