LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — Another round of warmer-than-average temperatures slips into the forecast through midweek. While temperatures have been running warmer than average for most of November, a look towards Thanksgiving shows a cooler-than-average trend.

So far, the running average temperature sits at 52.8º. This is +3.5 above the 30-year climate average for November.

We’ll see temperatures continue to contribute to the above-average tally as we roll into Wednesday. Lows overnight will drop to near 40. Clouds will stick around through the night.


On Wednesday, we’ll see more sunshine return as boost high temperatures boost into the mid-to-upper-60s. Southwest winds at 5 to 15 mph will aid in the warmer weather.

Thursday is a repeat with an identical forecast. Clouds will increase again throughout the day ahead of THE NEXT BIG THING:

Scattered rain is the theme for Friday. A cold front will bring a few rounds of light to moderate rainfall, especially later in the day.


Rainfall totals won’t be impressive, with most of us seeing a trace to 0.25”. Isolated higher totals will be possible. This won’t help us much in terms of our moderate drought. We’re down -6.53” of rain for 2023.

After the rain ends late Friday night, cooler temperatures file in over the weekend. Daytime highs will be below average in the low 50s. Overnight lows fall back to freezing. We’ll see sunshine for most of the weekend.


Next week, leading into Thanksgiving, the temperature trend is forecast to have a good chance of running cooler than average.
