A rainy start to a colder week

Good Monday, everyone. Showers and strong thunderstorms are rumbling across the state early today, with more rain to follow. This action kicks off a much colder week of weather across central and eastern Kentucky.

Storms very early this morning can still pack a high wind punch. This action sinks into southern Kentucky this afternoon, with leftover showers to the north. Temps drop through the 50s behind the boundary.

Here are your radar tracking tools:

The potent cold front responsible for the early storms will slow down and become stationary across southern Kentucky this evening. That allows waves of low pressure to develop along the front, leading to chilly rains carrying us through the middle of the week:

Temps for the rest of the week into the weekend will run much colder than normal:

A few days of highs in the 40s appear likely from Tuesday through the upcoming weekend. That’s when another system rolls in here, likely bringing more chilly rains:

As I said, this is a much colder week than the one we are coming out of. The overall look to the pattern over the next few weeks will feature our typical back and forth setup for temps.

Make it  a great Monday and take care.
