LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After a quick break from the rainfall, mother nature ramps up the weather pattern as showers and storms return mid to late week.

Tonight, mostly cloudy skies take over as our next system’s warm front lifts northward across the Commonwealth. This will spark off a few showers and storms late tonight and Wednesday morning.

Rounds of showers and storms show up once again late day Wednesday with some stronger storms possible. The main threats with any activity that fires up will be damaging winds gusts, some hail, and heavy rainfall.

Showers and a few storms linger on a scattered bases through Wednesday night, but washout conditions are not expected. Outside of the rain chances, lows are milder with thermometers dropping into the mid-60s.

Thursday brings yet another round of showers and storms and some of those could be on the strong to severe side. Damaging winds, hail, and heavy rainfall are the primary threats, but we could also see a rotating storm or two. That threat is low but worth mentioning.


Showers linger Friday with plenty of clouds and much cooler highs around 70 degrees. Rain chances are out of town by early Saturday and just in time to kick off the long holiday weekend.

Temperatures quickly warm up through the weekend with highs in the low 80s by Sunday with upper 80s slated for Memorial Day!
