Sky Alert Weather Forecast

We finally saw a break from the dreary and chilly conditions. Most highs in the area topped out in the lower 70s, and the skies remained mostly cloudy. The good news is that the clearing out will continue over Eastern Kentucky this week!

Patchy fog is a possibility in the morning, but will clear by mid-morning. The clouds will gradually clear throughout the day, and highs will vary from the lower to mid 70s. By tomorrow evening, skies should be mostly cleared.

A high pressure system will move into the area by Tuesday. This high pressure will filter out any remaining clouds, leaving way for sunny skies on Tuesday! High temperatures will heat up to the mid 70s for the rest of the week. The sunshine will also continue throughout the rest of the week.

By Friday, however, we will see the rain chances returning. A cold front will push into the Commonwealth throughout the day Friday. This brings us the chance of showers and thunderstorms Friday afternoon through Friday night. This front will also usher in cooler air. Highs for the weekend will struggle to make it to the 70s.

Have a great day!
