Showers and storms continue to struggle eastward across I-65/I-71 as of this late morning. The cluster will eventually spread into the Bluegrass and I-75 region later this afternoon with parts of Eastern Kentucky not even seeing a drop of rain until late this evening and overnight. While the severe threat remains west of I-65, some storms could be strong with brief heavy rain, frequent lightning, small hail and some high gusts possible. An isolated severe is not out of the question, especially for places in our far western/southwestern viewing audience. Showers and storms become more numerous tonight and into the first half of Tuesday before ending west to east. Wednesday and Thursday look dry with another system bringing showers and storms back on Friday (and possibly lingering into early Saturday for Eastern Kentucky). The rest of the weekend will be cooler and drier with overnight lows dropping to the 50s (highs in the middle to upper 70s).
PREVIOUS UPDATE (6AM):
An area of low pressure will make its way across the Commonwealth late tonight through tomorrow. Most areas stay dry for the morning hours but an isolated shower/storm is possible later this afternoon for places near I-65. As we move through the evening and overnight hours, scattered to numerous showers and storms are expected. Some of these storms could be strong with brief heavy rainfall, small hail, frequent lightning, and some gusts. The farther east of I-75 you are, the later the evening showers and storms will arrive. Afternoon highs will reach the middle 80s. Scattered showers and storms continue overnight and will come to an end west to east as we head through Tuesday afternoon. It will be a cooler day with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Drier weather returns Wednesday and Thursday with another frontal boundary bringing showers and storms our way Friday. The weekend, for now, is looking dry, cooler and pleasant.
