LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — Today kicks off a very unsettled weather pattern for the upcoming work week with plenty of rain chances on deck.

This afternoon, expect partly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered showers and storms possible. The best chances will be along the boundary itself across our southern zones as highs climb into the mid-80s. 

Tuesday offers up more rain and storm chances with some stronger storms a possibility. Gusty to damaging winds, heavy rainfall, and lightning are all on the table with development Tuesday as highs run below normal in the low 80s.

As we look ahead to mid and late week, the forecast hits the rinse and repeat cycle each day. Showers and storms remain possible Wednesday and Thursday before a front finally pushes through the region Friday.

Temperatures through this period remain near or below normal as highs hang tough in the 80s.

The front that pushes through Friday is expected to stall across our southern zones this weekend with some dry time ahead for some. As of right now, it looks like storms remain possible Saturday afternoon for southern and southeastern Kentucky with better chances potentially for everyone by Sunday.

Either way you slice it, the next 7 to 10 days look active with daily rain and storm chances on tap. Highs through the weekend remain on the cooler but muggy side with highs in the low 80s.
