LOUISVILLE, Ky. — We're in for a sunny start to the weekend with chilly temperatures on Saturday, but we'll close out the weekend with wetter and warmer conditions on Sunday. Starting as early as Sunday morning, a few areas mainly north of Louisville could see some light freezing rain that could cause a few slick spots on the roadways.
Chilly temperatures in the 20s early Sunday morning will quickly warm to the 40s by the afternoon. A warm front on the leading edge of an area of low pressure will be what helps our temps rise to just above normal for this time of year through the second half of Sunday.
As we go into Sunday afternoon and evening, some light showers will begin to develop which will pick up to a heavier rainfall Sunday night as an area of low pressure approaches the Ohio River Valley.
This area of low pressure will continue to move northeast over Kentuckiana into Monday and bring moderate to heavy showers at times.
The trailing cold front on the back side of this system will reinforce shower chances into Monday afternoon with rainfall diminishing Monday evening as the system moves to the northeast.
By Tuesday morning we'll see drier conditions and a break from the rainfall until our next system moves in Wednesday evening.
Overall we're expecting 1"-2" of rainfall from this system between Sunday afternoon into Tuesday morning. Areas along and south of the parkways will see higher totals than Southern Indiana.
