LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — The work week kicks off cooler with temperatures in the 40s for many locations. A system passing through provides a small rain chance through the morning hours with drier skies ahead this afternoon. Otherwise, expect a mix of sun and clouds with highs around 60 degrees.

Another quick-hitting disturbance keeps the rain chances alive Tuesday afternoon and evening. We’re not expecting washout conditions by any means, but a few scattered PM showers look possible. Temps run cooler with highs in the low to mid-50s.

The brief cool down lingers through midweek with highs in the 50s under partly sunny skies. More sunshine wins out Thursday with highs surging back into the 60s. Overall, Thursday looks like a great weather day.

By Friday, our next system takes aim at the region and this looks likely a fairly strong system at that. Showers and storms become likely through Friday with some stronger storms a possibility. This is the next big thing we’re watching closely. In addition to the storm chances, very gusty winds look likely through Friday night before drier and calm skies would take over by Saturday afternoon.

Highs through the weekend are around 60 degrees with dry skies on tap by Sunday.
