Good morning, folks, and happy Monday!
For today, rain showers will persist through the morning, tapering off through the afternoon. Isolated showers possible this evening as well, otherwise cloudy and mild. High temperatures will be in the lower 70s. Not a bad day overall, as the rain will not be very heavy, and thunderstorm chances are low.
What to Watch For
Overall this week looks fairly calm with mild temperatures. High temperatures on Tuesday look to be in the lower 60s, with mid 70s by the end of the week on Friday. Additionally, after today, no rain chances in the forecast until Friday. Enjoy the nice week! Perhaps this week would be a good week to get out in the yard if you have some spare time!
This past Saturday, the “Thunder Over Louisville” event- part of the Kentucky Derby Festival- took place. The high temperature on this day reached a toasty 87 degrees Fahrenheit, setting a new record high temperature for the event. According to WDRB in Louisville, the previous high temperature in the event’s history was 82 degrees in 2004. This is quite a significant margin for a high temperature record!
Have a great week everyone 🙂
