Jim Caldwell’s forecast: Potent late week system

Weather

LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – Temperatures will struggle to reach the mid-50s this afternoon. It will take our next system developing and moving into Kentucky to give temps a brief bump.

The next couple of days will feature cool temperatures and calm conditions. I do not expect anything significant to come our way until we reach Thursday. A major storm system will bring showers & some storms to the region on Thursday. This system looks pretty impressive with strong winds and all of those showers & storms.

Here are a few highlights of what to expect:

  • It’s a slow-moving cutoff storm system with nothing to move it along.
  • Rounds of rain will be common during this time with a general 1″-2″ possible.
  • Wind gusts may push 30mph on occasion.
  • Temps will trend down through this period with a day or two possibly staying in the 40s for highs.
  • There’s a chance this system lingers into the start of Halloween.
