LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – It was a cloudy and cooler day across the Commonwealth with a few rounds of spotty showers. Tuesday night, we’re clearing out and cooling down back to near freezing before a few good days ahead.

Overnight lows drop into the upper 20s. This will damage any plants left unattended. Wednesday we’ll see a mostly sunny sky as high temps roll back into the upper 50s.


High pressure will keep things quiet and comfortable for us again overnight. We’ll wake up to temperatures near freezing again Thursday before we shoot to the low 60s. Plenty of sunshine in the forecast that day too as winds remain light.

A new system rolls in for Friday. This will bring a chance for heavy rain, strong to severe storms and very gusty winds into the weekend.

We’ll see a chance for showers overnight Thursday into Friday. Strong to severe storms will be possible in the later evening and overnight.

Heavy rainfall over 1’’ is likely for everyone. We’ll non-t-storm wind gusts over 50 mph into Saturday again.

Temps stay in the mid-60s for Friday and Saturday before they sink back to below freezing Sunday morning.


A clear sky and sunshine will put us back into a quiet day Sunday with temps in the 50s. The long-term forecast suggests warmer than average temps for the first half of April.
