...Near 80's By Tuesday!!! Second Half Looks Very Wet But Warm ...

Rain will move in late tonight and into Monday morning with lows in the mid 40s to low 50s tonight. Temperatures will hit the 70s Monday and will make a run for 80 degrees on Tuesday! The second half of the week looks quite wet, but still warm. Beginning on Monday and extending into next weekend, the state will see a prolonged period of rainfall, heavy at times, especially west.

Several rounds of rainfall are likely mid week onward across Kentucky. The axis of heaviest rainfall looks to be across western Kentucky where in excess of 3+ inches are possible. With soils saturated and area streams and rivers running high, additional flooding is likely where the heaviest rainfall occurs.
