Skies tomorrow should be virtually cloud-free as the ridge of high pressure parks itself over eastern Kentucky. This ridge may drift northward enough to allow warmth from the Gulf states to creep our way. Consequently, high temperatures tomorrow will have a shot at cracking 70°. This "warmth" will not stick around, though, as a weak cold front is expected to move through south-central Kentucky early Saturday morning. Temperatures will dip slightly, and a few showers will be possible, although the models indicate that the best chance for rain will be along and north of the Ohio River. Cloud coverage will increase as well, although the sun should return in time for Sunday.
