Wednesday will have partly cloudy skies early in the day followed by mostly sunny skies in the afternoon. Wednesday will also be noticeably cooler from midday into the evening as high temperatures will only be in the mid-to-lower 60s with breezy northeasterly winds in the afternoon. After Wednesday, south-central Kentucky will be on a warming trend yet again - and it looks to stay around longer than a few days!

Thursday will see mostly sunny skies as high temperatures go back in the mid-to-upper 60s with continued northeasterly winds, but they will be lighter. On Friday, we have even more sunshine in store to end the work week on a good note! High temperatures will be in the upper 60s and low 70s! The weekend is split as dry conditions are expected on Saturday while Sunday could see stray showers throughout the day. They do have something in common though - highs in the low-to-mid 70s with southerly winds! By early next week, isolated to widely-scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible as high temperatures go into the upper 70s! Long range computer models indicate that we will continue the warming pattern for the latter half of the month of May along with seasonal moisture, so scattered showers and storms can be expected for the majority of the following week!
