LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — Kentucky was blessed with another gorgeous, sunny day to close out the work week. If you haven’t heard about the changes in store for the weekend yet, get ready for a quick flip in the forecast.

A cold front is working into the state tonight. Temperatures hold steady in the low 60s as breezy winds pick up from the west at 10 to 20 mph.


Scattered rain will be most widespread in the overnight hours, with some spotty rain lingering into early Saturday morning.

Saturday will be mostly overcast, with spotty rain on and off through the afternoon. High temperatures will hit the mid-60s at some point in the day, but then they plummet once the front moves by.


Those breezy winds turn northwest into Sunday, after the passing of the front, and continue at 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. Highs will get stuck in the 50s at best on Sunday afternoon.

Spotty rain showers will be possible at any point on Sunday as this low-pressure center stalls out over the northeast.

Rainfall totals won’t be impressive, with a trace of 1/4” possible across central and eastern Kentucky.


Heading into next week, the system that is bringing us these changes will stick around to bring spotty rain and a cool breeze through Tuesday.
