Rain chances remain with the area tomorrow (5/19), along with similar risks for severe weather and heavy rain/lightning, especially across the southern half of Kentucky. Dry, but warm temperatures then return on a temporary basis Friday. Looks for highs in the upper 80s to low 90s with breezy southwesterly flow in place. Some record highs and lows will be in jeopardy.
The somewhat active pattern continues Saturday night and Sunday with the passage of a cold front. Coverage with this event looks to be a little more widespread. Combined with activity today and tomorrow, we are looking at the potential for a half to one inch+ through the weekend.
Looking farther out, the long range outlooks for next week below (May 23-27) suggest near normal temperatures and above normal precipitation.
