Impacts from Ida to our south and the stalled front to our north include the heavy rainfall, with totals generally being between two to four inches and locally higher amounts possible (especially east of I-65). In addition, we’ll have east winds with gusts as high as 35 miles per hour. Tuesday will be a cloudy day with periods of rain throughout the day and due to the clouds and rain, high temperatures will only be around the low-to-mid 70s for most.

Ida will move towards the north and east throughout the day Tuesday and pass south-central Kentucky on Wednesday early in the morning. This is when we expect the rain coverage to decrease. Stray showers will be possible on Wednesday morning - mainly for folks east of I-65 - as Ida moves out along with the cold front passing through! From midday onwards on Wednesday, we expect decreasing cloud coverage with highs only in the upper 70s and low 80s along with breezy northerly winds. From Thursday through the weekend, we expect dry, comfortable air along with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the low 80s during the day followed by mostly clear skies and low temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s at night.
