LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After a fantastic weather weekend, mother nature will throw some big-time changes our way. The good news is scattered rain chances continue to push eastward tonight as dry skies eventually take over from west to east.

A few showers linger across far eastern Kentucky Tuesday morning before everyone dries out. Otherwise, it’s a much cooler night under partly cloudy skies and lows in the 40s/50s.

High pressure builds in and dominates our weather pattern through mid-week. Gradually clearing skies gives way to some afternoon sunshine Tuesday with cooler highs in the upper 50s and low 60s.

LATEST KENTUCKY NEWS:

More of the same hangs around Wednesday and Thursday. Each day brings dry cooler temperatures in the low 60s under partly to mostly sunny skies.

Clouds increase late-day Thursday before turning mostly cloudy Friday. A passing warm front could spark a few showers late day with highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Our next system increases rain chances just in time for the weekend. Scattered showers and storms look possible both Saturday and Sunday with more rain chances into early next week. While temperatures warm into the 70s for this period, the pattern does look more active with showers and storms.
