LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — What a wonderful way to end the month of May. Toasty temps, a few tall clouds to cast some temporary shade, and a couple of pop-up storms to trickle across the Commonwealth again.

We keep the heat for the first week of June too, with no stop to summer in sight. May was a rather normal month for temperatures.

We were just -0.7º off the average across the entire month. It was a less windy month, but it was also a drier month. Lexington is now almost 3’’ below average on rain for the month of May. We’re also down almost 2’’ for all of 2023.

That trend doesn’t change the over the next 10 days either. Lows drop into the 60s the next several nights and rebound into the upper 80s to near 90 ahead of the weekend.


Friday and Saturday will be the warmest of them all as we eclipse 90. Dew points stay near 60 degrees, so we won’t be feeling any excessive sweat.

Stray showers and isolated thunderstorms will stay in the forecast through Thursday, but we will lose the moisture for Friday and Saturday so those chances will disappear.

A weak surge in moisture Sunday will bring back chances for spotty showers to end the weekend. That trend carries into next week too, with little change in the weather pattern further down the line next week.
