Clouds to stick around….isolated chance for showers.

The weekend kicked off fairly nice across the area with partly to mostly cloudy conditions for much of your Saturday.  The ridge that hovered over the Ohio Valley region much of the week moved into the New England region and is now situated well off the eastern coast.  A weak, but dry front tracked through the area by Friday morning bringing a few isolated showers across parts of the state.  In behind the front cooler and drier air filtered in throughout the state bringing pleasant conditions for many.  Temperatures on Saturday struggled to hit the 80 degree mark as most of the area dealt with partly to mostly cloudy skies.

As we head into the overnight hours, generally calm conditions should be expected as high pressure and light northwest winds will keep drier, cooler air over the area.  Saturday nights lows will be chilly with temperatures expected to drop into the upper 50’s as clouds will continue to thicken through the overnight hours.

The light rains currently over southern Missouri will weaken pretty quickly as they move southeast across western Kentucky during the early morning hours.  Sunday morning will bring mostly cloudy skies with an isolated chance for a shower, especially across parts of Southwestern KY.  Highs for your Sunday will be very comfortable with temperatures reaching 77 degrees.
