First Alert Weather Forecast

Good morning!

It's the final Sunday of summer and it wouldn't be summer in Kentucky without a chance for thunderstorm development.

A cold front that moved in from Chicago last night is positioned over southern Indiana to start the day. This will allow for gusty winds between 20 and 30 miles per hour for most of the day as cool air moves in behind the front.

Along with gusty winds, this front will bring the chance for thunderstorms around noon today for most southern and southeastern Kentucky counties; the rest will just see rain this afternoon.

Daytime highs will sit in the mid to high 70s today, but with the entrance of cool air from the northwest, highs will slip back almost 10° into the mid to high 60s on Monday.

Fall doesn't get started until Monday night at 10:29 p.m. with the first full day of autumn on Tuesday the 23rd.

Stay safe and stay dry.
