LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After another chilly day across the Commonwealth with many only reaching the 50s, it looks like a cold night prevails once again.

High pressure builds over the region tonight while clearing skies and calming winds take over. This will set the stage for a cold night as lows bottom out in the low to mid 30s.

A frost advisory is out for portions of central and southern Kentucky with a freeze warning in place to our east. Now is the time to bring in or cover up any sensitive vegetation you may have outside! 

After a cold and frosty start Wednesday morning, it’s all eyes on our next system that blows through town. While a stray shower or two early Wednesday cannot be ruled out, best rain chances are set to arrive Wednesday night.

Temperatures are warmer mid-week with highs in the 60s.

LATEST KENTUCKY NEWS:

A cold front quickly approaches the area but pumps on the brakes just to our north and stalls out. It keeps showers around through Thursday morning before conditions trend drier late day.

This front then takes off to the north as a warm front and brings some big changes for the weekend.

Highs climb back into the 60s Thursday before 70s settle in to wrap up the workweek. The late week and weekend stretch of weather looks tremendous while bolstering a late May feel.

Highs Saturday and Sunday surge into the low and mid 80s with dry skies expected!

Enjoy the dry and warm conditions while you can, rain chances return early next week as a strong cold front moves into town. Temperatures turn much cooler later next week with well below normal highs expected.
