A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
We have a blast of awesome weather on the way to central and eastern Kentucky in the coming days. This means our 4th of July looks very, very nice!
A cold front will continue to push to our south through Thursday and may touch off a scattered shower or thunderstorm. Highs Thursday will hit the middle 70s for most areas.
The 4th of July will be sunny and very pleasant. Lows will be in the low 50s with afternoon highs in the upper 70s.
Saturday and Sunday will find temps starting in the 50s and ending in the 80s. More in the way of sunny skies will be noted.
Showers and storms look to return to the forecast as we roll into next week.
