Rain chances linger into Sunday before we dry out into next week

Afternoon highs will be in the 60s much of the week after a cold front moves through Monday night

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After a damp start to the weekend across Kentucky and Southern Indiana, it now looks like parts of the region will hang on to some clouds and a few showers for Sunday. With a wave of low pressure spinning through the Ohio Valley and some moisture on the south side of it, scattered showers will be possible all the way down to the Kentucky parkways with the best chances into Southern Indiana. Southwest winds will continue to kick up on Sunday so expect another breezy day. The amount of cloudiness and showers will have an impact on afternoon highs with low 60s in the north and a few low 70s in far Southern Kentucky where there may be a bit more sunshine.

Heading into next week, a fast moving and mainly dry cold front will approach late Monday, bringing a shot of cooler but pleasant air for much of the week. After seeing highs in the low 70s Monday, we’ll back temperatures down into the mid to upper 60s through the week with dry conditions expected. As luck would have it, much of the model data is indicating our next chance for rain arriving on Saturday, which would of course impact Thunder over Louisville. We are still a week out, so we’ll keep an eye on those chances in the coming days. 


TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and breezy. Low: 50°. Wind: SW 10-15 gusts to 25 mph.

SUNDAY: Breezy with scattered showers. High: 64°. Wind: SW 10-20+ mph.

MONDAY: Mostly sunny and a bit milder. High: 72°. Wind: SW 10-15 mph.
