A thin band of showers moved through Louisville this morning right as the morning rush was at its peak, which probably didn't help drivers involved in multiple backups and accidents. Most of the activity is south of the Metro as of this writing and the heaviest radar returns are moving eastward out of the area.
We'll hold on to a very small rain chance through the afternoon but most of us will remain mostly cloudy and dry. A cold front moving through this evening will spur a round of sprinkles that should quickly transition through the area around 7-10pm. These will be lighter and less widespread than this morning's round of rain and help to usher in cooler temperatures after today's high in the mid 60s.
High pressure takes hold of the area during the middle part of the week, meaning we'll work on clearing out the clouds completely on Tuesday with almost full sunshine on Wednesday and Thursday with highs near 60 each day. A Nor'easter heading up the New England coast will aid in locking in the high pressure during this time as it brings down cooler air from the north.
Aside from a few clouds on Friday with a disturbance moving through, we'll remain sunny and quiet for the rest of the week. Highs will slowly edge up toward 70 degrees this weekend and I'm coming around to the idea that we'll hit 70 for a high on Sunday and possibly even 70 or better next Monday. The GFS and Euro models are both in agreement on a trough and associated cold front moving in on Tuesday of next week, bringing an end to the potential 70-degree weather and toting along a chance of storms. We'll keep an eye out for any stronger storms since we could have some wind support aloft (although the parent low pressure will be in Canada).
