LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – We’ll wrap up primary election day on a dry and pleasant note as temperatures fall through the 70s this evening. Clouds start increasing tonight as our next system brings rain and storm chances to the forecast mid to late week.

A mix of sun and clouds take over Wednesday afternoon as an approaching low-pressure system moves into the area. This provides the spark for developing showers and storms, some of which could be on the strong side.

Shower and storm chances linger late Wednesday night and into Thursday morning with more potential for strong storms. The main threats will be damaging winds and hail, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.


The front stalls out across the Commonwealth while keeping isolated showers and storms around Thursday. These are not washout conditions, but chances are there as highs warm into the low 80s.

The same stalled boundary lifts northward as a warm front Thursday night while bringing plenty of heat with it for Friday. Mostly sunny skies win out Friday afternoon with highs near 90 degrees!

The break does not last long as our next system drives a cold front through town late-day Saturday and Sunday morning. Another round of showers and storms look likely.

Much cooler air takes over Sunday and into early next week as pleasant highs in the low 70s win out! More rain chances look possible into next mid-week.
