LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — There aren’t many changes to the forecast over the next four days. It’s simple. It’s hot. There are a few minor things to look at, though, that will bring some very slight changes to each day.

Overnight, low temperatures will drop into the upper 60s for some as dew points slowly fall into the low 60s.

High temperatures will still fly into the low-to-mid 90s Wednesday afternoon. It feels like temperatures will “only” range between 94 and 98 degrees as the dew points stall in the mid-60s.

We’ll wake up Wednesday to a mix of sunshine and haze. The wildfire smoke will be thickest Wednesday morning. It will bring a very thin layer of haze to the Commonwealth on Thursday too.

The slight change in the forecast from Wednesday to Thursday is ushered in by our large region of high pressure falling off to the west slightly.

By Thursday, it will work back east. This means the humidity fires back up, and we’ll see dew points surge back to the 70s.


The peak of the heat will roll in on Thursday and Friday. High temperatures will be in the mid-to-upper 90s on both days. We’ll come close to some daily records each day, but it may be tough to break them.

One last tiny change is the chance for storms Thursday. A complex of storms will develop north of the region Wednesday night and dive southwest into the state Thursday morning. We have a very slight chance of a broken line of storms Thursday morning or midday.

If this happens, expect cloud cover to lower daytime high temperatures by a few degrees. It will still be very hot and humid, but the thermometer may not reach those mid-to-upper 90s.
