Chris Johnson's Forecast | Irma takes aim at the Commonwealth

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - As we kick off another work week, we'll watch the remnants of Hurricane Irma ride northward into the Ohio and Tennessee Valley Region's. While much of today pans out on the dry side, cloud cover will increase through this afternoon as rain chances ramp up this evening. High temperatures today remain on the cooler side with readings around 70º.

Winds will begin to crank up later tonight and into Tuesday as gusty showers and even a few thunderstorms become likely. Waves of rain will hang around the entire day as highs struggle to climb out of the 60's.

The remnants of Irma looks to spin out across the region into Wednesday and parts of Thursday before the rain chances finally come to an end. Rain totals between 1-2" are possible and some spots could see local high water issues if hit with heavier rainfall in a short amount of time.

The work week wraps up on the dry side as partly cloudy skies prevail. A warming trend takes over through the weekend as highs reach the mid-upper 70's under partly sunny skies.
