Forecast: Rain chances on the rise as Zeta heads toward the US

Good evening! A little more sun made for a much nicer feeling across South Central Kentucky even though we had a couple of isolated showers in the area. We’ll keep the chance for an isolated shower during the overnight hours and by morning, temperatures will fall to the upper 40s to around the 50-degree mark.Tonight

Wednesday starts out dry for most communities but showers along with warm temperatures will move in from the south as Zeta’s remnants move into the southeastern United States. We’ll see highs in the mid-60s. The rain will become more prevalent overnight Wednesday night into Thursday, and that’s when the heavier downpours and thunderstorms will be more likely, too.Futurecast

Thursday starts out warm with temperatures having barely fallen during the overnight hours…we start out in the low 60s but we’ll see highs around the 70-degree mark.

Much cooler temperatures will dominate the end of the week into the weekend. Temperatures will fall to the low 40s on Friday morning and after the residual rain from Zeta leaves the area, we’ll see partly sunny skies return. We’ll only see temperatures rise to the upper 50s though.

Beginning Halloween, we start a bit of a dry stretch that will last through at least Election Day. Highs will top out in the low 60s on Saturday with morning lows in the mid to upper 30s. By Sunday, another cold front looks to move through the area causing our highs to only warm to the upper 50s. By Monday, we’ll see morning lows dip to the mid-30s but daytime highs will finish in the low 60s for the rest of the forecast period. A few areas could see some frost Saturday morning and again Monday morning.7 Day
