Southern Kentucky will be stuck in a rainy pattern over the next 7 days. Fortunately, the temperatures will trend more seasonable, giving us a break from the cold we have been seeing.
Today: Clouds will stick around for much of today. A few peaks of sunshine may squeeze through around lunch. Rain chances will be on the increase this evening ahead of a cold front that will move through overnight. High pressure to our east will help pull warm, moist gulf air toward the region today, allowing temperatures to warm in the mid 60’s. Overnight won’t cool off much. Expect temperatures to remain in the mid 40’s due to the southerly wind.
Periods of moderate rain are possible tomorrow as the front pushes through. The rain will move in during the morning hours and spotty showers will continue into the evening. Up to a half inch of rain looks like a good bet for most areas through Tuesday. Temperatures will be a bit cooler during the day thanks to the cold front. Some flurries are even possible on the backside of the system overnight Monday. No accumulation is expected.
The rain chances drop off a bit for Tuesday. Isolated showers may return during the afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures will once again be in the mid to upper 40’s.
A warming trend will allow temperatures to warm into the mid and upper 50’s by the end of the week. However, rain chances will be present every day. Make that umbrella your friend this week!
