...Increasing Winds; Rain Returns Later Today...

Rain showers have moved into Western and Central Kentucky this afternoon. Look for this activity to continue progessing east with a cold front through the overnight and into the morning hours across Eastern Kentucky. Most activity will be light to moderate in nature with totals between a tenth to half inch.

This will be followed by secondary strong cold front moving through the area late in the afternoon and through the evening hours. While not much precipitation will be seen with this passage, winds will become very breezy. Sustained winds of 25 to 30 mph with gusts approaching 40 mph will be possible.

Those winds slacken on Sunday as high pressure moves in the area. This will once again open up the opportunity for more frost development by Monday morning.
