...Showers and Scattered Thunderstorms today; Then Cooler & Drier...
Look for showers and storms to continue across primarily Southern and Eastern Kentucky through the early evening hours, before becoming dry overnight. No strong to severe activity is expected, but storms will be capable of very heavy rainfall and frequent lightning.
A cold front will push through the region tomorrow, bringing drier and much cooler air to the Lower Ohio Valley. In fact, highs on Wednesday will only rise into the upper 70s to low 80s. Dry conditions will then hold on through Thursday, before chances increase Friday and into the weekend.
