The showers and thunderstorms will come to an end later on this evening as most dry out. Otherwise, look for partly cloudy skies to stick around with lows in the mid-upper 60's.

Sunday will feature more rain and storm chances. Yes, the rinse and repeat of a forecast continues for the Bluegrass state. The day starts off with plenty of cloud cover and the chance for a shower and storm. By early afternoon, a mix of sun and clouds take over as highs climb into the 80's. With a lot of juice in the atmosphere in place, thunderstorms will likely start to fire once again. It's the same old song and dance we've had lately. However, if we can get enough sunshine to really warm us up, this could lead to a scattered strong-severe thunderstorms Sunday afternoon. Main threats would be torrential rainfall, damaging winds, hail, and some flash flooding issues. Best chance for the strong storms will be across the northern half of Kentucky (hence the Slight Risk along 64 and northward).

By Sunday evening, the threat will come to an end but a few lingering boomers cannot be ruled out. Otherwise, look for lows in the 60's for central an eastern Kentucky.

As we look ahead for the new work week, more showers and storms can be expected. Highs will run in the low-mid 80's throughout the week with good rain chances Monday and Tuesday. A few storms look possible mid-late week, but it's hit and miss at best. Look for more widespread storm chances to return by next weekend with highs in the lower 80's.
