It was a beautiful end to the work week as mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures took over. Even better, as we head into the weekend, the thermometers are expected to rise as the sunshine hangs around.
Let's start with tonight's forecast. Overall, it looks really good.. just chilly. Clear skies stick around as winds calm. Overnight lows dip into the mid 30's with patchy frost a possibility.
Despite the cold start Saturday, temperatures will warm nicely into the afternoon hours. In fact, highs soar into the mid 60's for many spots with some upper 60's showing up to our south. This all happens under partly-mostly sunny skies. For this time of the year, it's right where we should be, so get out and enjoy it!
The pleasant weather hangs around Sunday but clouds really begin to thicken up. Cloudy skies take over Sunday afternoon as our next system edges closer to the Ohio and Tennessee Valley. Look for showers to break out, especially for southern and western Kentucky later in the day. Rain chances really start to pick up overnight and into Monday for all of central and eastern Kentucky. With that said, rain chances are late as much of your Sunday looks good.
Shower chances linger Monday and Tuesday before mother nature would offer up a brief break. As of right now, another system would swing in mid-week bringing additional rain chances Wednesday and Thursday. The busy weather pattern offers no break as more rain returns Friday and the weekend. With the abundance of rain chances and cloud cover ahead, temperatures remain cooler than average with highs in the 50's Monday - Wednesday. Low 60's will return late week!
Have a great weekend!
