LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After an active weekend for central and eastern Kentucky, the week started off on a much calmer note. While some did see a few spotty storms, it was mainly dry and hot with highs around 90 degrees. Unfortunately, as we look ahead through mid-week, more storm chances are ahead.

Monday night, partly cloudy skies prevail with muggy lows in the upper 60s and low 70s. A few storms tonight and into Tuesday morning looks possible but nothing severe is expected. Breezy winds and heavy rain would be the main concerns with any development.

By Tuesday afternoon, another Flood Watch kicks into place for central and eastern Kentucky. An incoming cold front slowly drops southward through mid-week while offering up more scattered showers and storms.

Overall, the severe threat is low for the next two days, but storms that develop will be efficient rain producers and could lead to instances of flash flooding. It’s something we need to keep a close eye on moving forward.

The cold front finally drops through town by Thursday as mainly dry skies prevail. It’s still warm Thursday afternoon with highs in the 80s but humidity levels drop through the afternoon and evening hours.


A much cooler and less humid brand of air sets up shop by Friday and into the weekend for the area. Expect some dry time both Friday and Saturday with only a spotty chance for a few storms Sunday. Highs for this stretch hit the upper 70s and low 80s with overnight lows in the 50s! An early taste of Autumn is heading our way!
