We've seen a few isolated storms across the Bluegrass today but most of the area stayed dry. Overnight we'll have a slight chance of storms with partly cloudy skies and lows around 72. Sunday expect periods of rain and storms ahead of a cold front. Some storms may be strong to severe with the main threats of damaging winds and hail. Storms will also produce very heavy rain and frequent lightning. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for eastern KY due to the heavy rain expected. The ground is already very wet so additional rainfall may flood creeks and rivers. A squall line passing in the afternoon and evening means the entire viewing area will get some storms. Be sure to stay close to WKYT through the day for updates.
As we start the work week, the cold front will move east and bringing rain to an end. High pressure will force in drier and more comfortable weather on Monday. Highs will reach into the lower 80s. Through the week the cold front will stall across southern KY keeping a chance of rain near the TN border but the rest of the commonwealth will be sunny. Temperatures gradually heat up through the week with rain chances returning before the weekend.
