First, you'll notice mid and high levels clouds streaming in ahead of the system on Friday.  Clouds will continue to thicken up and showers will develop south of Louisville Saturday morning.  There's a pretty good chance much of our area will have plenty of dry time through the daytime Saturday, before the rain becomes more widespread Saturday night into Sunday.

You'll notice humidity levels will be on the rise as some of the tropical moisture moves our way.  Temperatures will be pretty steady in the 70s this weekend.
