After a rainy weekend for some, we will be tracking a drier pattern ahead, but temperatures are expected to take a tumble later this week.
Rain will continue across parts of central and eastern Kentucky through this evening as the low-pressure system moves slowly to our north and east. Later tonight, this rain will start to let up, and even cooler temperatures will return for the overnight hours. Temperatures will fall again into the 40s tonight, but southern Kentucky could see the coolest temperatures overnight due to a bit of clearer skies than other regions. Winds will also remain breezy at times but should start to back off somewhat.
Drier conditions will return for most of Monday, with temperatures back into the 40s to begin the day. A mix of sun and clouds will be with us throughout the day, which should help temperatures reach the upper 60s and lower 70s by the afternoon. Winds will continue to be breezy, but gusts should remain around 15-25mph throughout the day. By Monday evening, some isolated to scattered showers could show up in the region.
We’ll keep our drier pattern continuing through the middle and latter half of the week, but cooler air will move in after Monday. Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will struggle to reach the upper-50s, and overnight lows could dip into the 30s for a few nights. Then by next weekend, we’ll be watching another system move in and bring rain chances back again.
