High pressure just to our south is providing dry air across the majority of the region and it will also aid in giving us warm air from the west and southwest. Highs today will be in the mid-to-low 70s with winds fairly light in the area. Shower chances increase, however, starting late tonight through Wednesday, but it will NOT be a washout in the Commonwealth. Late tonight into early Tuesday, a wave of energy will move through the region from west to east and bring light rain showers to the area. The rain will end around the lunch hour into the early afternoon and could bring upwards of a tenth of an inch of rainfall with local amounts up to a quarter of an inch. Highs Tuesday will be cooler though as winds will be more out of the north and northeast, so temps will only get in the mid 60s in the afternoon despite drying out later in the day under partly cloudy skies. Another wave of energy will clip south-central Kentucky late Tuesday into early Wednesday, delivering more light rain shower chances in the area. This will likely bring rainfall totals to less than a tenth of an inch. Wednesday afternoon will become partly cloudy and highs once again will only be in the mid 60s.

Thursday through the end of the week will stay dry, but also cool with high temperatures only in the mid-to-low 60s and continued light northerly winds. By the weekend, we stand the chance for stray to isolated shower activity across south-central Kentucky, but it appears to be light rain at this time. Looking beyond the 7 day forecast, conditions will continue to stay cool with high temperatures hovering around the mid 60s. Along with the cool air will be drier than normal air, so aside from the light rain chances on Tuesday, Wednesday and the weekend, things look to continue to stay dry for much of April!
