LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – The forecast turns much more active over the next 24 to 36 hours as a slow-moving cold front drops through town. In return, scattered showers and storms will be possible this evening and tonight with just a few spotty showers late. Otherwise, it’s warm and muggy with lows in the low 70s.

The rinse and repeat of a forecast continues for our Wednesday. The slow moving front slides southeastward while ramping up more rain and storm chances. Some stronger storms look possible at times while bringing gusty winds and heavy rainfall. Some localized flooding issues are a concern as the Flood Watch remains in place through Wednesday evening.

By Thursday, showers finally start to clear the area and push southward. Decreasing clouds with a few spotty showers or storms early on gives way to clearing skies late day. Conditions are still warm and muggy with highs in the low to mid 80s.

An early taste of Autumn arrives late week and just in time for the weekend. Mostly sunny skies wrap up the work week with highs around 80 degrees. It’s more of the same Saturday and Sunday with pleasant highs on either side of 80. A spotty late day storm Sunday cannot be ruled out right now, but most look to stay dry.

Temperatures warm into the low 80s early next week with more rain and storm chances taking aim at the Commonwealth.
