LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — It’s going to be wet Friday with rounds of rain, heavy at times, moving through the state.

Temperatures will warm into the 60s this afternoon. If we see peeks of sunshine some upper 60s and even low 70s are possible.

A strong cold front brings storms to the area between 11 PM and 5 AM. That’s the timeframe we could see strong to severe storms.

The Storm Prediction Center has the entire viewing area outlined in a risk for severe storms. A Level 3 risk west of I-75 and the lowest risk (Level 1) in eastern Kentucky as storms should get weaker over time.

The greatest storm threat is damaging wind gusts, but an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out.

Once the rain moves out early Saturday morning, we’ll see sunshine break out for a few hours, but that’s when the wind cranks up.

Clouds roll back in during the afternoon and evening and we could see some sprinkles or isolated showers during that time.

It will be a windy Saturday with gusts over 50 MPH possible, which could lead to isolated power outages.

High temperatures on Saturday occur before Noon and then drop into the 40s late in the day.

Sunshine returns on Sunday with highs in the 50s.
