LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — A cold front will move through late morning into the early afternoon. Ahead of this front, gusty showers and storms will march across the state.

The Storm Prediction Center has the northern half of Kentucky outlined in a Level 1 and 2 risks for severe storms, with damaging wind gusts the main threat.

Most of the area will dry out with some sunshine breaking out during the afternoon.

The big weather story is for non-storm strong wind gusts, which has prompted a Wind Advisory for the entire viewing area until 7 PM.

Wind gusts between 50 and 60 MPH are possible from late morning into the afternoon, which could lead to isolated power outages and tree damage.

Clouds linger overnight into the first half of Tuesday. By Tuesday afternoon, clouds will gradually break up leading to sunshine.

We’re already looking ahead at another powerful storm system that could bring heavy rain and strong winds on Friday.
