We caught a break from the rain today as the last bits of isolated showers in the region pushed eastward this morning. The high today is 83° with overcast conditions for most of the day. Scattered showers are likely to develop in the late afternoon in south central KY. The low tonight is right at a comfortable 70° with partly cloudy conditions.
Our next chance of rain comes on Tuesday as a cold front makes its way into the region. The high will be a bit warmer at 86°, and the low will be about 72°. Scattered showers with a few strong winds are expected to begin in the evening hours as a slow moving low pressure system in the upper levels triggers waves of energy towards the Tennessee Valley. The NAM shows areas with 2-4″ of precipitable water from tomorrow night into Thursday. This setup puts most of Kentucky at a marginal risk of severe weather according to the severe thunderstorm outlook. Though, the biggest concern would be for potential localized flooding.
