LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Scattered rain is rolling on Wednesday night. A warm front will boost temps into the 60s which will also prompt some thunderstorms into Thursday, too.

A cold front comes in early Thursday

Wednesday night will be wet. Scattered rain and thunder will bring us soggy weather through mid-morning. Eastern Kentucky will see those showers fizzle out by lunch.

Temperatures will jump into the low 60s Thursday afternoon just before the cold front rolls in. Dew points will only climb into the 40s though, so a few showers and a brief thunderstorm will be possible Thursday evening along that front.

Rainfall amounts through Thursday night

Rainfall amount will range from 0.1” to 0.5” through Thursday evening. The threat of severe storms remains in far western Kentucky Wednesday, and up in central Ohio Thursday.

Still, this system packs a punch with gusty winds. Winds will start out of the east Thursday morning at 15 to 25 mph. A WIND ADVISORY has been issued for wind gusts up to 45 mph. If it’s not attached, tie it down.


Wind Advisory for Thursday

Wind turn west-northwest Thursday night into Friday and those breezy winds keep humming at 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph into the weekend.


Temps dive into the 40s Friday and hold there through the weekend. Lows dip below freezing. Those gusty winds will pull wind chills down into the 20s, and possibly the teens, heading into the weekend.
