After a great weekend of fall like weather we will start to see impacts from Hurricane Irma coming to Kentucky early this week.
Conditions as we head into the overnight hours and into the start of the work/school week on Monday some decent conditions will continue. Clouds will begin to increase and lows will be in the mid-50s, which will last into the morning hours. Throughout Monday, cloudy skies will continue keeping temperatures cooler in the afternoon. Highs by the afternoon and evening will only reach into the mid to upper 60s across the region. By Monday night showers and storms from Hurricane Irma will enter into southern Kentucky beginning a week long of rainy conditions.
These showers and thunderstorms will continue throughout Tuesday morning and afternoon so make sure to keep your umbrella handy. Temperatures to start out the day will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s. As rain continues across our region highs will only reach into the upper 60s by the afternoon and evening making it feel very cool outside. Some localized flooding is possible as some heavy showers fall across our state throughout the day.
By the middle and latter part of the work/school week rain chances will stick around but become more scattered and isolated as we head further into the week. Wednesday will still be anther wet day with scattered showers lasting throughout most of the day, but by Thursday things become a little drier with isolated rain chances to be spread throughout the day. Fortunately, there is light at the end of the tunnel. By Friday and into next weekend, models are looking much drier and even warmer to where we could see highs back to our average for this time of year.
