Midnight Update: Temperatures are dropping and are on their way to what could be new record lows. Currently, most cities in the region are mid 40s with Lexington at 47°.
Skies remain mostly clear with winds now down to 5mph. These are the ideal cooling conditions we will need to reach our frosty conditions by Monday morning.
Happy Mother's Day!
Once colder air moves into the region, the best way to cool it off even more is with little cloud cover and light winds overnight. That is what we are expecting Sunday night into Monday morning. Temperatures will dip down into the mid 30s around sunrise Monday. The current record low for the date in Lexington is 37° set in 1996. We could also see patchy frost in the morning, so if you have any sensitive plants outside, you should consider protecting them before heading to bed.
After a cold start to Monday, we should be able to rebound into the low 60s with mostly sunny skies. Winds will be out of the west between 5 and 10 mph.
The warming trend will kick into high gear Tuesday with highs expected to reach the mid 70s with mostly sunny skies.
Low 80s will be possible for Wednesday!
