The rain showers return tonight with cloudy skies. Temperatures will drop to around 42 degrees by Tuesday morning.

We’ll start out with scattered showers Tuesday with the showers becoming more isolated by the afternoon. Looks like we could see that misty rain at times once again. Highs only get to about 44 degrees with a cooler northeasterly breeze at 5 to 10 mph and gusts up to 20 mph.


More widespread rain moves back in Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. The chance of a wintry mix will remain in place for Southeast Kentucky and Plateau early Wednesday, which can lead to some light ice potential and an isolated First Alert Weather Day for Cumberland, Fentress, Scott, Campbell, Claiborne Counties in TN plus Wayne, McCreary, Knox, Bell and Harlan Counties in KY.
