Happy Saturday! The weekend is off to a cool and dry start but some big time changes are on the way as the dry stretch will be coming to an end in the foreseeable future.
Clouds are increasing from the west, a few light showers are possible overnight, a light wintry mix can’t be ruled out depending on the temperatures. The best chance for a light wintry mix will be places north of the i-64 corridor and along the Ohio river. For most of us here in south central Kentucky, if we do see any shower activity, it will likely be in the form of a few raindrops. The chances for rain is very small.
This is a period where the forecast is a bit tricky. Starting off in the morning hours some areas could still be seeing a few stray showers. Shower chances will linger through the day but I think that Sunday should have more dry time than rainy periods. Thermometers may reach the mid to upper 40s for highs as a warm front begins to lift into the region. Rain chances really ramp up late Sunday night into early Monday. That will be associated with a low pressure center that will form near Texas and track our way! This low will pull in moisture from the gulf of Mexico, along with a strong southerly breeze. Thermometers may actually keep rising Sunday night.
Monday and Beyond:
As mentioned, thermometers may continue to rise Sunday night and continue into Monday morning. Along with that, very heavy torrential rainfall will move into the region. With the amount of rain expected in a short amount of time, there is a flash flood threat. This system also may have just enough energy for a few rumbles of thunder. Thermometers may reach the 60s Monday evening, before dropping on Tuesday. Another wave pushes our way on Wednesday that could have just a hint of winter on the backside of the system. Temperatures will be above and near normal throughout the forecast period.
