Drier conditions ahead after a soggy weekend…

Areas across south-central and western Kentucky received 2-3 inches of rainfall over the course of the weekend.  Major flooding concerns for these areas resulted in many flood advisories and warnings as many streams and rivers exceeded their flood stages.  Showers and storms continued to track through the region and by Sunday afternoon, conditions began to dry out.  Overnight temperatures across the area were much milder as temperatures dropped into the low 50’s statewide under mostly cloudy skies.  Patchy morning fog developed late Sunday night and into Monday  but has since lifted into broken clouds for much of today.   Temperatures will be a tad warmer, as thicknesses do increase today, but the lack in the low level return flow and with a moderate amount of clouds in the sky, temperatures will only rise a few degrees warmer than yesterday with highs around 70º.


Latest Visible Satellite imagery for the Region. Decreasing clouds from west to east are expected through the remainder of Monday.

Heading into Monday evening, clouds should continue to decrease as mostly clear skies should prevail tonight with calm winds.  As a result, patchy fog could develop early morning on Tuesday.  Fog is not expected to be widespread, but more so intermittent and confined to the usual fog prone areas.  Low temperatures for Monday night are expected to drop in the low 50’s.

Tuesday we’ll see a weak upper level ridging begin to build over the eastern coast as we’ll be positioned between a high pressure to our easy and low pressure across the Central Plains.  In return, strong southerly breezes will begin to pick up as high temperatures will make a run towards the 80º mark under partly sunny skies.


Forecast Outlook:

Tuesday night: Mostly clear skies. Low: 56º, light southeast winds expected.

Wednesday: Mostly Sunny. High:81º, southeast winds around 3-6 mph.

Wednesday night: Partly Cloudy. Low: 59º

Thursday: Partly cloudy with a 40% chance of showers/thunderstorms. High: 76º.

Thursday night: Mostly cloudy with a 40% chance of showers/thunderstorms. Low: 54º.
