LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — Wednesday turned out to be wonderful. We’ve had plenty of sun. It was warm but not humid as high temperatures made it into the 70s.

That pleasant pattern continues into Thursday, but we’re not with rain and thunderstorm chances the next few days either.

You may have noticed a white, milky hue to the sky throughout your Wednesday. Wildfire smoke originated in northwestern Canada and leaked all the way into the middle south. We’ll see some periods of thicker smoke, but surface air quality will not be impacted much.

The sky will remain clear for the most part overnight which will lead us into the low 50s, and for some even into the upper 40s. A cool start to Thursday will rebound into the 70s again in the afternoon.

There is a slight chance for a couple of isolated storms late Thursday afternoon/evening. Most of us will remain dry. Better chances for rain to come in late Friday night through Saturday morning. New rainfall totals will range from a trace to 0.25″, with isolated higher totals exceeding an inch, especially in southern Kentucky.

Heading into the rest of the weekend we dry out. Temperatures continue to be seasonable and comfortable. We’ll get some gusty winds as these showers move through, but other than that, it will be quiet.
