LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — June is off to a hot start. We almost hit 90 Thursday and we’ve got a chance to hit the mark each day into the weekend.

This would typically be ahead of schedule since our first average 90-degree day in the calendar year comes on June 11.

It has been 253 days since we’ve hit 90+ and that came on Sept. 21 of 2022 when we hit 94 degrees. Friday will be hot again, overnight lows dip into the 60s.

Daytime highs go back to 90, but the humidity levels drop even further, so it won’t be muggy. We’ll keep the drier theme into the weekend too, but the heat won’t waiver.

Rain chances are tough to come by even into next week. We’re starting to see some drought conditions develop across parts of the Bluegrass.


There won’t be any significant rain in the forecast in the next 10 days. There is a bright side to this forecast if you’re sick of the heat already.

We’ll see some relief as some cooler air works in next week to drop temps closer to 80 each day Monday and beyond.
