Midnight Update: The light rain has nearly come to an end in far eastern Kentucky and should be gone by 1 a.m. Thursday. The rest of us will continue to stay dry the rest of the night. Clouds are breaking apart and will continue to clear into Thursday morning, giving way to mostly sunny skies the rest of the day.
Temperatures have now fallen into the 30s, with Lexington sitting at 37°. It still looks like we will fall into the mid and upper 20s by our Thursday morning commute to work and school.
Meteorologist Michael Estime will have the latest on our big warming trend starting at 5 a.m. on Good Morning Kentucky.
We are seeing a few light showers in eastern and northeastern Kentucky early this evening. The rain is moving southeast and is slowly sliding down the Kentucky border with Ohio and West Virginia. Some of this light rain could turn to a light snow before ending by midnight tonight.
Skies will begin to clear by Thursday morning. We will start the day on the chilly side with temperatures in the mid and upper 20s.
Skies will be mostly sunny through the afternoon on Thursday, helping temperatures climb into the upper 40s. This is still about 10° below average for this time of year, but is an improvement.
We will have a slight chance of rain on Friday, with temperatures breaking into the low 50s!
