Sky Alert Weather Forecast
As we wrap up this soggy weekend, the rain will continue to fall. So far, we've seen rainfall totals around a quarter of an inch to a half an inch throughout Eastern Kentucky. Heading into tonight, the rain will pick up again and become more widespread. We could see brief periods of heavy rainfall after midnight. By 7 a.m. tomorrow, rainfall totals could be around 2 inches in our far southern counties. In addition to the rain, patchy fog is already beginning to develop as the day ends.
More rain will move through the region during the first half of the week as a stationary front takes its time moving across the mountains. Watch for patchy fog and rain Monday morning. Throughout the day, the rain will become scattered and light, but then in the evening it will pick back up. By Tuesday morning, rainfall totals will likely near three inches.
The areas most effected by the rainfall will be southeastern Kentucky and along the Tennessee and Virginia borders. Those areas are more prone to seeing locally heavy rainfall from time to time.
Once the stationary front moves out, a cold front will quickly fallow. It's the cold front that will bring us more rain on Tuesday and during the first half of Wednesday. That front will also be cooling our temperatures off for the second half of the week. The showers will taper off Wednesday afternoon, then by Thursday our weather pattern will be much drier.
Have a wonderful end to your weekend and an even better start to your week!
