7/8 - 3:30pm - Here Comes the Sun!

It's been a rainy one around Louisville today. The airport has had .45", my house in Southeast Louisville received .88", and Shelbyville got .72" of rain since midnight. Bullitt, Hardin, and Meade Counties in Kentucky all received well over an inch of rain, but Frankfort is the winner coming in at 2.13" since midnight. Check out some of the rain amounts since midnight in the map below from the Kentucky Mesonet. The clouds are still hanging around just east of Louisville, but Louisville and westward is seeing some sunshine. That trend should continue eastward as the afternoon goes on. There's a chance that some scattered storms could redevelop later today around the area, so a few locations could receive more rain today before the cold front triggering these storms moves south.

Sunshine and warmer temperatures will be the rule this weekend around Kentuckiana. High pressure will keep the clouds out of the picture through Monday and temperatures above 90 degrees are a sure bet until then as well. Monday will likely be the hottest day (low to mid 90's) in the near future before another front approaches the area and increases afternoon storm chances yet again.
