Temperatures are soaring into the upper 50s this afternoon, with a few areas reaching 60 thanks to active winds from the south and plenty of sunshine. As warm as we are, we will fall far shy of the record in Lexington, which is 71 for January 6th, set back on a much warmer day in 1946. Skies will transition from mostly sunny through midday to partly sunny in the late afternoon as a cold front draws near from the Upper Midwest. Late tonight, toward dawn, the front will arrive, but it won't have much moisture to work with, so most of central Kentucky will remain dry while scattered showers develop in southern Kentucky. Showers will linger in southern and southeastern Kentucky into Saturday morning, and it will only be slightly cooler under partly sunny skies in the Bluegrass this weekend. A second disturbance will slide along the same front on Sunday, producing another round of scattered showers in southern Kentucky. Early on Monday, the disturbance may slide far enough northeast to produce a very light wintry mix in some areas. A much larger storm system will arrive on Tuesday evening into Wednesday, producing a widespread round of rain, and much colder air will follow on the heels of that storm system. Rain showers will mix with and change to snow showers on Thursday of next week.
