LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — A rainy Friday eventually gives way to drier skies this evening and tonight.

Up until this point, scattered showers and a few storms will linger through the afternoon hours. Outside of any rain, expect breezy and cool conditions with highs in the 50s.

Shower chances wrap up tonight as partly cloudy skies prevail. Lows are cooler as thermometers fall into the low to mid-40s.

Our next system is a quick hitter that arrives Saturday afternoon. Look for breezy and warmer conditions as highs surge well into the 60s. A spotty shower looks possible (especially north and east), but most should stay on the drier side of things.

Cooler air briefly settles in to round out the weekend with highs in the 50s to around 60 degrees Sunday afternoon. Some frost potential could show up Monday morning as lows drop into the mid to upper 30s. The brief shot of cool air doesn’t last long!

The “Next Big Thing” will focus on our warm-up into and through the middle of next week. Dry skies win out for much of next week as highs climb into the mid-70s. Rain chances could return late next week and into the weekend. This would be followed by another potential cool-down!
