We are wrapping up this weekend with another fall like day before remnants of Irma start to impact our forecast.
You'll want to make sure you grab a jacket before heading out the door for any church services. We are starting out this morning in the lower 50s across the region with dry conditions making it feel a bit chilly outside. These cool fall like conditions will last throughout the day as well. A mix of sun and clouds will be around and moving into this afternoon highs will only reach the lower 70s. This is about 10 degrees below where our average is normally supposed to be and that trend will be continuing.
Moving ahead into start of your work/school week on Monday, the first part of the day is looking fairly nice. We will have an increase in clouds throughout the morning hours leading to cloudy skies in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will start in the mid-50s in the morning hours, but then by the afternoon we won't be seeing much of a warm up. The cloudy skies will limit afternoon highs to only the upper 60s across our area. Dry conditions will begin our day and last through the afternoon, but then by the late evening hours things will be changing. Remnants of Hurricane Irma will make their way into southern Kentucky and spread north in the overnight hours and into Tuesday.
By Tuesday morning, heavy showers and thunderstorms will be spread across our state so make sure to pack your rain jacket and umbrella. This rain will continue throughout most of the day and become more scattered by the late afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures will be cool again with highs only reaching the upper 60s again, but during the showers it will still feel a lot cooler. Some localized flooding is a possibility with this rain so make sure to travel cautiously if you live in an easily flood prone area.
By the middle part of the work/school week and moving forward rain chances will stick around but be decreasing overtime. Wednesday will be another wet day with scattered showers and storms throughout most of the day, but Thursday will be a lot more isolated rain chances as Irma continues to the east. Then, by the end of the week we are starting to see some much nicer and drier conditions return back into forecast. Temperatures all this will will be averaging 10-15 degrees below our average highs for this time of year.
