Dry weekend ahead of a wet Monday


It’s been a wet and gloomy day across the Bluegrass Region as a frontal boundary gradually pushes through the Ohio Valley. We could still see a few spot showers or two tonight as temperatures drop towards freezing.

Tonight, cloud cover will decrease across the Ohio Valley as the system push further east lows will drop into the upper 20s.

Saturday, anticipate mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid 40s, still seasonable. The average high for this time of year in Lexington is 47 degrees.


Central and eastern Kentucky will dry out briefly over the weekend before a giant dip in the jet stream sends another low pressure storm system towards Kentucky. Rain showers are expected to develop late Sunday night into Monday with widespread showers all day Monday. Fridge cold air moves in behind the showers starting Wednesday.

Models confidence is still not high; however, there could be some wintry mixing on the back end especially in the hills and mountains of eastern Kentucky.
