Expect rain on Friday and throughout the weekend in Central Kentucky — and when it isn't raining, the sun will struggle to break through the clouds.
Rain was forecast to start around daybreak Friday, with some possible early-morning lightning, said meterologist Mike Paddock with the National Weather Service in Louisville.
Paddock said there could be a mid-morning break in the rain Friday, but it is likely to pick up again in the afternoon and evening hours.
Depending on where the line of storms develops, some areas could experience damaging winds, though not as punishing as those that lashed the region last week.
The forecast calls for rain overnight Friday and through Saturday, and intermittently on Sunday. Rainfall totals for the three-day weekend could reach 2 1/2 to 3 inches.
High temperatures are likely to be in the 70s all three days.
The beginning of next week will bring little relief, as thunderstorms are forecast through Wednesday night. Paddock said that flash flood warnings remain posted for the Bluegrass, at least for a few more days.
