LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — We did it! Lexington hit its first 90 of the calendar year. We’ve ended a 254-day streak of sub-90-degree temperatures dating back to last September.
We’ll see a shot at a few more 90s in a row for your weekend, too!
Overnight temperatures fall into the mid-60s. It will be hot again Saturday with high temperatures in the low 90s.
Humidity stays relatively low, and we’ll see a gentle breeze from the northeast at 5 to 15 mph.
As we get closer to the peak heating hours in the afternoon, a few isolated, brief thunderstorms will be possible.
These will be quick rainmakers with some gusty winds and possibly some small hail. We repeat that forecast for Sunday as well but this time we might not get all the way to 90.
The heat sticks around into the start of next week, but as colder air inches in for Tuesday, we’ll get another chance for spotty storms.
THE NEXT BIG THING said by midweek, we’re back to the pleasant upper 70 to low 80s with no humidity, plenty of sun, and little chance for rain.
