Warmer temperatures and more sunshine ahead


After a very rainy weekend we’ve had a nice break these past few days. Today was certainly on the cold side. Highs have been in the 30s thanks to overcast skies keeping the sun hidden and temperatures way below average for this time of year.

Tonight, a trough of low pressure will move across the Ohio Valley and with that sweep away our cloud cover. Temperatures will stay in the low 30s with a light wind out of the southwest keeping us from dropping too cold.

Wednesday, the southwest wind will ramp up a bit with breezy conditions up to 25 even 30 MPH could be possible under partly sunny skies. Temperatures will be closer to average with highs in the lower 50s. Average high for this time of year in Lexington is 48 degrees.


The weather will stay calm on and sunny for Thursday with a weak cold front moving through Thursday evening bringing some shower chances overnight and into Friday.

Beyond that the best chances for rain look to move in late Sunday into Monday but models are still working out the kinks on the timing of this system.
