LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — We had yet another gorgeous day across the Commonwealth on Wednesday. A cool breeze, some warm sunshine, scattered fair-weather cumulus clouds, and high temperatures under 80 for the second day in a row.

We were on a 53-day streak before falling below 80 yesterday. The last time we were under 80 for a high temperature was back on June 23 with a high of 75.


We’ll jump back above the 80-degree mark Thursday with plenty of sunshine. It will be cool again in the early hours of Thursday as lows hit the upper 50s. This will cause some patchy fog to form early in the day, too.

Thursday will be breezy as winds turn southwest to bring us those warmer temperatures. Wind speeds will roll in at 10 to 15 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph.

Late Thursday, a cold front will drop into the commonwealth. This will bring us a thin, narrow band of rain sometime after 4 p.m.

Rain will linger just past midnight before we ditch the wet theme for Friday. Clouds may linger into Friday morning. That, and a cooler northwest breeze, will keep temperatures from hitting 80 on Friday afternoon.


Temperatures will surge back to the 80s on Saturday with plenty of sunshine. The humidity will slowly spike into the weekend too.

Once that peak heat rolls in Sunday, it’s game on for an excellent 4-day stretch of 90+ with what feels like temps at 100+.
