LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — After another slightly cooler day on Wednesday, Mother Nature is primed to bring a healthy dose of rain to the region overnight. While the severe threat is low, some areas could see some hefty rain totals in a short amount of time.

Multiple rounds of scattered storms are already moving into the state. We’ll see a few bursts of heavier showers and storms, mainly overnight and into early Thursday.


The biggest concern will be the potential for flash flooding. Rainfall totals will vary across central and eastern Kentucky. A few different, narrow bands of heavy rain will tally up to between 1 and 3 inches or more.


There is also a slim chance that a few storms will be strong to severe overnight, but there’s a better chance for that in western Kentucky.

A few scattered storms will linger into Thursday afternoon before the slow clearing process begins. High temperatures will struggle to break 80. It will still feel pretty humid even after the rain.

Friday will recover, with high temperatures sneaking into the mid-80s again. It may feel close to 90 at times since the humidity will remain sticky.

The next chance at scattered storms rolls in with a new system on Saturday. A few rounds of rain may dampen portions of the weekend and could spill into Sunday too.

The weekend still looks hot, despite rain chances. High temperatures will approach 90 Saturday and Sunday.


Monday will bring another chance for some rain as a cold front swings through. This will leave us with a cooler trend with highs near 80 for the first half of the week.
