At 4:40 p.m. Monday, the Paducah National Weather Service office had recorded a quarter of an inch of rain for the day. While a forecaster said the rain was expected to subside with the setting sun, rain was expected to develop again overnight and continue in the days ahead.
"The next couple of days are kind of stormy," NWS Lead Forecaster David Humphrey said. "And we have 1 to 2 inches on average in the forecast through Wednesday."
Humphrey said that, locally, higher amounts are possible. He said a high severe weather risk isn't forecast, but isolated severe weather "is never out of the question this time of year."
The wet weather will bring with it cooler temperatures, with highs in the 70s forecast for today and lows in the 50s tonight followed by highs in the 60s on Wednesday.
Humphrey said scattered showers and cool temperatures are expected for Thursday and Friday, with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s.
