LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — We kept the warm summer weather rolling to start the first full week of June. Mother Nature wants to hold that heat just for a brief while before scattered showers pull temperatures down through Wednesday.

Lows drop into the mid-50s overnight under a partly cloudy sky. Tuesday’s high temperatures stroll back into the mid-80s. It will be partly cloudy and hazy yet again as Canadian wildfire smoke lingers across the US.


A cold front will work southward into Wednesday though, bringing a mostly cloudy sky and some scattered rain showers.

We’ll also see high temperatures struggle to recover into the mid-70s. Rainfall will be most likely in the early morning, and it will linger into the early afternoon for southern Kentucky.

We’ll see anywhere from a trace of rain for some, to upwards of 1’’ for others. There will be a narrow band of heavier rainfall totals through central Kentucky.

Once this front wraps up late Wednesday, we’ll make the climb back toward the 80s Thursday. Mid to upper 80s return for Friday and Saturday too, with plenty of sun.

More rain showers and thunderstorms will be possible Sunday and some of those will stretch into early Monday.
