The 20 mph wind gusts will be followed by the cold front, which is timed to hit south-central Kentucky late tonight. Rain will keep ahead of the front, however, so expect rain around noon today.

Rain Continues Tomorrow

Cloud cover will remain high and rain chances will remain, but the winds will start to die down. While the winds are calmer, the rain will start strong, then fizzle out. The temperatures will reach into the low-60s early on in the day, then start to drop by noon tomorrow. The air will feel a tad cooler, due to the northern shift after the cold front. Make sure to have another jacket handy, just in case you feel a little colder.
