LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After a hot day in the 90s for many, more heat and humidity take over Wednesday before a cold front brings storm chances late day.

Tonight, clear skies win out as dry and calm conditions prevail. Temperatures are milder tonight when compared to the last few nights with lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Wednesday kicks off on a sunny note but clouds increase through the afternoon hours with projected highs hitting the mid-90s. Factor in heat indices, feel-like conditions will range between 100 to 105 degrees at times.

Outside of the heat, our next cold front drops in from the northwest while interacting with an unstable atmosphere. Because of this, isolated to scattered showers and storms will be possible late afternoon and through the evening hours with strong storms on the table.

Any shower or storm activity finally comes to an end around midnight as the front clears the area. Clouds decrease in coverage as lows fall into the 60s once again.

The pattern relaxes a bit late week and into the first part of the weekend as dry conditions regain control. Temperatures are slightly “cooler” Thursday and Friday with thermometers hitting the upper 80s to low 90s.


Low 90s return for the weekend but a cold front late-day Sunday introduces more storm chances to round out the weekend. Skies look drier and cooler into next week with highs in the low to mid 80s.
