Surface high pressure ridging into our region from the west,

weather and below normal temps for the next couple of days. With
mixing today, dew points will probably drop to the upper 40s in
some locations this afternoon. After highs only in the upper 70s,
this will set us up for a cool night, with some of the colder

The extended will feature alternating periods of wet and dry weather
and below normal and normal temperatures. The model data is
depicting a weak frontal boundary moving across the region Monday

rain showers to eastern Kentucky. A ridge of high pressure is then
expected to settle over the region from Tuesday afternoon through
late Thursday morning. This ridge will bring dry and pleasant
weather back to eastern Kentucky for the middle of the week. A
series of weather systems are then expected to move across the Ohio
Valley region to end out the week and into the upcoming weekend.
Isolated to scattered showers and storms will be possible at times
from Thursday afternoon onward. Temperatures will start out quite
cool and well below normal to begin the period, with highs in the
low to mid 70s on tap for Tuesday. After that, temperatures will
average around normal for the rest of the week, with daily highs
varying from the low to mid 80s from day to day. Nightly lows will
start out in the 50s and will only fall into the 60s from
Wednesday night onward.
