LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After a hotter and more humid day with some isolated storms for the area, most are dry out tonight but the unsettled weather pattern ramps up for the holiday weekend.

Tonight, mainly clear skies win out as dry skies take over. Temperatures are much warmer and more humid with lows in the low 70s.

We’ll wrap up the work week on a hot and humid note with increasing storm chances, especially through the afternoon and evening hours. With more moisture in place, better chances show up for isolated to scattered storms. Otherwise, look for highs in the upper 80s and low 90s.

For the holiday weekend, it’s a rinse and repeat of a forecast. A cold front drops southward through town while sparking off plenty of showers and storms for the area. This boundary slowly works southward through Sunday and keeps chances alive for the entire weekend.


Outside of any rain chance, conditions look very warm and very muggy with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees!

As of right now, the fireworks forecast doesn’t look too bad. While a chance exists for a few storms through Monday afternoon, skies trend drier into Monday night and could set the stage for a dry firework show.

Fortunately, the going forecast for next week remains unsettled with plenty of rain chances through next mid-wee (we need the rain). Nothing changes with afternoon highs as temperatures top out in the upper 80s and low 90s.
