LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — We dang near hit 90 degrees in Lexington on Tuesday. Temperatures were running hot and the sun was shining strong.
We’ll see one more July day before entering a more typical forecast for October.
One thing to note as we roll through the seasonal transitioning month of October is how much daylight we lose. On average, we lose 2 minutes and some change each day. That adds up to 65 minutes for the month.
Our last sunset after 7 p.m. hits Oct. 16 and we’ll see that sunrise after 8 a.m. by Oct. 29.
As for this summer heat, it sticks around Wednesday. Overnight lows may hit the upper 50s again and we’ll see another mostly sunny day with highs back in the mid to upper 80s.
We will see high clouds increase late in the day as a slow-moving cold front scoots across the central Plains.
This is the next big thing we’ll deal with to end the week. Thursday will still be warm but we’ll see more clouds. Highs still hit the low to mid-80s.
Scattered rain chances increase into the later evening of Thursday as the front gets closer. As the front passes, we’ll see more widespread rain overnight and into Friday.
Temperatures will drop into the 70s Friday and even further into the 60s for the weekend. Breezy winds from the northwest will be chilly.
We may even see our first frost of the season Sunday morning, which may repeat itself Monday morning.
