Rain and Colder Temperatures on the Way

A cold front will invade parts of Kentucky tonight and Wednesday - possibly producing thunderstorms. The biggest chance for thunderstorms will be in Central Kentucky late tonight and early Wednesday. Severe storms are not expected, according to the National Weather Service office in Louisville, but gusty winds are possible, particularly east of Interstate 65.

More thunderstorms could return to Central Kentucky Friday night through Saturday night, the weather service said.

Meanwhile, the weather service said there appears to be less likelihood for thunderstorms in Western Kentucky tonight or Wednesday. But if thunderstorms do appear, they could generate high winds and hail.

The weather service office in Jackson said there's a chance for thunderstorms in the Bluegrass region near dawn Wednesday. And thunderstorms could roll into Eastern Kentucky on Wednesday. Frost is possible Friday morning and additional thunderstorms possible Friday through Saturday, NWS said.

Meanwhile, we've seen the last of summer-like temperatures for a few days. Highs on Wednesday will be in the mid-50s while it will inch up to the low 60s on Thursday.

On Friday, it will be in the low to mid-60s, the weather service said. Weekend highs will be in the 60s.
