It was a fairly nice day across the Bluegrass as mostly cloudy skies won out. Despite the cloud cover and a few peaks of sunshine along the way, we climbed into the upper 60's and low 70's for highs. Not bad at all! Hopefully you were able to enjoy the nice weather this weekend as some ugly shows back up in the forecast.

Our next system will edge closer to the Commonwealth this evening as a few showers move in, especially across southern Kentucky. Everyone gets in on the shower action by Monday morning as rounds of showers (heavy at times) works into central and eastern Kentucky. Due to the excessive cloud cover and ongoing showers, this will keep temperatures on the cooler side with highs in the upper 50's.

The low pressure responsible for the rain chances will spin out across the Commonwealth late Monday. As this happens, look for showers to hang around through Monday night and much of Tuesday. Highs reach the upper 50's and low 60's Tuesday afternoon as another dreary day prevails.

This system finally pushes east by mid-week as skies clear and mother nature offers a brief break from the rain. Rain totals will range between 1-3" for many with the heaviest amounts coming in to our south and southwest. Otherwise, look for highs in the 60's Thursday and Friday afternoon before another system takes aim at the Ohio Valley. This front will bring a round of rain to the Bluegrass before sending overnight lows back into the 30's. Despite the cold temperatures early on, next weekend could feature more sunshine with highs in the 60's!
