Frost Advisories will expire at 10 AM across the northeastern two-thirds of the area (including the Lexington metro).
After a cold start, temperatures will soar to near 70 degrees this afternoon under sunshine, mixed with a few cirrus clouds. Tonight will be a bit milder, with lows around 55 under increasing clouds. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will accompany a cold front on Wednesday, and some of the storms could become severe in southern and southeastern Kentucky during the afternoon. By Thursday morning, we should be back to dry weather in the Bluegrass Region, with the final brief shower exiting far southern Kentucky very early in the day. The next storm system will produce showers and thunderstorms on Friday evening and especially on Saturday. Showers will exit eastern Kentucky early on Sunday as dry weather returns. The active pattern will continue into next week, with another chance for thunderstorms with a new disturbance on Monday afternoon. Temperatures will be a bit above average during the weekend and into early next week.
