The day started off with some dense fog and scattered rain showers under gloomy skies; however during the afternoon we saw peaks of blue skies and temperatures moved into the mid to upper 60s. The Lexington Bluegrass Airport broke a 70 year old record high temperature.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Tonight, expect decreasing clouds with a few more showers possible as a cold front moves across the region with a breezy northwest wind as lows drop to the mid 30s.
Thursday will be calm and quieter with mostly sunny skies and cooler conditions as highs on move into the mid to upper 40s.
A surface low with a warm front accompanied by a cold front will move through the Ohio Valley Friday afternoon and Saturday. Expect light to moderate rain showers with Saturday being the soaker of the two days.
The rain will be an annoyance but the true power from this system will come after with a Canadian High moving in and the Jet Stream dipping. Temperatures will finally start to feel like winter across much of the United States. As we look to next week highs will only top off into the upper 20s to low 30s with overnights lows in the teens.
