After a nice start to the week with sunshine and highs in the upper 60s, the pleasant spring weather should continue into the mid-week with just a minor speed bump or two along the way. A weak wave of low pressure will move in from the Central Plains overnight as a cold front drop in behind it from the northwest. This will bring a few scattered showers to Kentucky and Southern Indiana but most of these will fall during the overnight hours. A few lingering clouds could hang early Tuesday morning before more sunshine returns. There will be a gusty northwest wind around Tuesday so despite the sunshine, it may feel a bit cool at times with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. Wednesday is looking even better with additional sunshine and highs in the upper 60s as our late week storm system gets cranked up to our west.
Heading into Thursday, a solid area of low pressure will make its way right across Kentucky and with plenty of moisture associated with it, expect a wet day with occasional rain and thunderstorms with highs in the mid-60s. Some locations could pick up around 1” of rain or more by the time this system exits the area. Another quick hitting system arrives late Friday and into Saturday with a few additional showers and highs in the upper 60s. The second half of the weekend is a bit more up in the air as the model data hasn’t synced up regarding more rain chances, so a passing shower is possible with cool highs in the upper 50s. Early next week looks dry for now with highs remaining a bit below average in the mid-60s.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. A few passing showers. Low: 51. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny, breezy and cooler. High: 61. Wind: NW 15-30 mph.
WEDNESDAY: More sunshine and milder! High: 67. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
