LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Scattered showers and a few storms linger through this evening before activity finally wraps up late tonight. The pesky low-pressure system will get a kick off to the east and this sets the stage for a great holiday weekend.

Tonight, as mentioned before, showers come to an end under mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures are cooler as lows fall into the 50s.

We’ll kick off the long holiday weekend under partly sunny skies with pleasant but warmer highs in the mid-70s. If you’re asking where the warmth is, hang in there, conditions really heat up into next week!

Upper-level riding takes hold of the region, and this is set to bring lots of dry time with WARM temperatures building in. Highs Sunday climb into the 80s with upper 80s ahead of Memorial Day!

LATEST KENTUCKY NEWS:

The area remains rain free through next mid-week before our next system finally brings storm chances back to the region Thursday. The cold front would clear the area this time next week with much cooler highs in the low to mid-70s. This could be the going theme as we look ahead into early June.
