Storms early, then a cool and windy afternoon

Wind Advisory in effect for all of Kentuckiana starting 2 a.m. EDT Monday until 2 p.m. EDT Monday. 

Starting our Monday with scattered thunderstorms across Kentuckiana thanks to a cold front and area of low pressure moving through the Ohio Valley. Current storms are dropping a good amount of rainfall and do contain some lightning, but appear to stay below the severe threshold as far as wind gusts go. That being said, we still may get a watch or a warning before all of the storms move east. We also have a Wind Advisory from 2AM EDT until 2PM EDT today. While conditions will be drying out after sunrise, things will stay pretty windy once these storms move out. Gusts up to 45 mph possible through the early afternoon hours. Today will be unseasonably cool with high temps in the mid 50s and overnight lows in the mid 30s. 

Temps will stay below normal throughout the workweek and conditions will be mostly dry. A few light showers/sprinkles possible Tues and Weds. Our next, best rain chance arrives Friday afternoon. Temps gradually get a bit warmer as we head into the weekend. A bit more rain possible by late Sunday.
