LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – It was a dreary, damp, and cool start to the week for many, but some warmer news is heading our way!

Tonight, any drizzle and shower activity will come to an end as mostly cloudy skies hang around. Temperatures remain cool as lows dip into the low 50s.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies win out for your Tuesday as temperatures quickly warm up to near seasonable highs. Thermometers jump into the 70s to near 80 degrees with only a slight chance for a shower to our south.

Our next system gathers some steam just to our west starting late Tuesday night and could throw a few showers our way. Better rain and storm chances ramp up late day Wednesday with a few stronger storms possible.

Main storm threats with this set up will be gusty to damaging winds, some hail, and heavy rainfall at times. Showers and a few storms are expected through Wednesday night. 

Thursday offers up more clouds, more rain, and some thunderstorm activity as a cold front makes its move through the state. This will keep rain chances around through Thursday night.

Showers linger Friday before conditions finally dry out into your holiday weekend. Increasing sunshine takes over Saturday with warm highs in the 80s by Sunday. As of right now, Memorial Day looks great with highs in the middle 80s!
