LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Sunshine has begun to peak through the clouds across WAVE Country. This will help temperatures warm into the 50s Friday afternoon. 

Clouds will increase once again during the evening and overnight hours as southerly flow increases. 

Isolated showers are possible overnight, especially in areas north and northwest of Louisville. Temperatures will remain in the 50s overnight before warming to near 60 early Saturday morning. 

Things will continue to warm into the mid-60s by 2 p.m. or so on Saturday. Winds will be southwesterly and strong before the front. 

As the front itself moves through during the afternoon, rain will become more widespread. Behind the front, winds will shift and begin to flow from the northwest during the later portions of the afternoon and become even stronger. 

The wind shift will quickly drag temperatures down into the 40s. We'll eventually bottom out in the 30s by early Sunday morning. Sunday will be on the chilly side, but sunshine will return.
