Chris Johnson's Forecast | Tracking strong-severe thunderstorms late tonight

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A strong cold front will take aim at the Commonwealth tonight while bringing a stout line of storms with it. All weather modes will be on the table with this line as heavy rainfall, gusty-damaging winds, hail, and even a few tornadoes are all possible.

The line should move through parts of central and eastern Kentucky in the early morning hours of Monday as the threat for heavy rain continues. Showers will hang on through the morning hours as much cooler air arrives. Conditions briefly dry out Monday afternoon as highs only top out in the lower 60's.

As soon as we get rid of this system, another one slides in on its heels late Monday night and into Tuesday. Once again, breezy winds and heavy rainfall become likely for parts of central and eastern Kentucky as the active pattern continues. Highs Tuesday will take another hit as thermometers struggle to reach the low 50's.

Conditions look to dry out towards the end of the work week as much cooler air settles in. Highs hang tough in the 50's through Friday and much of the weekend before we track more rain chances Saturday night and into Sunday.
