Discussion:
A cold front is draped across eastern Texas and Oklahoma. This will continue to progress our way bringing with it showers with a chance of thunderstorms. The system will arrive around midnight and bring rain lasting until 4am. There will be a short break in the precip. before another line of scattered showers passes through. This second line will be out of our area by 8am. The front should pass through South Central Kentucky before noon allowing the clouds to clear from the sky and bring out the sun. As soon as this system passes, we will be set for an incredible weekend ahead. Temperatures will be in the low 80s both Saturday and Sunday with clear skies. The next round of rain and storms to come through will be on Monday.

Discussion

A weak cold front is moving in from the west causing rain for the area tonight and tomorrow morning. This small amount of rain(.1"-.25") will be a good chance to clear the spring air of the abundant pollen. The front will pass through Warren County by mid Tuesday morning, taking away the chance for rain, as well as removing the cloud cover from the area. With the passing of this front, temperatures are expected to fall. The high temperatures for both Tuesday and Wednesday is right at the 70° mark. We will be under clear skies for the next couple of days until the new system makes its way into our area. Thursday's system will bring with it another chance for rain and a possible thunderstorm. Temperatures look to be high to finish out the work week.
