LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — Memorial Day weekend is here, and Mother Nature throws some icky weather at us right in the middle of two decent days. Scattered rain will take over at least the first half of your Sunday, with isolated showers possible into Memorial Day itself.

Tonight, temperatures bottom out back in the 50s. We’ll start with sunshine Saturday as highs hit the mid-70s again.

Clouds will increase throughout the day as rain moves toward southeastern Kentucky. Widespread rainfall will move in through early Sunday morning. Scattered showers will persist into Sunday afternoon.


Temperatures will get stuck in the 60s for most with some not even making it out of the 50s in southeastern Kentucky.

They’ll also see the most rain there. A trace to ½’’ will be possible around the Lexington metro. The further southeast you go, rain totals get closer to 1’’+.


We’ll stay mostly cloudy to overcast into Memorial Day with isolated showers possible, but the bulk of the rain will be on Sunday.

Memorial will have highs back in the mid to upper 70s, especially if we can sneak in some sunshine.


The rest of next week gets more summer-like with highs in the 80s each day. Humidity will increase which will bring a chance for pop-up showers and thunderstorms every day.
