NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Mainly clear with increasing clouds.
6am: Mostly Clear 61°
8am: Mostly Clear 67°
10am: Mostly Sunny 78°

SHOWERS/STORMS ARRIVE:
A potent storm system moving in from the Plains later today will provide us with our best shot at widespread rain in many weeks! Sunshine will give way to clouds by afternoon with showers and storms likely tonight through Friday morning. Today will be the last of the very warm days for awhile as highs reach the upper 80s before a cold front sweeps through. Highs near 90 degrees are not out of the question for some…a rarity for October! Friday’s highs will only top out in the mid 70s as much cooler, Canadian air spills into South-Central Kentucky.

MORE FALL-LIKE WEEKEND:
Some of the coolest air of the season will be felt Saturday. We’ll start the weekend with highs only in the lower 60s under a mix of sun and clouds. Readings moderate a tad with a little more sunshine Sunday. Sunday morning’s lows could be our chilliest in nearly five months…diving down into the lower 40s! A small chance for a shower follows the weekend on Monday.
