LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — The last of this recent stretch of summer weather ends Thursday. Finally, some real fall feels will move in just in time for the weekend.

Before the big drop in temperatures and our first chance at some patchy frost, we’ve got some rain to deal with.

Overnight, low temperatures drop into the low 60s as clouds increase ahead of a cold front that will move in late Thursday.

Prior to the front, temperatures Thursday afternoon will reach the upper 70s to low 80s. It will become more cloudy than anything else, and then the rain will begin.

Thursday evening, after 4 p.m., we’ll start to see spotty showers become more frequent. Overnight, we’ll see some widespread, light, steady rainfall.


This will hold temperatures in the 60s for early Friday. Scattered rain will linger through the first half of the day Friday before a dry trend takes over into the evening.

Rainfall totals will range from a trace to a few tenths of an inch. Some isolated higher totals from 1/4” to 1/2” will be possible.

Beyond the rain, the breezy northwest winds will stir up cool temperatures into the weekend. High temperatures will struggle to get into the 60s on both Saturday and Sunday.


We’re looking at our first chance at some patchy frost by Sunday morning as lows dip into the 30s. Areas that drop below 36 degrees for a few hours will have the best chance of seeing some frost form.

Next week, we rebound slightly to seasonable temperatures. It looks like fall will hang on even as we warm back to the 70s.
