A wet weekend gives way to a colder week

Good Saturday, folks. Rain has been common across the state over the past few days and the drops are going to stick around through the rest of the weekend. The only thing that can end the rain? A big blast of cold air sweeping in by Monday.

Additional rounds of showers and spotty thunderstorms will roll across the state again today. Much of the northern half of Kentucky has already picked up 1″-2″ of rain and we could duplicate those totals through Monday. The rain is being spread around over a long enough time period that flooding isn’t expected to be an issue.

Here’s your regional radar to watch today’s rain:

A surge of warmer air moves in for Sunday and that should cause temps to spike well into the 60s with showers and thunderstorms increasing. That mild air will come crashing down on Monday as a strong cold front enters the picture. Check out the temp plunge:

Temps go from near 60 degrees shortly after Midnight to the 30s by around noontime. That big drop will be accompanied by very gusty winds and rain that could end as a touch of light snow or flurries.

Temps for Tuesday and Wednesday will stay in the 30s for highs with lows dropping closer to 20 degrees.

This is all the beginning of our winter pattern FINALLY showing up. This is only the transition period with the real deal stuff working in over the next few weeks.

Make it a great Saturday and take care.
