LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – A cold front drops through town through this evening and brings a line of showers and storms.

Some storms could be strong to severe while packing damaging wind gusts, some hail, heavy rainfall, and lightning.

Storms drift southeastward through central Kentucky this evening before heading into southern and southeastern Kentucky tonight. As this happens, storms are expected to weaken but could still pack a punch.

The front clears the area after midnight as rain chances come to an end. Otherwise, expect a less humid feel to take over late with lows falling into the 60s.

High pressure builds in late-week and for the first part of the weekend as plenty of dry time settles back in. Thermometers late week are a touch cooler with much lower humidity levels and highs in the mid to upper 80s.

While it will be warm, the overall “feel” is comfortable as we wrap up the work week.

The weekend will offer more heat and humidity along with storm chances by Sunday. Highs climb into the low 90s both days, but a cold front brings scattered storms back to the forecast. Some storms could be on the stronger side Sunday afternoon and evening before drying out Monday morning.

Mother nature offers up another break from the heat early next week with highs in the lower 80s!
