LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — It was warm and windy Tuesday as high temps topped out in the mid-60s. We saw a bit more sun than anticipated but that helped us achieve warmer temperatures.

A weak cold front is rolling across the northern Kentucky border overnight which will bring us a few scattered, light rain showers early Wednesday.

We’ll be dry most of Wednesday otherwise with high temperatures in the upper 50s. It will be cloudy and a bit less windy.

The next system rolls in late Wednesday though, which brings back more wind, rain, and a chance for strong to severe storms for parts of Kentucky.


Mainly west of I-65, the isolated severe storm threat will bring small hail and gusty winds. We may see a few storms rumble through central and eastern Kentucky overnight into early Thursday.

There is a level 1 risk (of 5) for isolated severe storms in the dark green shaded area. Those in the mint-shaded region will see a few rumbles in the mix of the rain.


Otherwise, just expect some rain. As the cold front from this system passes, non-thunderstorm wind gusts could top out over 50 mph Thursday afternoon. Rain tapers off and the sky slowly clears but the wind will be the problem.

There’s no peace Friday either as a new wave rolls in with more light rain that may turn to flurries for Saturday. Superbowl Sunday looks quiet and sunny but cooler with highs in the 40s.
