LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — What a dreary, cold, breezy day across the Bluegrass. High temperatures hardly hit the mid-50s. Clouds kept the sky gray all day. The good news is that we’ll be seeing sunshine return with warming temperatures through at least midweek.

Overnight lows will dip near 40. Clouds, mist, and maybe some fog will still be possible into the early morning before the sky clears to the sun on Tuesday afternoon.

High temperatures will climb towards 60 or higher on Tuesday. We’ll still deal with some clouds, but more sunshine is in the forecast. Winds will settle a bit too, but they’ll still cause a cool breeze from the west at 5 to 15 mph.

Heading into Wednesday, we’re in for a near-average mid-October day! Highs head towards the upper 60s, and we’ll get plenty of sunshine.


By Wednesday night, though, a new system starts to roll in, which will bring rain chances for the second half of the week.

Highs stay in the upper 60s Thursday as scattered rain showers spread across the state. We’ll have rain continue into the evening too as another cold front moves in. The winds will get breezy again as that front passes.


Temperatures will fall back to the 50s into the weekend, with spotty rain lingering through early Saturday. Then, we’ll trend drier into the start of next week.

Looking down the line, our temperature trend is heading back towards above-average temperatures for the last week of October.
