Good Tuesday everyone and thanks for making us your stop for online weather. We have a wild weather day taking place out there. A rain storm is bringing the possibility of early day high water to parts of central and eastern Kentucky. The rain will finally end before gusty winds and chilly temps will take over.
Low pressure is lifting northeastward today across the Appalachian Mountains. This low is bringing heavy rains to the eastern half of the state. Some rain totals may approach 4 or 5 inches in a few spots. This may cause some local high water issues. The steady rain will slowly shut off from west to east today as a strong cold front moves through here. This is what you need to track today’s rain:
Rainfall Since Midnight
Winds will gust up this afternoon and evening as the chilly air rushes in. Gusts may approach 35mph at times. Our temps will generally stay in the low and mod 60s for highs then drop quickly into the 50s by early evening.
Skies will slowly clear overnight and this will allow temps to tank. Our traditional cold spots may hit the upper 30s as everyone else hits the low 40s. Wednesday looks great with readings in the 60s.
We hit the 70s again Thursday and Friday ahead of our next plunge of chilly air. That arrives by Saturday as a strong front slams in here. Showers and storms will accompany this front and the air behind it should be even colder than what we see the next few days.
Have a great Tuesday and take care.
