LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — Scattered showers and storms are spawning out ahead of a cold front that is set to bring some chilly changes into your weekend.
After a week of summer weather, we drop back into very early spring.
Overnight, scattered rain showers and some thunderstorms will drop 0.5″ to 1″+ of rainfall across the Bluegrass. Southeast Kentucky will see a bit less rain somewhere between 0.25″ to 0.5″ into early Saturday.
The bulk of the rain falls overnight as the center of the low passes right through Kentucky.
Showers will linger into early Saturday morning, especially in southeast Kentucky. We’ll see temperatures drop into the 40s overnight before recovering into the low 60s Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds.
Winds will be breezy into Saturday. They roll in from the northwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. It will be a chilly breeze.
Wrap-around moisture from the low will bring a slight chance for pop-up showers Saturday afternoon.
We’ll completely clear into Sunday morning. Lows will drop into the mid-30s which means frost is likely and plants will once again be at risk.
Cover them up or bring them in if you can! High temperatures only hit the low 50s Sunday and it will feel cold despite the sunshine.
Frosty temperatures are likely into Monday morning as well and next week our temperatures hold pretty steady just slightly below average.
