WNKY 40 Weather Forecast

Forecast: Beautiful weather continues for the start of this week

Easter was gorgeous and that nice weather continues for the start of this week! There will be lots of sunshine today aside from some afternoon passing clouds. Temperatures will reach to right around 80°.

Don’t let the sunshine fool you though, we have a Flood Warning for Green River at Rochester in effect until 7AM Wednesday. By Monday afternoon, this portion of the river is expected to rise to 18.6ft. The flood stage is 17ft. The Reeds and Rochester ferries are closed. Watch for minor flooding in this area. KY 369 is flooded 1 mile north of Rochester.

We stay on the warmer side tonight with temperatures cooling down to the mid 50s. Clouds will increase throughout Tuesday morning ahead of our approaching unsettled weather pattern. By Tuesday evening, we have the chance to see the start of scattered showers. More scattered showers continue Tuesday night, Wednesday and Thursday. We will catch some dry periods here and there from later Tuesday-Thursday, but the middle of this week is going to be a good time to keep an umbrella close by. By Thursday evening, we’ll have a shot at heavier, more widespread rain before the rain completely ends.

That lingering system finally gets a nudge out of the Ohio Valley Thursday night. Clouds should clear Friday and we’ll stay dry through much of the weekend. We may actually have our first completely dry weekend in a while this weekend. We’ll have to wait and see though because our next system may be close enough on Sunday to bring us a few showers.

Temperatures all week will be pleasant. Right around 80° until Wednesday when we drop down to seasonal normals in the low 70s. Temps rise again to the mid to upper 70s for Friday and the weekend. Overnight lows will stay in the 50s.
