LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - As showers pick up during the overnight hours and into Sunday, high water issues could be possible across some areas.
After a bit of a cool afternoon across the Commonwealth, we will start to track a more active evening and overnight ahead on this Saturday. Showers will start to increase from the south and west with some of them producing heavy rain at times. This rain will continue during the overnight hours as well with temperatures slowly falling down into the mid-50s.
By Sunday, unfortunately, we will still be talking about showers for Mother's Day. Morning temperatures will begin the day in the mid-50s yet again, and by the afternoon highs will hardly get out of the lower 60s. As mentioned before, scattered showers will be prevalent still across much and central Kentucky with more widespread chances across southeast Kentucky, which is why there could be some high water issues for those areas. In all, we could see +3" fall across portions of southeastern Kentucky from this weekend's rain system.
By the next work and school week, some isolated and scattered rain chances will stay around for Monday, but then we won't see other small chances until the middle of the week. Temperatures will also be a little cooler than average as well with more of an April like feel for much of next week. By Monday highs only reach around 60, but then by the middle and end of the week, we will slowly climb back into the upper 60s and eventually mid-70s. Some overnight lows could even get down into the lower 40s next week as well.
