LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – It was a busy afternoon and evening for central and eastern Kentucky as strong storms rumbled through the area. Storms packed a punch while dishing out high winds, toppling over several large trees, and causing several thousand to lose power.

The good news is the skies trend mainly dry overnight but more storm chances are ahead late week. Otherwise, look for warm and muggy lows with temperatures in the 70s.

Unfortunately, the active pattern rolls on as scattered strong storms remain possible both Thursday and Friday. While not everyone sees rain Thursday, more widespread chances take over Friday and Friday night. Highs late week are still warm but cooler with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.

Rain chances wrap up Saturday from north to south as dry conditions take over for everyone late day. Sunshine regains control by Sunday with more dry time and highs in the low to mid-80s.

Hopefully can take advantage of the cooler air this weekend, we’re back into the upper 80s and low 90s next week with more rain chances showing up Tuesday and Wednesday.
