LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – A very active pattern takes us through mid-week with rounds of showers and storms likely. The good news is temperatures will be warmer for this busy stretch of weather.

Tonight, showers and storms ramp up and become likely for many. While any severe weather remains south and west of the area, some storms could bring heavy rainfall, lightning, and gusty winds. Otherwise, expect breezy conditions with mild lows in the 50s.

Showers continue through Tuesday morning before activity shifts eastward. Some dry time can be expected for the afternoon hours, but an isolated shower or storm cannot be ruled out.

Either way, it will not be widespread rain like in the morning hours. Despite the cloud cover, breezy southerly winds help usher in plenty of warmth with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s.

The break from the rain doesn’t last long as another wave moves into the Commonwealth starting Wednesday morning. Once again, showers and storms look likely with a few stronger storms possible.

This first wave moves out by early to mid-afternoon and paves the way for a line of storms that race into town late Wednesday night. Strong to severe storms will be possible with this line as it moves eastward. As of right now, damaging winds and an isolated tornado appear to be the main threats.

Rain chances quickly wrap Thursday morning as dry time and sunshine take over Thursday afternoon. Highs are cooler but close to seasonal norms with thermometers in the middle 60s. Conditions remain dry Friday before more rain and storm chances take over into Easter weekend.
