LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Rain is moving into our southwest counties this afternoon and will be arriving in the immediate Louisville area during the tail end of the evening rush. Some thunder is possible with the heavier bursts of rain moving through tonight. Expect over an inch of rain in our Southern Kentucky counties through very early Friday morning.

>> Your winter weather outlook

Some ponding and minor river/stream flooding may take place with this, but flash flooding looks unlikely given the current guidance. Temperatures rise into the upper 50s early Friday morning and we’ll rise into the mid 60s during the afternoon.

Most of the showers should depart before sunrise Friday with a smattering of sprinkles or drizzle in spots through the day.

Saturday looks to challenge our record high of 72° set back in 1906 as warmth surges in ahead of Sunday’s low pressure system.

While a peek or two of sunshine is possible, clouds will hang around for most of Saturday. Sunday’s rain and storm chance is still there, but questions remain over how far south the aforementioned low pressure center will be from us.

A farther south track would mean a smaller rain chance. Stick with our updated forecasts for the latest on that.

Otherwise it looks like we’ll be in the 50s for the start of next week as a drying trend tries to take hold. A front moving through Wednesday should give us a few showers and take us from the 50s to near 60 down to the 30s for highs by next weekend. Winter is coming back for the end of the month!
