A storm system that has plagued the eastern half of the nation will be giving Louisville, Kentucky the blues with on and off again showers Friday afternoon and steady rain, heavy at times for Saturday.

Temperatures will be warm and a little muggy Friday, in the upper 70s but will fall back into the upper 60s for Saturday. Just as the festivities end, the weather pattern turns more pleasant on Sunday.
