Good Monday, everyone. We have a cold front pressing toward the state, and it will give us an increase in rain chances through Tuesday. This front continues to be part of an overall active spring setup.
After a super-mild Sunday, temps should come down some Monday due to more clouds and scattered showers. Highs should range from the middle 50s in areas getting the showers to the low 60s for areas getting in on the dry.
Monday’s showers are the opening act to a stronger line of showers and storms blowing in Tuesday. This action is just ahead of a cold front dropping in from the northwest:
Seasonally cool air moves in behind that for the middle of the week, but another system can bring in some showers by Friday. This is ahead of a more potent storm taking aim at our region this weekend. This one could bring some hefty rainfall to the region:
This pattern favors a big temperature gradient setting up from north to south across the country. Some big storm systems have been known to work along that gradient, leading to a lot of active weather. The Bluegrass State appears to be in this zone.
Have a great Monday and take care.
