Sunday, expect the day to start off cloudy but will slowly see a decrease in clouds throughout the day. Temperatures will remain cool with highs in the upper 40s.

The sun will stick around for Monday and warm up to more average temperatures, highs will reach the mid 50s. Average high for Lexington this time of year is 52 degrees.


The next system appears to move in Tuesday and Wednesday and may bring soaking showers to Kentucky when several people are attempting to travel for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

On top of what looks to be rainy mess, pressure gradients may be fairly tight in Kentucky Tuesday and Wednesday meaning it will be windy with gusts up to 30-40 MPH.

As of now, Thanksgiving its self looks dry, but another soaking rain showers event looks to move Friday and especially Saturday with a large temperatures drop…. Possible snow showers.
