A stubborn area of low pressure continues to spin to our East which will mean we're not 100% done with the rain chances just yet. Thankfully, we're close to drying out and warming up...back to the 80s we go.
That slow moving low along a stalled front will mean pop up showers, isolated storm or two, this afternoon. A lot of the forecast will be dependant on cloud cover today. We will see a few cloud breaks...especially to our North and West where sunshine continues to invade a low cloud deck. With the sunshine and the daytime heating plus a low in the area conditions will result in possible wet weather this afternoon. It won't be widespread and we're not expecting any severe weather...so more of a pain if anything. Areas that see some sunshine will warm quickly into the mid 70s...for most of us, under cloudy to mostly cloudy skies today, upper 60s and low 70s will be the norm. We're shooting for a high of 72 degrees today in Louisville. So as we head throughout the rest of the day lingering showers, isolated storm, possible with gradual drying by dinner time. Outdoor lunch plans...ball practice after school...it may be soggy for some...but it will be short lived. You may want to have a plan B if you hate the rain or are doing anything weather dependant...but remember, any showers that do form will quickly diminish.
The low scoots just enough to our East that drying conditions will prevail in addition to breaks in the cloud. Overnight sky conditions will remain partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid to upper 50s across the region. Tonight will start the trend of nice conditions over the next several days
The extended forecast looks rather boring. (Fine by me:) A few rounds of high pressure will work in to provide us with sunny skies and in turn with much warmer temperatures. Some models are hinting at a mid week cold front that could bring a small chance for showers/storms Wednesday night. Yesterdays runs brought this front through Thursday/Friday and has now moved it up to Wednesday. It's important to point out some data also suggests this will be a dry front. We'll watch it closely. For now I've put in a small shower/storm chance primarily Wednesday evening and drying out by Thursday and through the weekend. Temperatures will warm into the low to mid 80s by Wednesday in advance of the front. As it passes by Thursday we could see a few degrees knocked off in addition to slightly less humid air...but temperatures will still remain in the upper 70s to low 80s across the area. We'll warm it nicely in advance of another front that looks to arrive late this weekend more so next week...that means mid 80s to end the week and start the weekend. While it's a relatively quiet stretch of weather we still have a few fronts we're keeping an eye on so the forecast may change. Hence the Thursday/Friday data yesterday compared to the Wednesday evening data today. We'll watch it closely. Have a wonderful afternoon! Kevin will have your forecast starting at 5:00 PM...I'll be back from 7-8PM.
