SLIGHT RISK of severe storms covers the entire state of Kentucky for Sunday afternoon and evening.

MORNING NOWCAST:
Mainly cloudy with a chance of a sprinkle.
8am: Mostly Cloudy 42°
10am: Mostly Cloudy 48°
12 Noon: Cloudy 52°

CLOUDY, A FEW SHOWERS:
After a mostly sunny and milder Thursday, clouds increase over the region today. However, we will still work some sun in at times and that combined with a south wind should warm us into the upper 50s. A weak upper disturbance moving across the region may touch off a few rain showers, especially during the afternoon to early evening. Any rain will be light and should end in time for most high school football games tonight. Lows tonight will be much milder, only falling into the mid 40s.

A STORMY SUNDAY:
Our warming trend continues into the weekend, with Saturday looking to be the better of the two weekend days weather wise. It will be breezy with a mix of sun and clouds Saturday, with highs climbing into the upper 60s. We should get through the first half of the weekend rain-free before showers close in on western portions of the region late Saturday night into Sunday morning. Showers and thunderstorms are likely Sunday – especially late in the day – as a sharp cold front draws closer. Some storms late Sunday could be strong to severe, with damaging winds, marginally severe hail, and isolated tornadoes possible. Highs Sunday climb into the unseasonably warm lower 70s. Wind gusts could exceed 30mph Sunday.

ANOTHER ARCTIC SHOT:
Much colder air dives back into the region early next week. We dry out Monday, staying that way through Thursday. Highs plummet from the 60s Monday into just the mid 40s Tuesday. Overnight lows plunge into the 20s for midweek before some moderation late in the period.

TODAY:
Mostly Cloudy. Slight Chance for a Shower…High 58, winds S-8
Precip Ch. 30% – Rain Amount: 0.03″

TONIGHT:
Cloudy. Chance of Sprinkles…Low 45, winds S-8
Precip Ch. 20% – Rain Amount: 0.01″

SATURDAY:
Mostly Cloudy, Breezy and Warmer…High 67, Low 57, winds S 14-28

SUNDAY:
Windy. Thunderstorms Likely…High 72, Low 50, winds S 18-32
Precip Ch. 70% – Rain Amount: 0.40″
