LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — The forecast turns much more active over the next 7 days as a few systems impact the region. The first one arrives late day and into tonight as scattered showers become likely. Otherwise, look for a mainly dry day with highs near 60 degrees.

Showers linger through Wednesday morning with drier skies on tap Wednesday afternoon. The break from the rain doesn’t last long as our next system moves in a late week.

While temperatures quickly surge into the 60s and 70s Thursday and Friday, rain chances will ramp up once again. The setup will throw heavy rain chances our way late Thursday and through Friday where some localized flooding issues could set up.

Depending on how much storm energy we can build up, there remains a conditional threat for a few stronger storms. Otherwise, the focus will be on heavy rainfall and gusty winds.

Showers wrap up Saturday with a quick break in the activity. Another system could bring more rain chances later Sunday and into early next week. Highs through the weekend remain mild with temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
