LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — We’re on the up-and-up trend here as we head into midweek. A short surge of warmer-than-average temperatures preludes a gnarly cold front that will bring wind, rain, and cool temps back into the weekend.

Overnight will be chilly again as lows bottom out near 40. We may see a few areas creep into the upper 30s again under the clear sky.

On Wednesday, we’ll see clouds surge as two separate waves of rain pass north and south of the state. Most of us will stay dry with just a stray sprinkle, if possible. High temperatures run near 70.


Thursday will be one of our warmer days as a warm front pushes high temperatures near 80. We’ll see the sunshine dominate the day again.

Friday will stay warm as clouds increase ahead of a cold front set to take over for the weekend. This will also bring a shot at rain. This is the next thing we’re tracking.

Right now, rain chances seem light and scattered, mainly late Friday into early Saturday. Stray showers will linger Saturday and Sunday as the northwest flow takes over to usher in cool temperatures.


We’ll go from the 70s Friday down to the 60s Saturday and into the 50s by Sunday. Those cooler temperatures hold into mid- and late-October too, according to our temperature outlook into next week.
