LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After another beautiful weather day across the Commonwealth, we’ll wrap up the work week with one more nice day before rain chances return this weekend.
Tonight, clear skies prevail with another chilly night in store. Lows drop into the low and mid-40s with a light wind from the northeast.
Changes arrive as we work deeper into Friday. The day kicks off with sunny skies before high clouds stream in from our east/southeast. This will be the remnants of Ian and the rain chances it brings for the weekend.
Otherwise, most of Friday is dry with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s (cooler highs in the low to mid-60s east & southeast are possible). Rain chances ramp up across far eastern and southeastern Kentucky overnight Friday.
Most of the viewing area gets in on some rain by Saturday morning. As of right now, the best rain chances line up along the I-75 corridor and point eastward with far eastern and SEKY being the bullseye for heavy rain. 1 to 2+ inches of rain looks possible for these areas with some flash flooding issues possible.
Showers linger Sunday and into Monday before skies quickly dry out Monday afternoon. Highs are cooler this weekend in the 60s but a warmup into the mid-70s takes us through next mid-week.
Looking way down the weather road, more rain chances look possible the following weekend!
